NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — B.J. Stith poured in a career-high 36 points to go with 10 rebounds and Xavier Green added 17 points as Old Dominion blew out UTSA 100-62 on Thursday night.

The win marked the Monarchs' (20-5, 11-2 Conference-USA) eighth in their last nine games, as they will maintain at least a share of second place in the conference.

Old Dominion raced out to a big lead immediately, going on 23-9 run to start it, with Stith hitting three 3-pointers and scoring 13. After the Roadrunners (14-12, 7-6) hit two 3-pointers to cut the lead within eight, the Monarchs rode a 14-3 run to a 52-36 halftime lead.

The Monarchs quickly shut the door on any UTSA comeback hopes by opening the second half on a 16-3 run to push their lead to 29. Marquise Godwin's 3-pointer with 1:24 put the Monarchs over the century mark, the first time they have reached that milestone this season.

Jhivvan Jackson scored 22 points with five 3-pointers and Deon Lyle added 18 points with five 3s for the Roadrunners.
