Flyers End 3 Game Losing Streak

The Dayton Flyers snapped a 3 game losing streak Wedensday night at UD Arena by crushing the St Louis Billikens 63-36.

After playing the last 2 games without 2 key injured athletic forwards Charles Little and Chris Wright and getting blown out those 2 games on the road to cross-town rival Xavier 69-43 and losing to a second-rate Richmond team 80-63 last Saturday, the Flyers responded well Wednesday night by beating a sub-par St Louis team and giving me a little faith in them.

The last time the Flyers won before going on a 3 game losing steak was back on January 12th at St Louis 68-57 in overtime.

This was a get your confidence back win for fans and players as Andres Sandoval and London Warren stepped up and were leaders for the Flyers.   The win isn’t against a quality opponent, but it at least shows the Flyers can put away a mediocre team and still win without Charles Little and Chris Wright.  If Dayton didn’t win tonight, it would be marked as a bad loss in the RPI and I would start questioning going to the NCAA tournament and start thinking about the NIT tournament.

Dayton’s next game is at Rhode Island on Saturday.  I am predicting a loss by at least double digits.  Rhode Island is a good team, but everyone on the Flyers will have to step up and have great games Saturday to beat Rhode Island.
