It was not the first dunk of Crutcher's career, but it was his first dunk of the season. He led Dayton with 18 points in a 66-61 victory Tuesday at the Siegel Center.

“I just had my mind made up when Ibi threw me the ball,” Crutcher said.
Asked if it was his best dunk as a Flyer, Crutcher said, “I had one in practice. I ain’t going to tell you who I dunked on. I don’t want anybody to get mad. For sure, in the game, it was a best one.”
Dayton’s dunking star, Obi Toppin, didn’t have a dunk, so he still needs one dunk to break the school record for dunks in a season. He has 83 and leads the nation.
Toppin wasn’t surprised by Crutcher’s dunk.
“He does it a lot in practice,” Toppin said. “As soon as I saw him running the floor, I knew he was going to dunk. It was in his eyes. Everyone knew he was going to dunk.”
