NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -Keyon Carter scored 14 points and Frank Hassell grabbed a career-high 14 rebounds as Old Dominion overcame a horrible start at the free throw line to defeat Hofstra 57-46 on Saturday.

They improved in the second half, however, making 11 of 19, including 4-for-4 during a 10-2 run that gave Old Dominion a 48-38 lead with 7:36 remaining after the Pride (9-8, 2-3) had pulled within 38-36.
Hofstra didn't get nearly as many free throw opportunities, going 6-for-10 for the game.
Neither team shot particularly well from the field, Hofstra making 35.8 percent (19-for-53) to Old Dominion's 33.3 percent (20-for-60).
Charles Jenkins scored 18 points to lead Hofstra.
