The Dayton Flyers men’s basketball team opened up their pre-season with a 92-78 win over the Walsh University Cavaliers in an exhibition game at UD Arena.

The Flyer fans had a chance to see the new uptempo offense that the team will be using under new head coach Archie Miller. The results of the new brand of basketball were excellent. UD used great ball movement to shoot 53 percent (31-58) from the field and 48 percent (11-23) from behind the 3-point arc.

Walsh is located in North Canton, Ohio, has a student enrollment of 2,500, a catholic school which was established in 1960. The school is known as being the first coaching job for current West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins.

Redshirt junior Josh Benson led Dayton with 23 points and eight rebounds. Redshirt junior Kevin Dillard scored 16 points and went 8-for-9 at the charity stripe for UD. Senior Luke Fabrizius chipped in with 12 points and senior Chris Johnson from Columbus Brookhaven put up 10 points.

The Flyers rattled the Cavaliers all night, forcing 16 turnovers which led to 26 points for Dayton.

UD open the game with a red-hot hand from the floor, going on a 7-0 run and converting on its first five shots. At one point the Flyers led 41-22 in the first half and 53-37 at intermission.

Dayton never trailed in the game, despite a strong shooting performance from Kenny Kornowski who was 10-of-16 scoring 30 points.

Nine Flyers saw at least 14 minutes of action with Dillard leading the way with 29 minutes and Johnson playing 28.

The Flyers bench outscored the Walsh bench 30-5 with Fabrizius leading the Dayton subs with 12 points.

Dayton Flyers to upgrade football schedule in order to reach playoffs

The Dayton Flyers have always wanted a shot at the schools like Robert Morris and Duquesne, which are a part of the maximum-scholarship Football Championship Subdivision programs that compete for national titles, thinking that they can play a close game and possibly pull off an upset.

In 2010, the Flyers split with two teams from the scholarship Northeast Conference, beating Robert Morris but losing 35-31 at Duquesne.

Robert Morris was in the playoffs last year, winning the NEC’s automatic bid. If the Flyers had beaten Duquesne, they wouldn’t been in the top 20 and the playoffs would’ve been a reality.

Next year, UD will open against Illinois State and in 2013 they’ll open against Youngstown State, both games being on the road.

In those games, Dayton will be out-scholarshipped 63-0.

From 2012 and moving forward, the Flyers are committed to playing scholarship teams from the FCS (formerly Division I-AA) for their three non-conference games in an attempt to get to the postseason playoffs.

The criteria for teams from the non-scholarship Pioneer Football League to earn an at-large berth to the playoffs are to beat two FCS teams that give full rides, win their conference and finish in the Top 20 in the national poll.

In 2010, Dayton missed the top 20 by just a few points at 25th.

In the future, the FCS playoffs will be expanded from 20 to 22 or 24 teams.

UD’s Wirkus named Pioneer Football League Defensive Player of the Week

Dayton Flyers redshirt senior safety Steve Wirkus is having a good season after three games and he was rewarded for it by the Pioneer Football League. Especially for his performance this past weekend.

Wirkus has been named the PFL Defensive Player of the Week for his role in Dayton’s 24-10 league opening win over Marist on Saturday.

Wirkus intercepted two passes, batted down two more and was in on six tackles (four solo). His big plays came at critical times in the game. His first pass deflection on a third down in the second quarter forced Marist to settle for a field goal which opened the scoring in the game. His second interception was on the Red Foxes’ first offensive play of the second half, setting up Dayton’s third touchdown that made it a two-score game. And he knocked down a pass on 4th-and -4 at the Dayton 18-yard-line, ending Marist’s final scoring threat of the game late in the third quarter.

The Flyers edged Marist in last season’s finale to win their 11th PFL title in the 18 years since the league began.

Wirkus, a Brecksville-Broadview Heights High School graduate, has had an interception in every game and leads FCS football in picks per game (4). The first-year starter also leads Dayton in tackles (23), solo hits (14) and passes batted away (3, tied with Howard Savage).

This Saturday, Wirkus will lead the Flyers on a short trip to Wilberforce, Ohio to play the Central State Marauders. Game time at McPherson Stadium is 1:30 p.m. ET.
