All apologies to those who may have read by previous post about ODU being involved in the visitor side of the 2015 Hall of Fame Tip Off bracket. It turns out that information is incorrect and ODU will be in the Naismith bracket and not the Springfield.
I was responding to two different sites that were reporting that ODU was in a bracket with Niagara, Buffalo and North Carolina A&T. I asked for and received clarification that the Monarchs will actually be in the bracket with Florida, Purdue and Saint Joseph’s.
If true the Monarchs will likely get two home games before heading back to Uncasville Connecticut, where they placed runner up to Kentucky in 2011. The Wildcats ended up winning the national championship that season.
This is much better news! This tournament will also feature Dorian Finney-Smith as a RS Senior for Florida and Ramone Snowden as a projected Junior for Niagara. They both were heavily recruited by ODU and from the Hampton Roads area.
