Coming into the tournament Dayton felt like they should’ve been a higher seed, and they showed why tonight.  The first half of the game was fairly even with a tie score going into halftime.  Coming out of the locker room at halftime, Dayton started to get on a roll and within five minutes, the Flyers pulled away with a lead that Providence couldn’t overcome, holding on for a 66-53 win.

Impact Player

Dayton junior forward Dyshawn Pierre led the Flyers with 20 points and 8 rebounds.

Strange, Yet True

Dayton’s best player Jordan Sibert doesn’t shoot during practice and rarely touches a basketball until game day warm ups, due to a wrist injury that he sustained in December.

No. 11 Dayton will take on No. 3 Oklahoma in the round of 32.
