    Dayton 93 Omaha 68

    The Flyers (3-0) had little difficulty in handing Omaha (2-3) tonight in Dayton. Hitting 57/8% of their shots compared to 45.8% by the Mavericks was a big reason why. Leading the way for Dayton was, Obi Toppin (Brooklyn, NY) with 21 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assist. Ryan Mikesell (Saint Henry, OH) added 16 points, 4 rebounds and 2 assist. Ibi Watson (Pickerington, OH) came off of the bench to score 11 points. For Omaha, JT (Brooklyn Park, MN) led the way with 21 points, 4 rebounds and 3 assist.

    Obi Toppin is the real deal and I like what I'm seeing from a few other guys so far.

    Tough tests ahead for the Flyers with the Maui Classic looming on Monday. They start against Georgia with a game against either Michigan State or Virginia Tech in the next round.

    Long way to go to get to an A-10 title contender.

    Toppin is, undoubtedly, a player!

    Dayton still plays "dumb" basketball a lot, their defense is inconsistent, and I often have no idea exactly what Anthony Grant is doing. That said, the Flyers have a number of really good players (I like Crutcher and Chatman), and they should have really solid season, 24 or 25 wins seems likely.

    My worry is that it looks that way because he doesn't either.

    It was a safe hire of an alumnus when they made it and I worry they went for the safe choice and not the best one.
