Location: Armpit of Ohio...Dayton.
Record: 26-7 (11-5)
Leading Scorers: Chris Wright (12.9 ppg), Marcus Johnson (12.2 ppg)
What to know:
- Dayton has gone 2-1 versus top 25 teams this season, one of which came against the red hot Marquette Golden Eagle early in the season.
- When playing in their own gym the Fly guys are 18-0, when stepping outside of their comfort zone they are only 8-7. Had they reserved a spot in the play-in game (in Dayton) maybe they would have been better off.
Projected Performance: Dayton will most likely have a brief appearance as an eleven seed in 2009. We don't see them being able to battle the mediocre of the Big East, West Virginia Mountaineers.
