The defending National Invitation Tournament Champion Dayton Flyers will be able to defend their title as one of 32 teams selected to the 2011 NIT.

UD earned the #3 seed and will begin on the road to take on #6 seed College of Charleston tonight (Tuesday, March 15) beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

The game will be televised nationally on ESPN2.

Dayton enters the 2011 NIT as the #3 seed in its region, but goes on the road to Charleston, South Carolina due to UD Arena hosting the NCAA First Four. During last year’s NIT Championship run, the Flyers won at Cincinnati, at Illinois and in Madison Square garden against Ole Miss and North Carolina.

The College of Charleston, 24-10 overall, won the Southern Conference regular season championship. The Cougars led by 2011 SoCon Player of the Year, Andrew Goudelock.

The Southern Conference is Appalachian State, UT-Chattanooga, The Citadel, Davidson, Elon, Furman, Georgia Southern, Samford, North Carolina-Greensboro, Western Carolina and Wofford.

UD is attempting to be the third team to win the NIT Championship in back-to-back seasons.

The Flyers’ NIT history is rich with success. Last season was Dayton’s third NIT title. UD previously won the NIT in 1962 and 1968. Last year was also UD’s 22nd appearance in the postseason NIT.

The Dayton, Ohio school has been the runner-up five times and showcases a 40-20 all-time record. Head Coach Brian Gregory is 7-1 all-time in the NIT. Dayton’s 22 NIT appearances are second only to St. John’s 27 berths.

The Flyers reached the finals five times in the 1950′s and won the tournament in 1962 under coach Tom Blackburn and 1968 under coach Don Donoher.

Cincinnati Bearcats win at Oklahoma proves point to critics

The college basketball experts, or that is what they call themselves, were very critcal of the Cincinnati Bearcats basketball team eventhough they were 9-0 heading into their matchup at Oklahoma last weekend.

Their games were mostly blowouts against mid-major schools. The only teams that were good on their schedule were Dayton (9-3) and Wright State (7-5), two schools 50 miles up the road, north of their campus. UC beat Dayton on a night when the Flyers couldn’t buy a basket and they barely escaped a scrappy Wright State team.

The other opponents that they beat included, Carleton University, Indiana University-Southeast, Mount St. Mary’s, Indiana/Purdue-Ft. Wayne, Florida A&M, Savannah State, Toledo, Utah Valley and Georgia Southern. You can see why the critics were overlooking their 9-0 record.

The Bearcats went into Oklahoma City last Saturday and beat the Oklahoma Sooners in the 75th All-College Basketball Classic, 66-56 to win the championship trophy.

The Bearcats had passed their first test against a team from a major Conference. They showed Big 12 member Oklahoma and the 10,625 fans at Oklahoma City Arena that they are indeed a solid basketball team.

The Bearcats entered the game as one of only nine unbeaten teams left in the country and left it at 10-0.

UC led for most of the game but had to overcome several comeback attempts by the Sooners, who fall to 5-6. The last attempt by Oklahoma came near the end of the game when they cut a 12-point UC lead down to seven with 1:22 to go.

Cincinnati iced the game by sinking nine of 10 free throws in the final 1:06.

The Bearcats relied on their defense, holding Oklahoma to 33.3 percent shooting and their lowest shooting percentage of the season.

Yancy Gates scored 11 points and grabbed seven rebounds despite missing all but five minutes of the first half with foul trouble. But despite that, Gates was voted the game’s Most Valuable Player. He scored nine of his 11 points in crucial situations in the second half.
