Dayton Flyers Basketball Schedule

Each year during the college basketball season big things happen in Dayton, Ohio as UD Arena is home not only to the Dayton Flyers but also the first round of the NCAA Tournament, previously known as play-in games. UD Arena really comes to life when the Dayton Flyers take the court, especially when they go up against all of their biggest Atlantic 10 rivals. Last season the Flyers finished ties for fourth in the A-10 and earned an NCAA Tournament berth. They had a stunning run in the Tournament which included a big win over Stanford in the Sweet Sixteen before falling to top-ranked Florida in the Elite Eight. This year the Flyers are returning Jordan Sibert, their leading scorer form last season, along with several other key players who contributed to their amazing Tournament run at the end of last season and should be able to not only duplicate, but improve upon last season's success.

This year the Dayton Flyers will once again be taking on all of the top teams in the Atlantic 10 including the St. Louis Billikens, the UMass Minuteman, the Virginia Commonwealth Rams, the Saint Joseph's Hawks, the George Washington Colonials, and more. It is never easy battling through the daunting A-10 schedule, even for the conference's elite teams like Dayton, but the Flyers have a strong team this season which is still riding high on the confidence they gained from their Tournament run in March and they should be able to accomplish some big things this year. Every die hard Dayton Flyers fan will want to be inside UD Arena to cheer on the Flyers as they look to make the 2014-2015 season a memorable one. Tickets to see the Flyers playing at UD Arena always sell out quickly so be sure to get your tickets to see Dayton playing at home from StubHub as soon as possible.


Dayton Flyers Basketball History

The history of Dayton Flyers basketball dates all the way back to 1903 when the university was known as St. Mary's Institute. It was not until 1920 that the university changed its name to the University of Dayton and changed its nickname from the Saints to the Flyers. Dayton got its first real taste of success in 1962 under head coach Tom Blackburn who guided the team to an NIT championship. From then on Dayton was well known as a team to be feared in NCAA basketball and they are now recognized one of the top 50 winningest programs in the sport. The Flyers have played in the NCAA Tournament 15 times, most recently in 2014 when they made it all the way to the Elite Eight. In fact, that was the third time the university has made it to the Elite Eight and the 1967 team made it all the way to the National Championship Game, finishing as runners-up. Big things are expected for the Flyers this season and you will want to be along for the ride right from the start.


Dayton Flyers Basketball Conference

The Dayton Flyers are members of the Atlantic 10 which has long been one of the truly great conferences in the country. The A-10 had often been underrated by those not very familiar with college basketball but with its addition of some new great teams in recent years it has become a conference that is impossible to overlook. There are fourteen universities who participate in Atlantic 10 basketball: St. Louis, Virginia Commonwealth, George Washington, Saint Joseph's, Massachusetts, La Salle, Dayton, Richmond, Duquesne, St. Bonaventure, Rhode Island, George Mason, Davidson, and Fordham. There are several classic rivalries within the conference including the cross-town rivalry between La Salle and Saint Joe's who are both former Big 5 members, the in-state rivalry between VCU and Richmond, and the "Battle of the Rams" between Rhode Island and Fordham. With the recent additions of teams like Davidson, Virginia Commonwealth, and Saint Louis look for new rivalries to develop within the conference as these teams continually to face off against one another several times a year during A-10 play. If you are looking to see some top notch college basketball action, the Atlantic 10 is the place to be. As the conference continues to grow and gain more and more national attention, every team in the conference will improve and not only make a mark on the conference but the national college hoops landscape.


The Experience

Attending a top college basketball game is one of the best experiences to be found in sports. Many of the top student athletes in the world take the court in college basketball, when this is combined with some of the most passionate fans in all of sports there is an atmosphere in the arena that cannot be found anywhere else. When you set foot in UD Arena for a Dayton Flyers home basketball game this will all be clear. As the teams set up for opening jump ball the fans get on their feet and loudly cheer for their alma mater and hometown favorites. The game continues full of end to end action, big time shots, and clutch defensive stops. All of a sudden the clock is winding down in the second half and the two sides are wrapped up in yet another tight contest. Your palms get sweaty with each trip down the floor and each time a player from your favorite team lets loose a shot you hold your breath until the ball tickles the twine. This continues until the final buzzer when the Dukes' side erupts after another big win and their fans exit of the arena in jubilation. The moment you leave UD Arena you will want to immediately start planning your next trip to the venue to cheer on the Flyers.


Trivia

Jim O'Brien coached the Dayton Flyers to their first ever conference championship in the 1989-1990 season when they went 10-4 in conference and had a 22-10 overall record. The team was invited to the NCAA Tournament and won their first game before getting knocked out in the second round. Several former Dayton Flyers have gone on to successful NBA careers, most notably Roger Brown who averaged over 17 points per game while playing in the NBA.
