Season begins Nov. 9 against Indiana State

The Dayton Flyers will play eight games at UD Arena and five games on neutral courts in the 2019-20 season. The non-conference schedule was released Tuesday.

It will be the first time in Dayton basketball history the team has not played a true road game in non-conference play. This will be the first time since the 2012-13 season Dayton won’t have a team from the power conferences playing at UD Arena.

The schedule includes four opponents Dayton has never played: Indiana State, Charleston Southern, Omaha and Houston Baptist. There are also two opponents Dayton played last season: Colorado and North Florida.
