Davidson vs Dayton Match Preview

Third-ranked Dayton has won 17 straight games and an 18th, which could come Friday against visiting Davidson, will also bring with it the Atlantic 10 Conference title. The Flyers recorded their school-record 26th regular-season victory with a workmanlike 62-55 decision at George Mason on Tuesday and own a three-game lead on Rhode Island - Wednesday's opponent in the Ocean State - with three to play.

“I think anytime you can say you’ve got a chance to win the league, it’s a blessing, especially in a league like the A-10,'' Dayton junior guard Ibi Watson told the media. "We’re happy and excited about that, and we’ll keep working.” The Flyers, projected by ESPN to be a two seed in the NCAA Tournament, have lost only to No. 1 Kansas and No. 20 Colorado - both in overtime on a neutral court. “We’re excited,” Dayton coach Anthony Grant told reporters. “We’re always grateful. ... We know we have more opportunities that are available to us. We want to make sure we take advantage of those opportunities.” Davidson has won four of its last five games after a 74-49 victory over La Salle on Tuesday validated a 77-75 overtime win over Rhode Island on Feb. 22 - the only triumph by less than 25 points among the quartet.

The fans at University of Dayton Arena will be treated to a game between the Davidson Wildcats and the Dayton Flyers when they take their seats on Friday.

Oddsmakers opened the Flyers as -11-point favorites versus the Wildcats, while the game's total opened at 140.5.

Dayton was a 62-55 winner in their most recent outing on the road against Patriots. They failed to cover the -12-point spread as favorites.

Davidson was a 74-49 winner in its last match at home against Explorers. They covered the -11-point spread as favorites.

Dayton (#4) vs Davidson

ABOUT DAVIDSON (15-12, 9-6 A-10): Junior guard Kellan Grady has scored at least 20 points in his last three games after totaling 22 against La Salle, raising his team-leading average to 16.8, and has shot 54.1 percent from the field in his last seven contests. Senior guard Jon Axel Gudmundsson (14 points per game) paces the team with 7.3 rebounds and 4.6 assists but had only three boards Tuesday after collecting 34 over his previous three contests. Sophomore forward Nelson Boachie-Yiadom averages 2.4 points, but scored a career-high 11 in a 93-64 victory over St. Bonaventure on Feb. 14 and after a scoreless game recorded eight in each of the last two contests.

ABOUT DAYTON (26-2, 15-0): Watson's jump shot in the paint through traffic with 45 seconds left Tuesday gave the club a 59-55 lead and helped ease the pain of a slump that has brought him eight straight single-figure scoring games. "I thought (Watson) came out with great confidence in the second half," Grant told reporters. "He was able to see what was needed, and we needed a boost. The one he hit late was the biggest one of all. That was a big-time play." Sophomore forward and national player of the year candidate Obi Toppin recorded 19 points and seven rebounds against George Mason, making his season averages 19.7 and 7.7, but his 6-for-12 shooting from the field dropped him to 62.29 percent and out of the A-10 lead by .06 to St. Bonaventure's Osun Osunniyi.
