The Shenandoah Hornet men are still looking for their first ODAC win after being drubbed 117-60 last night at nationally-ranked Randolph Macon. The number-18 Yellow Jackets played a near-perfect first half on the way to a 68-25 halftime lead, as they improved to 14-2 overall, and 6-1 in the league. Chris Chaney had 14 to lead the Hornets, who travel to Ferrum Saturday for an 2pm tip.
The SU women will travel to Virginia Wesleyan for an ODAC game tonight.

Ninth-ranked Virginia Tech held off Georgia Tech 52-49,
And WVU blew a 21-point lead and lost to Kansas State 71-69.
The Washington Wizards, routed the night before at Philadelphia, returned the favor last night in DC, spanking the 76ers 123-106. Bradley Beal and Otto Porter, Jr. combined for 57 points to lead Washington.
And, the Capitals are on the ice tonight at Boston. Air time is 6:45 on Sports Radio 1450.
