DAYTON — Plenty of Dayton Flyers fans spent the wee hours of Saturday morning reliving the 89-82 overtime victory at Davidson on Twitter or watching the game again on the DVR. One of the most improbable UD victories of the past four seasons — the Flyers overcame a 13-point deficit in the final eight minutes — was also one of the most thrilling because of the three overtime 3-pointers by Scoochie Smith.
Here’s a look back at the game via social media:

I thought that Flyers team was dead in the water with 11 minutes left, I'll admit it. Wow. What a comeback. What a Scoochie. What a team.— John Bedell (@JBedellWHIO) February 25, 2017

If you hold Scoochie Smith to no points in regulation, you better pray the game doesn't go to OT, cause he's regressing to the mean.— Mat Shelton-Eide (@MatSheltonEide) February 25, 2017

— NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is slated to attend the NFL's opening game on Thursday as the New England Patriots host the Kansas City Chiefs at Gillette Stadium. He may not get the warmest welcome from Pats fans.
Dave Portnoy, founder of Barstool Sports, is a native of Massachusetts. In a recent Barstool post, Portnoy said he had ordered towels that feature an illustration of Goodell as a clown. Portnoy had originally ordered 30,000 towels, but that number has grown to 70,000.
He is asking for volunteers to join him in distributing towels during tailgating festivities before the game.

DAYTON — Six weeks into his tenure as head coach of the Dayton Flyers, Anthony Grant stopped by WHIO Radio to talk to the voice of the Flyers, Larry Hansgen, on the Miami Valley Morning News.
Here are some highlights from the interview Wednesday morning:
• On putting the coaching staff together: “It has been hectic, but it’s been good. I’m really happy with the staff we’ve put together. We’re moving in the right direction in terms of finishing things out.”
• On associate head coach Anthony Solomon: “He’s a former head coach, a guy who’s been a lot of different places and has a lot of relationships. He’s very good on the floor.”
• On assistant coach James Kane: “He’s a guy I knew when I was at the University of Florida. He was a student there. Long story. We used to play a 3-on-3 challenge against the students. We were undefeated for a long time, and James’ team actually beat us. It’s the only time anyone beat us in my time there.
EXCLUSIVE: A sneak peak at UD Arena renovations
• On assistant coach Ricardo Greer: He played 14 years overseas, and actually in a week and a half, he’s going into the hall of fame in France for his playing career.”
• On special assistant Darren Hertz: “Darren has an important role for us in terms of analytics, breaking down our team and helping me to analyze what we’re doing offensively and defensively.”
• On new recruit Jalen Crutcher: “Once he saw this place and saw the resources we have here and the commitment on and off the court, academically, athletically, socially, I think he saw this will be a great fit for him.”
• On John Crosby returning to the team: “John, obviously, is a guy who has had kind of a rocky road a little bit, I think it would be fair to say, in terms of his production on the court. He’s a guy who really has a lot of pride in terms of wanting to do well and wanting to showcase what he’s capable of doing. I think he just wanted some reassurance that he would have an opportunity to compete and earn playing time and help the team. When you talk to his teammates, they all said great things about him in terms of who he is as a person. Once we worked all that out, in terms of his understanding the direction we were taking the program and his role in it, I think he felt very comfortable moving forward. He did a great job finishing out academically. We’re excited to have him back on the team.”

• On getting to know his new players: “My first order of business for them was to take care of the classroom, to make sure they finished strong academically. We really didn’t do much on the court. I was able the last couple of weeks, before they had preparation for finals, to get them on the court and just see where they’re at. This will be a big summer. Some of the guys will be here first summer session. Then we’ll have pretty much everybody here for the second summer session.”
• On two of the biggest influences on him, Don Donoher and Billy Donovan: “The common thread between those two guys is their understanding of what it takes to win, not only on the court but in life.
• On what his time as a player at UD meant to him: “I talked to the guys who just finished their careers here and about their passion for their place. This is a special place and will always be a special place for those who played here.”
