CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Accentuate the positive.
Easier said than done, sure, but Charlotte coach Mark Price is gradually finding ways to do so. Admittedly, Price’s team struggled to contain Old Dominion redshirt senior Trey Freeman – he hit the final shot of regulation to send the game to overtime, among many others – but Price is seeing some light at the end of the tunnel.
“I was proud of our guys. We bounced out of it, snapped out of it,” said Price of his team’s struggles and their eventual bouncing back from a slow first half. “We just didn’t have any answers for him (Freeman) tonight. He was unbelievable.”
Freeman’s 38 points paced the visiting Monarchs, leading Old Dominion to a 74-69, overtime victory over Charlotte at Halton Arena on Saturday night.
