What had been rumored for the past three months, came true on Wednesday.

Butler University of Indianapolis, the benchmark school of the Horizon League, will be leaving to go to the Atlantic 10 Conference beginning in the 2013-14 season.

The announcement was made by Butler president James Danko during a news conference.

The move will reunite Butler with Dayton and Xavier, who used to be members of the predecessor of the Horizon League, the Midwestern Collegiate Conference.

Butler replaces Temple in basketball. Temple will join the Big East in all sports other than football in 2013-14. Temple’s football team will begin competition in the Big East this fall.

There are not too many college basketball teams who can claim stake to having won a basketball game at the Cintas Center in Cincinnati. Even the Dayton Flyers, Xavier’s chief arch-rival, who plays there every year, has never won at the Cintas Center.

It is the home of the Xavier Musketeers.

The Oral Roberts University Golden Eagles can say they won in the 11-year-old building.

Dominique Morrison scored 19 points to lead ORU over previously unbeaten Xavier, 64-42. The Musketeers had no rhythm in their play because they were missing three of its starters who were suspended.

The Golden Eagles (8-4) are a very experienced team starting three seniors and two juniors.

The 8-1 Musketeers were without star point guard Tu Holloway, shooting guard Mark Lyons and freshman forward Dez Wells who are the team’s top scorers. The trio were suspended for their part in a brawl eight days ago against the Cincinnati Bearcats.

Xavier University hands down basketball suspensions

 

CINCINNATI — Xavier University Associate Vice President and Athletic Director Mike Bobinski announced today that four XU men’s basketball student-athletes will serve suspensions as a result of their parts in yesterday’s incidents at the Crosstown Shootout. Bobinski made the announcement on behalf of Xavier and the Atlantic 10 Conference.

Freshman Dezmine Wells, who had a mandatory one game suspension for being ejected from the game for fighting, has been given an additional three games by Xavier and will serve a four-game suspension. Sophomore Landen Amos has also been given a four-game suspension. Junior Mark Lyons will serve a two-game suspension. Senior Tu Holloway will serve a one-game suspension.

“I have been working closely with Atlantic 10 Conference Commissioner Bernadette McGlade and the A-10 staff since yesterday afternoon,” said Bobinski. “We have all thoroughly reviewed the video evidence from a variety of sources. The Atlantic 10 fully supports our decisions on the suspensions announced today.

“We accept full responsibility for our part in the events that occurred at the end of our game yesterday. It was both embarrassing and disappointing and clearly did not reflect the standards of behavior we expect from our student-athletes. We resolve to do whatever is necessary to prevent an incident like this from occurring in the future. Additionally, we regret the poorly-chosen words our student-athletes used in the post-game press conference and have addressed the matter with them.”

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.
