"To me it was a great team effort. And (we) showed a lot of resilience and a lot of character; what we like to call being Dayton Strong,” Grant said.

Rex Gardecki, former Flyer player and current analyst on WHIO Radio’s postgame show “Flyer Feedback” said the Flyers are aware of how this successful season could be an emotional uplift for this area.
“You can go back to when (senior forward) Trey Landers was in the Oregon District the night of the shooting. This group is so well molded together, and they understand each other and the senior leadership,” Gardecki told News Center 7’s John Bedell.
“I think that’s a big emphasis (Grant) has made throughout the season.”
Wright State’s men’s basketball team has also experienced a successful season on the court. The Raiders are 23-5 overall and lead the Horizon League with a 13-2 mark.
The Raiders could be on their way to representing the league in the NCAA Tournament in March. If the Raiders are able to make that happen, it would be first time both Dayton-area Division 1 teams would make the tournament in the same season.
