Dayton Flyers and Ohio State Buckeyes Lose; Wright State Raiders Win

This Saturday the Wright State Raiders, Dayton Flyers, and Ohio State Buckeyes basketball teams all played on the same day, except only 1 of the 3 teams came out victorious.

The Wright State Raiders were the only team to win defeating Wisconsin – Milwaukee at home 53-51 on a Vaughn Duggins last second shot with 0.4 seconds left to give Wright State the win. Wright State is 66 in the RPI and on a 5 game winning streak with a tie for 3rd place in the Horizon League with a 14-6 (7-4) record.

The Dayton Flyers lost at Rhode Island 82-70.  Even with Charles Little making his first return from an injury only scoring 5 points and 3 rebounds in 19 minutes of play before fouling out, other players stepped up and were leaders for the Flyers with 5 players scoring in double figures including London Warren who had a double-double with career highs of 13 points and 10 rebounds.   However, the difference in the game was the Flyers poor 3 point shooting (2-of-15) compared to Rhode Island’s (11-of-26) shooting.  London started again and has seen more playing time and has really stepped up and been a leader.  Dayton is 13 in the RPI while struggling lately losing 4 of its last 5 games with a 15-5 (3-4) record.

The Buckeyes suprised me by losing at Iowa 53-48. The first time the Buckeyes played Iowa at home they blew them out by 31 points 79-48. This is a bad loss for the Buckeyes and it is the first bad loss of the season. Ohio State is 25 in the RPI and currently 5th in the Big 10 with a 15-7 (6-3) record.
