The tattoo on Randy Haynes' left arm says "No Fear". Seems like a motto as good as any at tournament time.
Haynes and his ODU teammates open up Conference USA Tournament play Thursday night at 9:30 EST in Frisco, TX.
The Monarchs are in a must win situation if they want to make the NCAA Tournament field. Their only chance would be to win three straight and get the automatic berth that comes with a C-USA Tournament championship.
The Monarchs come in as the #2 seed. They have a (24-6) record and won 8 of their last 9 games of the regular season.
