Dayton Flyers Top 10: Opponents and arenas

Published: Wednesday, November 08, 2017 @ 6:39 PM

WATCH: Dayton's new pregame introductions

To kick off coverage of the 2017-18 Dayton men’s basketball season, David Jablonski will publish a series of top 10 lists on various topics between now and the season opener on Nov. 10.

The Dayton Flyers will play one of the winningest programs in NCAA Division I history this season — and you probably won’t guess the team.

It’s the Penn Quakers, who rank 20th in victories (1,747) and 37th in winning percentage (.615). They visit UD Arena for the first time on Dec. 9.

Dayton and Penn played once before with the Flyers winning 71-60 in 1997 in the San Juan Shootout.

Dig deep enough into the Dayton men’s basketball media guide, and you can find many interesting facts about Dayton’s history with various opponents and at various arenas. Here are 10:

1. Top 10: Dayton is 60-104 against the 10 winningest teams of all time: Kentucky (2-3); Kansas (1-1); North Carolina (2-1); Duke (1-5); Temple (7-17); Syracuse (2-1); UCLA (0-4); Notre Dame (13-28); St. John’s (5-5); and Louisville (27-39).

2. Archie’s team: The winningest program Dayton has never played is Indiana, now coached by former UD coach Archie Miller. The Hoosiers rank 11th with 1,801 victories.

3. Shaka’s team: Another coach UD fans are familiar with coaches the 17th-winningest program in NCAA history. Dayton has never played Texas, which has 1,750 victories. Former Virginia Commonwealth coach Shaka Smart, who was Dayton’s director of basketball operations from 2001-03, coaches the Longhorns.

4. MAC’s best: The Flyers open the season Friday against a team from the Mid-American Conference, Ball State. The winningest program in MAC history is Akron, which ranks 50th in NCAA history with 1,577 victories. Akron plays at Dayton on Nov. 29. Dayton leads the all-time series 11-2.

5. Ohio history: Dayton could play the Ohio Bobcats in the second game of the Charleston Classic next week. The programs haven’t played since 1965.

That’s not the longest gap between meetings for Dayton and another Division I program from Ohio. Dayton hasn’t played Youngstown State since 1948.

UD HOOPS HISTORY: What you should know about the Flyers

Here are the other Ohio D-I programs and the year of their last meeting with Dayton: Miami (2015); Xavier (2015); Bowling Green (2014); Ohio State (2014); Akron (2010); Cincinnati (2010); Toledo (2009); Cleveland State (2008); Kent (1998); and Wright State (1997).

6. Ten left: Dayton has played in 40 states since the 1949-50 season. It has not played in these states: Connecticut; Delaware; Kansas; Maine; Montana; New Hampshire; North Dakota; Oregon; South Dakota; and Vermont.

7. Garden greats: Outside of UD Arena and the old UD Fieldhouse, Dayton has had the most success at Madison Square Garden. It is 40-24 in that areana, most recently winning two games in the 2010 NIT.

8. Bad memories: In what arena has Dayton had the worst luck? UD fans might guess it’s Xavier’s Cintas Center. The Flyers are 0-13 there.

However, Dayton is 0-17 at Notre Dame’s Joyce Center.

9. Early tourneys: Dayton will play in an in-season tournament in November for the 10th straight season. The last five years, it has finished 2-1.

10. Bronx home: Dayton has double-digit victories at one opposing Atlantic 10 arena. It is 10-3 at Fordham’s Rose Hill Gym.

Big 12 Power Rankings: Baylor keeps surging while Kansas, Texas Tech battle for supremacy

Published: Sunday, February 18, 2018 @ 2:16 PM

Big 12-Power Rankings-Basketball-Kansas-Texas Tech-Oklahoma-Baylor-conference

With two weeks left in the regular season, the Big 12 race is essentially down to a pair of teams currently tied atop the standings.

Kansas and Texas Tech, both with 10-4 records in conference action, have four games left to pull ahead for an outright title — including a Saturday matchup in Lubbock against one another.

