March Madness: Who will handle win better? UD or Wichita State

As the University of Dayton Flyers and Wichita State Shockers prepare to face off on Friday, many crucial questions remain, but possibly the most important – which school handles a win better?

UD is known for its celebrations. Back in 2014, then-president Dan Curran was seen crowd-surfing after the Flyers upset victory over the Syracuse Orangemen.

So, would UD have the better victory party or would Wichita State?

Niche, a website that reports on data from communities, ranked UD as the fourth best party school in Ohio. The website gave UD an “A+” rating for its party scene and an “A-” for access to bars.

The same website ranked Wichita State the 10th top party school in Kansas. The school was given a “B-” for its overall party scene but it was given an “A-” rating for access to bars.

UD was also ranked second in the 2017 Princeton Review for “lots of beer,” while Wichita State was left off the 20-school list entirely.
