Dayton Flyers Men’s Basketball ends season Ranked #3 Nationally after best season in school history at 29-2

 

 

Flyers Match School’s Best-Ever Final Ranking

 

DAYTON – The University of Dayton men’s basketball team finished the 2019-20 season ranked third in the nation in the final polls.  The Flyers were third behind Kansas and Gonzaga in both the Associated Press poll and the USA Today Coaches poll.

Kansas, Gonzaga, UD, Florida State and Baylor made up the top five in both polls.  Florida State was fourth according to the AP, and Baylor was fourth in the USA Today Coaches poll.  In the AP poll, Dayton received one first-place vote, as did Gonzaga.  Kansas received the other 63 first-place votes,.

The Flyers went 29-2 this year, setting UD’s record for wins in a season despite not having the benefit of post-season play.  Both of UD’s losses were in overtime on neutral courts to teams expected to be in the NCAA tournament field – No. 1-ranked Kansas and Colorado.

The No. 3 ranking equals the best final ranking in school history.  Dayton was also third at the end of the 1955-56 season, when the Flyers went 25-4 and reached the championship game of the NIT.  Dayton was ranked behind Bill Russell-led San Francisco (who was ranked first wire-to-wire) and North Carolina State 64 years ago.
