» THE TOURNAMENT: Dayton alums believe they can get it done
NBCSports.com picked Dayton third, and that seems to be the most popular spot for the Flyers. In a story about the whole conference, Rob Dauster wrote of the Flyers, "On paper, Dayton is right there with Davidson and VCU. They lose Josh Cunningham, but with the rest of their rotation – including a bonafide pro in Obi Toppin – returning and four sit-out transfers entering the fold, there is more than enough talent, depth and experience on the roster. The reason I have them a notch below the favorites is because I want to see how all the pieces come together. They can certainly win the league, but managing minutes and egos is going to be the toughest part of Anthony Grant's job this season."
