Gotta Love It

BEVERLY HILLS (MI) -- Gotta love the view from the summit, as the Dayton Flyers sit alone atop the A-10 standings at 5-1, thanks to tiebreakers with both LaSalle and Richmond. UD welcomes the Billikens on Sunday and then is back on the road at VCU and Fordham. Both are tough places to play (VCU lost to the Rams at Rose Hill) and the Red and Blue cannot afford the offensive lapses that have plagued them in their four losses.

-- When is the last time that UD played a Thursday night game followed by a Sunday afternoon tilt? No idea, but don’t really care as long as they are both on national TV like these two.

-- The big guy sitting behind the UD bench during the Spiders game was Sinclair CC Sophomore Akiean Frederick. As this video documents, the dude has some skills and best of all, he would be immediately eligible come this fall:

-- “The Sweet Tweet of the Week” is not an individual 140-character message but rather an ongoing series of tweets from one James Fridman who has mad Photoshop skills and basically does whatever folks ask him to do…literally:
