Plenty to be happy about tonight as the Flyers were slotted, rather safely, in the NCAA tournament. First and foremost, UD gets a matchup against Ohio State — a game that has many, many layers of intrigue for UD fans. I’d expect that OSU sweatshirts will only outnumber UD ones by around 4:1 on Thursday. School spirit, you guys.
Secondly, the A10 received six bids, second to only the Big 12 who have 7 teams in the field. Coach K and Chris Mack, eat your bitter hearts out.
Lastly, Xavier comes calling on Tuesday, facing off against NC State on Tuesday night. That’s a rather pleasant surprise for all the Dayton fans that bought First Four tickets months ago.
It should be a fun couple of days. More to come.
The biggest question heading into Thursday afternoon’s game — why does Archie Miller own beanbag chairs?
