NORFOLK, Va. (AP) Ahmad Caver scored 21 points with eight assists and Old Dominion snapped Morgan State's three-game win streak with a 76-53 victory on Saturday.

Caver was 9 of 15 from the field for the Monarchs (10-3). Marquis Godwin added 15 points, Xavier Green had 11 points and seven rebounds and Aaron Carver had 10 points and a career-high 20 rebounds.

Old Dominion shot 45 percent from the field compared to 28 percent for Morgan State and had a 48-31 rebounding edge.
