What is your favorite memory of ODU
were so many great memories I had watching ODU sports. Some good
and some bad. However, my favorite memory was the 2005 CAA
Championship game against the VCU Rams at the Richmond Coliseum.
That is always the team I think about first when I think ODU
Basketball. You had the "Ausi" Alex Loughton, Valdus Vasylius, Drew
Williamson, Arnaud Dahi, Isaiah Hunter and so many other role
players. My brothers from Lambda Chi Alpha and I sat front row
every game that year and made the trip to Richmond to watch our
boys take VCWho to OT and cut down the nets. The most memorable

for the dunk and one. The place was electric. It was
Why do you support ODU athletics and its
the new generation of sports fans at Old Dominion. We have had the
privilege of watching championship programs at ODU play on national
television and compete for national titles. We have had the
privilege of watching ODU athletes at a collegiate level and to go
on and play professionally. These athletes have given me and
countless ODU fans unforgettable moments. They somehow become your
family. We are all connected. Like I mentioned earlier, it is a

I like the way
ODU has gone about expanding our campus. They do not cut any

Is there anything else you would like to tell us about
formally known as Jean Vest Guy back in the early to mid 2000's.
You would have had to of followed ODU men's basketball to know. I
still wish me and my crew could find our way to the front row of
the student section and give some lessons on how it is done. The
jean vest jacket is still safe to this day at an undisclosed
location. Finally, my wife Kendal (Class of '07) and I had an ODU
themed wedding in 2013. I was lucky enough to marry a fellow
diehard ODU fan. Go Monarchs!
