University of Dayton Flyers Athletics Discussion

Recommended Posts

^Not surprised by the result.  Dayton played very poorly over the last month of the season and it continued in the tournament game.  I was surprised they were seeded as high as they were given their lackluster performances of late.

UD names new men's basketball coach

 

The University of Dayton has named a men's basketball coach to replace Archie Miller.

 

The school announced Thursday it has hired Anthony Grant for the position. Grant was recently on the staff of the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder and has also spent nine seasons as head coach at the University of Alabama and Virginia Commonwealth University, with another 13 years as an assistant coach.

If you haven't been following the Dayton Flyers in the Maui Invitational this week, you should have.

 

Dayton topped Georgia by 19 on Monday and topped Virginia Tech by 27 on Tuesday.  Then they took #4 ranked Kansas to OT before the Jayhawks won today.  But although the Flyers fell just short of the Maui Invitational title, their leading scorer - sophomore 6'-9" forward Obi Toppin - won the night with a step back three and a stare down of the Kansas bench, while the ball was still in the air(!)

 

During the ESPN broadcast, the announcers said Obi Toppin is a projected first-round pick in the next NBA draft (currently ranked 24th).

The #13-ranked 9-1 Flyers faced the 9-2 Colorado Buffaloes last night in the Chicago Classic.  Colorado won it with a buzzer-beating 3 to edge Dayton 78-76 in OT.

 

Both of Dayton's losses have been in overtime - first to #4 Kansas and now to a Colorado team that might be ranked in the Top 25 next week.

 

This week's #13 ranking for Dayton is the highest they've been ranked since December 1968 - when they were 6th in the AP.

The 20-2 Flyers moved up one spot in this week's AP poll to #6.

 

This ties their AP ranking from December 1968.

Dayton climbed from #6 to #5 in the AP poll today.  Apparently it's still less then the program’s highest ranking of #2 in 1956.

 

But still...

Flyers continue winning - now 25-2.

 

#1 Baylor, #2 Gonzaga and previously undefeated San Diego State at #4 all lost on Saturday.  #3 Kansas beat Baylor and took over the #1 spot.  Baylor, Gonzaga and San Diego State all slide down one spot.  And Dayton moves up to #4:

Previous #2 Baylor got upset last week and Dayton keeps winning.  So the Flyers are a-movin on up to #3:

Dayton finished the regular season 29-2 and with an 18-0 conference record in the A10.  They are off until the A10 conference tournament starts for them on Friday.

 

The Flyers are still #3 in the AP - but they were #1 in ESPN Sportscenter's Top 10 with this Obi Toppin between-the-legs dunk during Saturday's win over GW:

Time for the legislature and governor to quite wasting time on this Corona crap and do something meaningful and declare the Flyers National Champions for 2020. Have a parade, raise a banner, riot in the Ghetto. It will be grand
