The University of Dayton Flyers will be losing two players who were key parts of this year’s team and were being counted on for the future.

Head coach Brian Gregory has announced that freshman guards Juwan Staten and Brandon Spearman are transferring from the program.

“We appreciate Juwan and Brandon’s efforts this season and wish them good luck in their academic and athletic futures,” Gregory said.

Staten, a 6-foot point guard, averaged 8.5 points and 5.4 assists in 35 games (34 starts) in 2010-11. The Dayton native, a graduate of Oak Hill Academy, was a member of the Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team.

Spearman averaged 2.5 points and 1.2 rebounds in 10.9 minutes of play this year. The 6-foot-3 Chicago Simeon High School graduate played in all 36 games with two starts.

Dayton was 22-14 in 2010-11, and lost to an NCAA Sweet 16 team the Richmond Spiders in the A-10 championship game. UD reached the post-season for the fourth straight year by earning an at-large bid to the NIT.

The ninth-seeded Dayton Flyers run in the Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament was not expected. But the team showed they belong in the post season.

The Flyers fell short in the championship game to the third-seeded Richmond Spiders, 67-54 in Atlantic City, New Jersey.

Columbus, Ohio native Chris Johnson had 11 points and six rebounds for Dayton.

The Flyers tournament run with wins over Massachusetts, #18 Xavier and St. Joseph’s allowed them to be selected to return to the National Invitation Tournament.

Chris Wright and Johnson were named to the 2011 A-10 All-Tournament team.

Dayton is now 1-2 in A-10 Championship games and struggled from the outside hitting 3-of-14 shots from beyond the 3-point arc. The Flyers shot 38 percent from the field against the top defense in the conference.

The Flyers fall to 22-13.

For the first time ever, the Richmond Spiders defeated the Dayton Flyers at UD Arena, 70-61 Tuesday night.

Chris Wright scored 22 points for the Flyers, but the team just could not stop the Spiders.

Dayton only had one lead in the game with 17 minutes to go in the second half, 37-35.

Richmond, is 5-1 in the Atlantic 10 Conference, while Dayton falls to 3-3.

The Flyers are 15-6 overall, the Spiders 16-5.

Staten, who did not start and was a game-time decision to even play after being very sick overnight into game day, played 21 minutes while pulling down three rebounds. The Dayton native passed Negele Knight (1985-86) on the all-time freshman assists list.
