Coach Jeff Jones says it's going to take a collective effort. He is talking about a group of players stepping up this season score the 35 points per game that need to be replaced with Trey Freeman and Aaron Bacote's graduation.

Jones was speaking at the Conference USA media day. The Monarchs are predicted to finish 5th in the conference.

Last season, ODU finished with a 25-13 record and lost by 2 points in the conference championship game. They went on to win the inaugural Vegas 16 tournament at the end of the season.
