THE NEARLY-TRANSFORMED UD ARENA

The University of Dayton is past the halfway point of a $72 million renovation of its Arena. The transformation of University of Dayton Arena will occur in three phases – from 2017 to 2019.

Phase II included new entrances on three of the four sides, a new box office, new seats in the 300 and 400 levels on the east side and a new and expanded concourse on the east side.

 

#TRENDING

•        Josh Cunningham’s free throw with 2.2 seconds left lifted Dayton to a 74-73 win at Davidson on Tuesday, snapping the Wildcats’ 17-game home court winning streak.

•        Obi Toppin is third in the nation in field goal percentage, behind Gonzaga’s Brandon Clarke and Duke’s Zion Willliamson.  Toppin is shooting .673 (153-226) for the year.

•        Toppin’s 65 dunks are two away from the UD single-season record set by Chris Wright in 2009-10.  The 65 dunks are also third in D-I this season, eight behind Daniel Gafford of Arkansas, and one behind Texas’ Jaxon Hayes.

•        Cunningham is 12th in FG% (.628, 130-207).   No other team has two in the top 20, and only one other (Gonzaga) has 2 in the top 25.

•        Dayton is fourth in the NCAA (behind Gonzaga, Tennessee and South Dakota State) and leads the Atlantic 10 in FG% (.502, 721-1436).  UD shot .633 (31-49) at Rhode Island.

•        The Flyers have found themselves behind 10 points or more and battled back to take a lead in seven games this year.  The have come back from double-digit second-half deficits to win three times (at GW, at SBU and Duquesne at home) this year.

•        Jalen Crutcher is second in the A-10 in assists (5.7). He is only one of two players in the A-10’s top ten in assists, assist-to-turnover ratio (2.3), 3-pt. FG per game (8th, 2.2),  and minutes (8th, 36.1).  Richmond’s Jacob Gilyard is the other.

•        The Flyers matched last year’s win total (14) before Feb. 1.

•        The Final Five Dayton’s home games have been declared sellouts.  That gives the Flyers eight for the season, tying the UD Arena record, set in the Arena’s first year (1969-70).

 

UP NEXT

•        The Flyers play at UMass Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. ET.

•        Dayton’s next game at home is Friday, March 1 against Rhode Island at 7 p.m. ET.
