How to watch Wichita State vs. Dayton

How to watch Wichita State vs. Dayton”

Smith, Pollard, Charles Cooke, Kyle Davis and Jeremiah Bonsu finish their Flyer careers as the all-time winningest class in Dayton Basketball history with 102 victories.

That's exactly what the people will get after the Wildcats disposed of a feisty Northern Kentucky team, 79-70, on Friday in their first-round South Region matchup. McDonald said that when he locked eyes with his father in the stands, his dad gave him a thumbs-up, and that "put in a tear in my eye", he said. "They are not going to back down, just like we're not".

While the Flyers overwhelmed Wichita State defensively - hardly allowing the Shockers room to breathe, let alone get a clean look - Scoochie Smith went to work offensively. "That could do big things for the team".

Wichita State prediction and game preview, as the No. 2 Wildcats and No. 10 Shockers face off in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. "There's a lot of quality basketball being played at some of these places". Kentucky is a 3.5-point favorite, according to Las Vegas oddsmakers. Much had been made about the size different and how big United Kingdom was compared to NKU, but that proved to be a minimal factor in this game.

It was just the second loss this year when UD led at the half. Murray shot 2 for 9 from outside, and McDonald was just 3 for 9. He averages 13.3 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.5 blocks.

The inside game was different in the second half and the Norse found more luck there.

They're coming into the tournament as an underdog versus the Atlantic-10 champion, and 7th seed, Dayton Flyers (24-7). Seton Hall held a one-point lead with 1:45 to play but was held scoreless the rest of the way as the Razorbacks pulled ahead and sank key free throws. Seven players marked the scoreboard in the first half, with Brown, Shamet and Kelly leading the way with five points each.

Maybe we'll see some Madness today. The three words that I talked about were verve, vigor and vitality.

But there wasn't enough time for a full comeback.

Kentucky ruined WSU's bid for an undefeated national title in the 2014 NCAA tourney round of 32. Coach Greg Marshall's Shockers play great D and shoot the 3, but it's hard to ignore the fact that they are 0-3 against BPI top-50 teams.

"I don't think we've ever approached a seed in our lives", he said.

The optimistic departure from the court may be motivated by a team already looking to the future. "Obviously we now become more of the hunted". Dayton, also very well coached by Archie Miller, is a tough team from a tough league and they've made deep tournament runs in the recent past. "The bottom line is, it doesn't matter how you get there".
