NCAA.com: UD as 1 of 7 teams with a shot at their first national title this year

https://www.ncaa.com/news/basketball...-next-1st-time:

But this year, thanks to national player of the year candidate Obi Toppin, Dayton is potentially a top-5 team in the sport. The Flyers are 14-2, ranked No. 6 on kenpom.com, No. 9 in the NET and No. 15 in the AP poll.

Their only losses were to likely NCAA tournament teams Kansas and Colorado in overtime on neutral courts. So Dayton is maybe two bounces away from being 16-0 and potentially ranked No. 1 in the country.

So while earlier in this story we referenced the balance between a team's 2020 potential and its future outlook, it's hard to look past a Dayton team that could earn a protected seed in the NCAA tournament and potentially have the best player on the court in most potential tournament matchups in a season in which seemingly every historically prominent program has been vulnerable.

Who knows how sustainable Dayton's 2019-20 dominance is, but if the Flyers have even a six, eight, 10-percent chance of cutting down the nets in April by the time the 2020 NCAA tournament starts, it's hard to leave Dayton off this list, even if it's only for one season.
