University of Dayton Flyers freshman center Alex Gavrilovic has been named Rookie of the Week in the Atlantic 10 Conference for his performance in leading the team to a 61-40 win over Florida International on Saturday.

Gavrilovic’s contribution to win #8 for Dayton was huge as the top four players on the team’s front court depth chart was limited or unable to play. The starting frontcourt for the Flyers frontcourt, Josh Benson, Matt Kavanaugh and Chris Johnson was limited to a total of 38 out of a possible 120 minutes due to foul trouble (Benson and Kavanaugh and injury (Johnson). In addition, senior Luke Fabrizius was not dressed out because of a rib injury.

Gavrilovic came off the bench to lead UD to its come-from-behind win. He returned to action after missing the last three games with a sprained ankle, and came through with career-highs in scoring (14), rebounding (6) and minutes (22).

Steve Wirkus

Will Bardo

The University of Dayton Flyers football team extended its winning streak to 10 games over two seasons as they pulled out a hard-fought 19-13 win at Moon Township, Pennsylvania beating Robert Morris College in the season opener for both teams.

That streak is the longest active streak in NCAA’s Football Championship Subdivision after FCS defending champion Eastern Washington lost at Washington 30-27 in its opening game.

Dayton’s defense made the difference in the game, forcing two turnovers and sacking Robert Morris quarterback Jeff Sinclair eight times. Seven different Dayton players were in on the sacks, led by Devon Langhorst’s 2.5.

Will Bardo, a redshirt freshman playing in his first game and first start ever, was 14 of 24 for 180 yards and two touchdowns.

Safety Steve Wirkus led the Flyer defensive unit with nine hits, including seven solo tackles. His acrobatic interception late in the first half set up UD’s go-ahead touchdown, and he also was responsible for batting down a pass at the goal line that prevented Robert Morris from scoring on its final possession of the third quarter.
