Norfolk, VA (Sports Network) - Cedrick Lindsay scored 19 points to lead the Richmond Spiders to a win over the in-state rival Old Dominion Monarchs, 80-53, at the Ted Constant Convocation Center.

Nick Wright led the way for the Monarchs (1-7) with 16 points. DeShawn Painter added eight points and 10 rebounds.
Richmond took control early on, jumping out to an 11-point lead midway through the first half. The Spiders led 38-19 at the break in large part because ODU shot just 18.8 percent from the field. Richmond also dominated the Monarchs in the paint, outscoring ODU 18-8 from inside.
ODU started making shots in the second half and shot 46.6 percent but turnovers and an inability to stop Richmond did the Monarchs in. The Spiders scored 15 points off of turnovers in the second half compared to two for Old Dominion.
Despite the loss, ODU still leads the all-time series, 29-24.
