Norfolk, VA (Sports Network) - Marcus Thornton buried 7-of-13 3-pointers en route to a game-high 32 points, as the William & Mary Tribe defeated the Old Dominion Monarchs, 74-62, in a Colonial Athletic Association matchup at the Constant Center.

Thornton also converted 11-of-12 free throws, while Brandon Britt chipped in with 18 points for the Tribe (11-14, 5-9 CAA).

Aaron Bacote had 20 points to lead the Monarchs (3-23, 1-13), who lost for the 13th time in their last 14 outings. DeShawn Painter recorded a double-double with 16 points and 10 rebounds, although he committed seven of ODU's 15 turnovers for the game.

The Tribe jumped out to a 12-point lead on a 3-pointer by Julian Boatner at the 7:25 mark of the first half, capping a 16-4 spurt. However, ODU answered right back with a 15-4 run, and the half eventually ended with W&M leading, 39-34.