Baylor has surged into the middle of the pack in the Big 12, while Oklahoma finds itself reeling. So let’s check out this week’s edition of the Big 12 Power Rankings:

1. Kansas

Record: 21-6, 10-4 Big 12

Last Week: def. Iowa State 83-77, def. West Virginia 77-69

This Week: vs. Oklahoma (Monday, 8 p.m. CT), @ Texas Tech (Saturday, 3 p.m. CT)

With the Jayhawks’ comeback victory over West Virginia, coupled with Texas Tech’s road loss to Baylor, Kansas now finds itself back in first place in the Big 12.

For the third time in a row, Kansas overcame a double-digit deficit to the Mountaineers on Saturday.

Kansas hosts a struggling Oklahoma team before its main card fight against the Red Raiders in Lubbock on Saturday.

2. Texas Tech

Record: 22-5, 10-4 Big 12

Last Week: def. Oklahoma 88-78, loss to Baylor 59-57

This Week: @ Oklahoma State (Wednesday, 6 p.m. CT), vs. Kansas (Saturday, 3 p.m. CT)

While Texas Tech lost its one-game lead over Kansas in the conference standings, its bigger concern is the health of Keenan Evans.

The star guard injured his toe against Baylor, and his status is uncertain for now.

Luckily for the Red Raiders, they get some extra rest before a Wednesday tilt in Stillwater against Oklahoma State — a team that’s just 1-5 over its last six midweek games. If Evans misses Texas Tech’s bout with the Cowboys, that’s manageable.

What could be unmanageable is losing Evans for any extended period of time, including Saturday’s showdown with the Jayhawks.

 

3. West Virginia

Record: 19-8, 8-6 Big 12

Last Week: def. TCU 82-66, loss to Kansas 77-69

This Week: @ Baylor (Tuesday, 6 p.m. CT), vs. Iowa State (Saturday, 5 p.m. CT)

For the third time in a row on Saturday, West Virginia had a double-digit lead over Kansas before eventually taking a loss in the final decision.

Bob Huggins was ejected with seven seconds left in the game before telling reporters in the postgame press conference that he was upset with the officiating ― Kansas shot 35 free throws to West Virginia’s two.

Huggins may be fined or even suspended for a game or two this week as a result of his comments, warranted or not. Potentially missing a trip to Waco, where the Mountaineers face a red-hot Baylor team, doesn’t bode well for WVU’s hopes of improving its seeding in the NCAA Tournament.

4. Kansas State

Record: 19-8, 8-6 Big 12

Last Week: def. Oklahoma State 82-72, def. Iowa State 78-66

This Week: vs. Texas (Wednesday, 8 p.m. CT), @ Oklahoma (Saturday, 5 p.m. CT)

With four games left in the regular season conference slate, K-State just needs to go .500 to assure itself a winning record in Big 12 play and 21 wins before the conference tournament.

While Chris Beard’s job at Texas Tech has arguably been the best of any coach in the nation, Bruce Weber’s Wildcats have steadily taken care of business through much of the league year.

Kansas State gets a home tilt with an unsteady Texas squad before travelling to Norman to face Oklahoma, which it beat in Manhattan earlier this season.

5. Baylor

Record: 17-10, 7-7 Big 12

Last Week: def. Texas 74-73, def. Texas Tech 59-57

This Week: vs. West Virginia (Tuesday, 6 p.m. CT), @ TCU (Saturday, 11 a.m. CT)

No team in the Big 12 is playing better than Baylor right now.

The Bears’ five-game winning streak is the longest in the conference by three games and features wins over Kansas and Texas Tech at home and a road win over Texas.

Baylor was on the precipice of being completely left out of NCAA Tournament conversation. But with their winning streak, the Bears are now solidly on the bubble with opportunities to solidify their resume.

6. Texas

Record: 16-11, 6-8 Big 12

Last Week: loss to Baylor 74-73, def. Oklahoma 77-66

This Week: @ Kansas State (Wednesday, 8 p.m. CT), vs. Oklahoma State (Saturday, 1 p.m. CT)

The last two victories for the Longhorns have both been against Oklahoma.

