NORFOLK, Va. (AP) -- Calvin Newell scored 17 points and Keith Clanton had 15 to lead Central Florida to a 75-71 victory over Old Dominion on Friday night.

Aaron Bacote led the Monarchs (1-9) with 19 points, Donte Hill had 14 and DeShawn Painter 13.

Old Dominion made more field goals (25-24) and 3-pointers (9-8) than Central Florida, but the Golden Knights outscored the Monarchs from the foul line 19-12.
