Gotta Start Someplace

BEVERLY HILLS (MI) – Last year's University of Dayton men's basketball team rebounded from a disastrous 1-3 start to win the ESPN Events Invitational, defeating Miami, eventual national champ Kansas and Belmont in the process. As we are all too aware, there will be no such holiday tournament turnaround this year, as the Red and Chapel Blue dropped all three ball games in the Bahamas. One look at the remaining schedule and the opportunities for a marquee victory are few and far between–save one–Wednesday’s roadie at Virginia Tech.

VA Tech is currently #35 in the Ken Pom rankings. No other game comes close to providing a meaningful resume building win. Altho at this point, who the heck are we kidding? There is no ‘resume’ to be built–the Flyers are gonna have to win the Atlantic 10 Tournament in order to punch their ticket to the Big Dance. Still, a V vs. VT is a good place to start.

Elsewhere in Flyerland:
