NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Randy Haynes had 24 points and Ahmad Caver added 18 as Old Dominion set a school record for fewest points allowed in a game as the Monarchs thrashed UTEP 82-33 on Saturday night.

Old Dominion shot 50 percent (32-64) from the field while limiting the Miners to 14-of-51 shooting (28 percent).
Marquis Godwin added 11 points and Trey Porter had nine points with seven rebounds for Old Dominion (21-5, 12-2) which has won five straight games to remain in second place behind league-leading Middle Tennessee in the Conference USA standings.
Paul Thomas had 10 points to lead UTEP (8-18, 3-11), which has lost seven of its last eight games.