Sandwiched between those two wins is a three-game losing streak to Kansas State, TCU and Baylor.

Texas is now squarely on the bubble after hovering around the 8-9 seed range for much of the Big 12 season. A trip to Manhattan will be tough but doable on Wednesday night.

Saturday’s home matchup against Oklahoma State feels like a must-win for the Longhorns.

7. Oklahoma

Record: 16-10, 6-8 Big 12

Last Week: loss to Texas Tech 88-78, loss to Texas 77-66

This Week: @ Kansas (Monday, 8 p.m. CT), vs. Kansas State (Saturday, 5 p.m. CT)

So…is Oklahoma on the bubble now?

The Sooners have lost five straight games and now have a worse Big 12 record than half the conference.

Non-conference wins over USC and Wichita State buoy the Sooners’ resume for now. But another 0-2 week — very possible with a trip to Allen Fieldhouse coupled with a matchup against K-State — could be a recipe for panic in Norman.

In Monday’s showdown with the Jayhawks, Oklahoma will be looking for its first win at “The Phog” since 1993. Billy Tubbs roamed the sidelines for the Sooners back then.

8. TCU

Record: 18-9, 6-8 Big 12

Last Week: loss to West Virginia 82-66, def. Oklahoma State 90-70

This Week: @ Iowa State (Wednesday, 7 p.m. CT), vs. Baylor (Saturday, 11 a.m. CT)

While TCU has undoubtedly struggled in Big 12 play since the loss of Jaylen Fisher, the Horned Frogs got a much-needed win with a 20-point rout of Oklahoma State on Saturday.

The Horned Frogs are deep inside of the bubble looking out, but still on the bubble all the same. TCU is primed for an opportunistic yet dangerous week.

First is a trip to Ames on Wednesday, where Iowa State has wins over Baylor, Oklahoma, West Virginia and Texas Tech. The week ends with a home matchup against Baylor, the hottest team in the Big 12.

9. Oklahoma State

Record: 15-12, 5-9 Big 12

Last Week: loss to Kansas State 82-72, loss to TCU 90-70

This Week: vs. Texas Tech (Wednesday, 6 p.m. CT), @ Texas (Saturday, 1 p.m. CT)

An 0-2 week for the Cowboys has put their NCAA Tournament prospects entirely into two paths forward:

  1. Win out the regular season plus a game or two in the Big 12 Tournament
  2. Win the Big 12 Tournament for an automatic bid

Oklahoma State’s streak of five-straight Saturday wins over Big 12 teams ended with a 20-point blowout to TCU. It doesn’t get any easier for the Cowboys, who host conference-leading Texas Tech and travel to face a feisty Texas squad.

10. Iowa State

Record: 13-13, 4-10 Big 12

Last Week: loss to Kansas 83-77, loss to Kansas State 78-66

This Week: vs. TCU (Wednesday, 7 p.m. CT), @ West Virginia (Saturday, 5 p.m. CT)

Hilton Magic gave way to the Sunflower State last week as the Cyclones dropped games to Kansas and Kansas State.

The 0-2 week puts Iowa State in the same boat, or even worse, as Oklahoma State. The Cyclones essentially have to win out or win the Big 12 Tournament to have any hopes of an NCAA Tournament bid.

This stat shows Duke’s Grayson Allen is the ultimate iron man

Published: Sunday, February 18, 2018 @ 1:51 PM

With Marvin Bagley III sidelined with a knee sprain, Grayson Allen has had to carry a heavier load for the Duke Blue Devils.

Allen has perked up lately after a tough shooting stretch – he scored 17 points in the first half of Duke’s win over Clemson on Sunday. But he’s also been extremely durable for the Blue Devils.

This stat says it all:

Allen played 40 minutes against the Tigers and is averaging 34.1 on the year. Surprisingly, the latter isn’t a career high; he played 36.6 minutes per night as a sophomore.

But this is worth keeping an eye on moving forward. Allen only scored 2 points in the second half against Clemson. We’ll see if the lack of rest takes a toll on him later in the year.
