Ron's review: Colorado
The Score: Colorado Buffaloes (2-0, 0-0 P12) 67, Dayton Flyers (1-1, 0-0 A10) 57.
Series Details: The Flyers and the Buffaloes played their third game Thursday and Colorado now holds a 2-1 advantage.
The Skinny: The Flyers played with the Buffaloes until they buffaloed the Flyers in their final run. The Flyers will now play a tough Boston College team at 2:30 PM on Friday.
The Flyers and Buffaloes: The Dayton Flyers played the Colorado Buffaloes tough for about three quarters of the game, but the final run by Colorado went unanswered. Dayton cannot expect to win when they shoot 32.8% from the field. Colorado, on the other hand, shot 46.7%. Dayton faces a Boston College team that will give the Flyers a very tough time.
The Last game of the evening was Murray State against Auburn. Murray State is an extreme pressure defensive team and I don't think the Flyers will have an answer for that defense in just under a month at the UD Arena. Dayton has many things to correct and it's not all doom and gloom, but time for the players to work together and concentrate on high percentage shooting.
Advantages & Disadvantages: Too early.
What the Flyers Need for a Win: My basic ingredients for a win will change very little as the season progresses and one can see whom the Flyer Faithful can depend on for the score.
How Ron did: Ron predicted the Flyers would start things off right with a win over the Buffaloes 77-75. The Flyer offense struggled and the Flyers end up in the loser bracket.
