NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- Tiffany Green scored 12 points to lead Old Dominion (No. 12 ESPN/USA Today, No.10 AP) to its 18th straight win with a 66-51 victory over Drexel on Sunday.

Megan Pym and T.J. Jordan added 10 points each for the Lady Monarchs (24-3, 15-0 Colonial Athletic Association).

Gabriela Marginean scored 20 points to lead Drexel (15-11, 10-5). She is just five points short of 1,000 for her career.

The Dragons closed within five twice in the second half, but could get no closer as Jordan hit a pair of 3-pointers to keep Old Dominion ahead.

Jordan hit three 3-pointers to tie the CAA record for career 3s. She matched Julie Jones, who hit 309 3-pointers for Richmond.

Drexel senior Narissa Suber hit her 300th 3-pointer, becoming just the third player in conference history to achieve that mark.
