DAYTON - The University of Dayton women’s basketball team opens the 2020 Atlantic 10 Championship Quarterfinals Friday at 11 a.m. against No. 9 seed Richmond at UD Arena.

Dayton enters the tournament as the top seed and earned a first round bye. The Flyers finished the regular season with a 22-8 record overall and a 15-1 A-10 mark. UD is 11-2 at home this year and on a two-game winning streak.

Head coach Shauna Green is in her fourth season in charge of the Flyers and already has two tournament and one regular season conference titles, as well as being the former A-10 Coach of the Year in 2018.

As a team, the Flyers are scoring 64.5 points each outing and holding opposing teams to 57.5 points. Dayton is shooting 38.4 percent overall, 32.6 percent from three, and 71.1 percent from the free throw line. UD has a +3.5 rebounding margin and +1.8 turnover margin.

Dayton is led by senior Jayla Scaife with 13.0 points and 5.6 rebounds per game, and is coming off a week in which she averaged 21 points and 11 boards. Redshirt junior Erin Whalen is contributing 12.5 points as well while hitting 58 threes this season.

Richmond comes to Dayton as the No. 9 seed in the tournament with a 15-16 record on the season after going 7-9 in league play this year. The Spiders are 8-8 in away games this season.

Head coach Aaron Roussell is in his first season at Richmond, but boasts over 300 wins in 16 years of coaching.

This season, Richmond is averaging 61.0 points per game and giving up 62.8 points to opponents. The Spiders are shooting 39.2 percent from the field, 32.0 percent from behind the arc, and 68.5 percent from the charity stripe. Richmond faces negative rebounding and turnover margins as well.

Leading the Spiders is Jaide Hinds-Clarke with 11.5 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. Claire Holt is chipping in 11.0 points while Kate Klimkiewicz is adding 10.0 points each game.

Dayton finished the regular season with a 78-66 win on the road at Saint Louis Saturday to finish with a 15-1 conference mark. Jayla Scaife had a season-high 27 points to go with nine boards.

Richmond advanced to the A-10 Quarterfinals after upsetting No. 8 seed George Washington Tuesday on the road, 57-49. Kate Klimkiewicz powerd the Spiders with 15 points, going 6-of-9 from the field.

Dayton and Richmond have met 26 times previously with the Flyers winning 16 times, including the last 13 contests. Earlier this season, the Flyers went to Richmond and earned a 65-61 victory over the Spiders. Three players scored in double digits for Dayton.

The Flyers rank 26th in the nation in scoring defense and 42nd in field goal percentage defense. Individually, Shakeela Fowler ranks 31st in the country in free throw percentage.

With the win over St. Bonaventure on Wednesday, Feb. 26, Dayton clinched the 2020 Atlantic 10 regular season title outright. The Flyers also earned the No. 1 seed in this year’s A-10 Championship.

In Coach Green’s four year tenure at UD, the Flyers are 28-2 in the month of January including perfect marks in 2016-17, 2017-18, and this season as well.

Dayton defeated La Salle on Jan. 4, 2020 in the A-10 opener 98-58, the first 40-point win for the Flyers since defeating La Salle on Feb. 22, 2015, 91-49, at home. Dayton scored 94+ points in two of three straight games.

Dayton created one of the hardest non-conference schedules in program history, taking on three nationally ranked teams in the first seven games, and facing numerous 2019 NCAA Tournament participants. The Flyers have already played No. 6 South Carolina, No. 4 UConn, No. 21 Gonzaga, three-peat MAC Champions Central Michigan, and former NCAA participants Northeastern, Auburn, and Maine.

Dayton has won 114 of its last 140 regular season Atlantic 10 games (.812), a streak that dates back to a 97-46 win over Rhode Island on Jan. 7, 2012, and includes a perfect 14-0 mark in conference play during the 2012-13 season.

On Dec. 5, 2019, the Flyers played in front of 10,554 fans at UD Arena while hosting Morehead State. The record-breaking crowd was due to the overwhelming success of UD’s annual School Day game, a chance for local school-aged children to take a field trip with the Flyers. It was the fourth largest crowd for a NCAA women’s game this year and biggest in program history. With a home attendance average of 3,019, Dayton ranks 45th currently out of 351 Division I programs and leads the A-10.

Dayton head coach Shauna Green earned her 100th career win with a 59-55 victory over George Mason on Jan. 8, 2020 at UD Arena. With a previous coaching stint at Loras College, Green has amassed over 70 wins at UD alone.

