Dayton saw its two-game win streak snapped and dropped 14-6 overall and 4-2 in the conference. The Flyers also lost at Saint Joseph’s for the sixth consecutive time.

In fact, the Hawks scored 50 points in the second half and shot 70 percent from the field going 21-of-30. The 70 percent field goal percentage from floor was a season high allowed by the Flyer defense.

Offensively in the game, Dayton shot 35 percent from the field but went 7-for-27 from beyond the arc. Meanwhile, Saint Joseph’s had only five turnovers and shot 53 percent from the field.
UD led 32-27 at the half thanks in part to Johnson’s 12 points. It was a season high in the first half for Johnson as the Flyers shot just 33 percent from the field, but out-rebounded SJU 27-14.
On the glass, the Flyers lost for only the second time this season when out-rebounding their opponent.
Other contributors for Dayton included Josh Parker with eight points and three rebounds, Ralph Hill with seven points and Matt Kavanaugh with six points and three boards.

Dayton uses Gruden’s pep talk to dominate arch-rival Xavier

(Dayton’s Kevin Dillard talks about win over Xavier)


Most people who follow sports do not realize that Jon Gruden, the Super Bowl-winning coach is a graduate of the University of Dayton.

Gruden, who most people say looks like the movie doll “Chuckie”, was quarterback for the Dayton Flyers football team in the 1980′s and led the team to a couple of Stagg Bowls.

He is a proud alumnus and watches the Flyers basketball team on ESPN when he can.

He was instrumental in Dayton’s 87-72 win over the Xavier Musketeers on Saturday afternoon at UD Arena.

Gruden, wearing his old Dayton football lettermen’s jacket, was asked by basketball head coach Archie Miller to talk to the players at an 8 a.m. film session and give them a pep talk. He told the players to “go out, play hard and share the ball.” The players listened and were grateful that Gruden came back to talk to the team.

Before a sellout crowd of 13, 435, the Flyers did everything Gruden told them as they blasted the Musketeers.

Junior Matt Kavanaugh scored 20 points while hauling down 9 rebounds, and junior point guard Kevin Dillard, who was selected the Blackburn/McCafferty Trophy, which goes to the game’s MVP, had 16 points and nine assists as the Dayton took control of first place in the Atlantic 10 Conference.

Overall, UD is 14-5, 4-1 while Xavier falls to 13-6, 4-2. The other A-10 top teams have at least two losses.

The Flyers worked the ball around the perimeter in the half-court offense and were able to score at will from 3-point land, getting second and third chances on the offensive rebounds and just basically outhustled the more-publicized Musketeers.

Dayton built up an 18-point lead in the 2nd half, and Xavier could not get it under 11 the rest of the game.

The Flyers frustrated Xavier stars Tu Holloway and Mark Lyons all game and it showed. They missed open shots and layups and could not score at will in previous matchups. Holloway scored 21 and Lyons 20, but most of those points came after the game had long been decided. They were the only Musketeers in double figures scoring.

On the other hand, the Flyers had four players in double figures to support Kavanaugh and Dillard. Josh Parker added 16 and Paul Williams scored 13. Dayton also dominated the paint eventhough Xavier has 7-footer Kenny Frease, scoring 28 points and the bench play went to the Flyers, who are deeper, 27-16.

It was obvious that Xavier head coach Chris Mack was upset with his team’s intensity from the game’s outset. The Muskies did not come out at halftime until there was only 2:49 left on the clock.

The next matchup will come in February on the 18th at the Cintas Center where Dayton has never won and has had some nightmarish games. Maybe this might be the year to sweep Xavier.

Flyers ruin Grant’s return to alma mater; dump Alabama 74-62

DAYTON, Ohio – Senior Chris Johnson scored a season-high 20 points and senior Josh Parker added a season-high 17 points to lead the University of Dayton in an upset of No. 16/15 Alabama 74-62 Wednesday night at UD Arena in front of a crowd of 13,102.

The game saw the return to Dayton by Alabama head coach Anthony Grant, who played for legendary Flyers coach Don Donoher from 1983-1987. The 45-year-old Grant has also been a head coach at Virginia Commonwealth. He received a warm welcome and standing ovation when recognized by the public address announcer during the introduction of the Crimson Tide starting lineup prior to tip-off.

Junior Kevin Dillard chipped in 14 points, six assists and a career- and game-high eight rebounds for Dayton. Redshirt junior Josh Benson was the fourth Flyer to score in double figures with 11 points.

The Flyers improve to 6-3 overall, while the Tide are now 7-2, losing their second consecutive game after falling 57-55 to Georgetown on Dec. 1.

Prior to defeating the nationally-ranked Tide on Wednesday, the Flyers’ last win against a ranked opponent was No. 14 Xavier, 71-58, on Feb. 11, 2009 at UD Arena. Dayton has now won nine of their last 10 games against BCS opponents and is 15-5 in the last five seasons against BCS foes.

Alabama scored the first basket of the night and led 6-4 with 17:13 to play, but Johnson’s jumper with 16:54 to play evened the score and Matt Kavanaugh’s free throws at 15:46 put the Flyers up for good. In fact, UD went up by as much as 16 in the first half, 38-22, after a Johnson three-pointer at the 2:07 mark.

The Tide closed out the half with a 5-0 run, but Dayton led 38-27 at the break. The Flyers shot 64 percent with Parker leading the way on 5-of-6 from the field, including 2-of-3 from beyond the arc for a team-high 12 points at the half. Benson was also automatic, knocking down 4-of-5 field goal attempts.

The Crimson Tide shot just 39.3 percent in the first period. Tony Mitchell paced Alabama with 12 at the half. UD and Alabama were even in three major categories at the break: rebounds (13), turnovers (6) and assists (8).

Dayton’s largest lead of the game was by 17 points after a Benson jumper gave the Flyers a 46-29 lead with 17:33 left in the game.

Alabama got within four points (57-53) with 7:42 to play, but the Flyers hit 4-of-5 from behind the arc down the stretch to pull away, including back-to-back treys by Dillard to boost Dayton’s lead back to double digits.

Dillard knocked down 3-of-4 free throws to give Dayton a 15-point lead, 74-59, with 41 seconds to go.

The Flyers are only the third team to put up 60+ points against the Crimson Tide this season.

The Dayton Flyers defeated the Minnesota Golden Gophers 86-70 to capture the 2011 Old Spice Classic championship in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, which is in the Orlando area.

Five Flyers scored in double figures led by the Old Spice Most Valuable Player, Kevin Dillard. Dillard scored 19 points, 10 assists and career-highs with seven steals and three blocks.

Josh Parker put in 12 points and Luke Fabrizius scored 11 as the Flyers won their fourth in a row and improved to a 5-1 overall record.

The Old Spice Classic is Dayton’s 12th in-season tournament title. UD has won three of the last five it has participated in and is the first since taking the 2008 Chicago Invitational Challenge.

The Flyers improved to 14-5 against BCS programs over the previous five years and has won eight of the last nine.

In the program’s history, Dayton had never beaten a Big Ten team by double-figures prior to the game against Minnesota. It was their first win against a Big Ten team since winning at Illinois during a run to the 2010 NIT crown. This was their first regular-season win over a Big Ten school since knocking off Purdue in 2001-02 at Conseco Fieldhouse.

Dayton led at the half 37-28, using a 25-5 run to the first 20 minutes.

The Flyers led by as many as 18 points in the second half.
