UD announced Tuesday the second game of the season at 7 p.m. Saturday against Charleston Southern has sold out. It will be the 132nd sellout since the arena opened in 1969.

The opener last weekend against Indiana State also sold out. A crowd of 13,407 watched the Flyers hang on to beat the Sycamores 86-81.

This is the first time in UD Arena history Dayton has sold out two regular-season games in November. Two years ago, in November, it sold out an exhibition game against Ohio Dominican and then the home opener against Ball State.
