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.

The Duke Blue Devils are back in a familiar position, #1 in the Associated Press men’s college basketball poll for the first time in five weeks.

The 25-2 Blue Devils moved up from fifth to #1 after a  week of basketball games which saw all four of the top teams lose.

Ohio State, despite losing to Purdue, stays at #2.

The only change and surprise at the bottom of the poll is that St. John’s at 17-9, which has beaten a Top-10 team for the fourth time this season with a win over Pittsburgh on Saturday, moved to #23.

The Red Storm was last ranked in the polls in November 2000. They have improved dramatically under new coach Steve Lavin and his assistant Gene Keady.