The Flyers have made 12-consecutive postseason appearances between the NCAA Division I Tournament and the Women’s National Invitational Tournament. Here are the past 12 campaigns

Dayton has hit at least one three-point shot in 599 consecutive games dating back to Jan. 2, 2001, the longest streak in the Atlantic 10 Conference and one of the top streaks in the nation. The Flyers made a program-record 15 three-point field goals against Buffalo in the Connecticut World Vision Classic on Nov. 25, 2011. Dayton tied the record with 15 vs. Wright State on Nov. 28, 2012.

Dayton was picked to finish second in the Atlantic 10 preseason poll behind conference favorites and reigning A-10 Champions VCU. The Flyers were tabbed to finish ahead of Fordham (2019 A-10 Tournament Champions) and Saint Louis.

The Atlantic 10 released its preseason all-conference teams and recognized senior Jayla Scaife as First Team All-Conference and All-Defensive Team. She was the lone Flyer honored preseason.

Since the 2009-10 season, Dayton is 169-20 (.898) when scoring 70 or more points, including 11-1 in 2016-17. During the 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons, the Flyers only lost one game per season when scoring at least 70 points, and dropped only two games in 2009-10 when reaching that mark.

University of Dayton’s Neil Sullivan named 2019-20 Under Armour AD of the Year

Sullivan Will Be Recognized Tuesday, June 9 At NACDA’s 55th Annual Convention At The Mandalay Bay Resort In Las Vegas


CLEVELAND – The National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) announced its winners of the Under Armour AD of the Year Award (ADOY) today. University of Dayton Vice President/Director of Athletics Neil Sullivan is a 2019-20 honoree.

The award spans seven divisions (NCAA FBS, FCS, Division I-AAA, II, III, NAIA/Other Four-Year Institutions and Junior College/Community Colleges).

Neil Sullivan

The ADOY Award highlights the efforts of athletics directors at all levels for their commitment and positive contributions to student-athletes, campuses, and their surrounding communities.

Sullivan will be recognized Tuesday, June 9 prior to the featured session at 4 p.m. during NACDA’s 55th Annual Convention at the Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas.

“The future of our industry continues to look bright with athletics leaders like these at the helm of departments across the country,” said Bob Vecchione, NACDA Chief Executive Officer. ”Out of our 28 ADOY winners, 22 are receiving this honor for the first time in their careers. It is exciting and inspiring to see the new faces coming up through the ranks and earning well-deserved recognition for their efforts on their campuses.”

Sullivan was named the University of Dayton’s vice president/director of athletics Sept. 25, 2015 when he was 34 years old.

As the University’s top athletics administrator, he’s made major impacts, including orchestrating the $75 million UD Arena renovation, the Klesse Soccer Complex, the Olsen Athletics Performance Center, the Kacie Hausfeld Volleyball Court, and Hidalgo Team Lounge.

He is the sports program administrator for UD men’s basketball, currently ranked No. 3 in the AP Top 25. This year, Dayton and Gonzaga are the only two schools whose men’s and women’s basketball programs have clinched regular season championships in their respective conferences (Atlantic 10 and West Coast).

While setting milestones in several sports, the University’s student-athletes have also performed well in the classroom. Dayton student-athletes’ combined cumulative grade point average has risen to a school-record of 3.368.

Sullivan has also worked closely with NCAA and Atlantic 10 officials. Sullivan managed the University’s bid for the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship, which secured the First Four for the University of Dayton Arena through 2022. He has also managed the media rights for all sports related to the A-10 conference.

In 2015, Sullivan was named to the Dayton Business Journal’s Forty Under 40. In 2017, Sullivan was named to the Regional Advisory Committee for NCAA FCS Football’s Central Region.

Under Armour is now in its 12th year of sponsoring the award and over 276 different athletics directors have been honored with the award during that time.

“The Athletics Director of the Year Award acknowledges the leadership and positive influence top athletics directors have had at their respective institutions across all levels,” said Brian Cummings, Under Armour’s vice president of North America sports marketing. “Under Armour is proud to partner with NACDA to honor those individuals who set the standard in guiding their student-athletes through the on-going journey to be better.”

Nominators were NACDA-member directors of athletics, institutional presidents and conference commissioners, as well as other respected intercollegiate athletics administrators. Special Divisional Selection Committees composed of current and former directors of athletics, current and former commissioners and other key athletics administrators voted on nominees for the award. A complete listing of Selection Committee members can be found on NACDA’s website at
