NORFOLK, Va. (AP) Justin Johnson and Darius Thompson combined for 49 points and 9 of Western Kentucky's 10 3-pointers as the Hilltoppers defeated Old Dominion 75-68 Thursday night in a clash of Conference USA unbeatens.

Old Dominion (12-4, 3-1), after falling behind by as many as 11, was able to close to 68-62 when B.J. Stith canned a 3-pointer with 1:57 remaining but the Monarchs missed three of their last four shots.
