Women's conference tournaments

Old Dominion still perfect in Colonial

NEWARK, Del. — Tiffany Green had 19 points as top-seeded and 14th-ranked Old Dominion held off eighth seed UNC Wilmington 82-65 in the quarterfinals of the Colonial Athletic Association tournament Friday. The Monarchs improved to 48-0 in Colonial tournament games and 37-0 all time against the Seahawks.

Old Dominion will play Towson, which beat Drexel 62-53, in one semifinal today.

Sophomore guard Kita Waller's layup with 3.3 seconds left lifted Virginia Commonwealth over Northeastern 51-50. VCU will meet second seed James Madison, which beat William & Mary 53-46, in today's other semifinal.

Big West: UC Santa Barbara beat Cal Poly 77-57 to reach its 12th straight conference final, where it will meet UC Davis, a 63-53 winner over UC Riverside.

Ivy: Koren Schram scored 15 and Dartmouth held off Harvard 68-62 in a playoff game at New York. The Big Green will face Cornell on Sunday. Cornell won a coin pull to get the bye into the title game. The Ivy League is the only conference without a postseason tournament, forcing the need for a playoff to determine the automatic berth.

The sixth-seeded Aztecs will face No.  4 seed New Mexico in the title game today.

Jene Morris' shot was blocked out of bounds with 18.6 seconds remaining in the game and two seconds left on the shot clock. Davis brought the ball in and when Ross turned her back in the lane, Davis tossed the ball off her back, grabbed the ricochet and scored to put the Aztecs up.

Meanwhile, New Mexico beat Colorado State 65-41 as Dionne Marsh scored 19 for the Lobos.
