DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — No reason to cut down the net after Dayton clinched a conference title. These fourth-ranked Flyers have more big moments in mind as March approaches. Obi Toppin demonstrated his assortment of dunks while scoring 23 points with near-perfect shooting, and the Flyers wrapped up the Atlantic 10 regular-season crown Friday night by beating Davidson 82-67.
The Flyers got their 18th victory in a row with their best shooting performance in 34 years. Dayton (27-2, 16-0) shot 72.3% from the field, its best mark since 1986, and made all but one of its shots from inside the arc. Full Story
KINGSTON, R.I. (AP) — Obi Toppin’s whole family was there to celebrate his birthday with him: mom and dad, grandfather and grandmother, a pair of aunts and some godparents — all wearing shirts that were a mashup of the Dayton and Rhode Island logos
Dayton is back at UD Arena for Senior Night on Saturday as the Flyers face George Washington. Game time is 7 p.m. ET.
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Dayton coach Anthony Grant was unhappy with his team at halftime of Saturday's game against Duquesne, and he let them know it.

Led by their best player, Obi Toppin, and Jalen Crutcher — who scored all of his 17 points in the second half — Dayton shook off the dust and cruised to an 80-70 victory over the Dukes, the 16th win in a row for the Flyers. (Read the Full Story)
