Dayton to open A-10 schedule at Duquesne

  • Story Highlights
  • Dayton has won or shared last two A-10 titles.

The Dayton Flyers will open Atlantic 10 Conference play at Duquesne on Dec. 30, the conference announced Wednesday. It’s the second time in three seasons UD has played its A-10 opener on the road in Pittsburgh.

UD will then host St. Bonaventure on Jan. 3 in its home opener.

Among the other highlights of the A-10 schedule:

• UD’s Senior Night will be a Senior Day. It will play George Washington at 12:30 p.m. on March 3 in the regular-season finale.

• New UD coach Anthony Grant will coach his first game at VCU, where he started his head coaching career, on Feb. 10. VCU plays at UD on Jan. 12.

• Probably the toughest part of the schedule for the Flyers is a three-game stretch that starts with a road game at Richmond, the home game against VCU and a road game at Saint Joseph’s.

• Dayton plays two games on Friday, three on Tuesdays, five on Wednesdays and eight on Saturdays.

• Dayton plays six games on the CBS Sports Network. Its home game against VCU will be televised on ESPN2, as will its road game at Rhode Island on Feb. 23.
