    Dayton is undefeated in league play and is 25-2 overall. For the year their average margin of victory is over 15 points. In short, they have been dominant.

    Dayton is led by National Player of the Year Candidate Obi Toppin who averages 19.7 ppg and 7.7 rebounds per game. Jalen Crutcher (15.0 ppg), Trey Landers (10.9 ppg), and Ibi Watson (10.2 ppg) round out a very balanced line-up.

    This will be the lone meeting against Dayton for the year unless we meet again in the tournament. Not betting on that.

    DP is 2-2 against Dayton as a member of the A10. Soon to be 2-3.

    My prediction: I am excited to see some really good basketball Tuesday night…….from Dayton. This game will be over after the first 10 minutes. The Flyers will cruise to a 45-3 halftime lead. Their starters will be pulled with 15 minutes to go in the 2nd half. Walk-ons from the Dayton fan base will suit up with 6 minutes to go allowing us to make a furious comeback. Final score Dayton 95 - GMU 50. It’s going to be ugly. Men vs toddlers. Prove me wrong.

    Hopefully a nice crowd comes out. How often does a top five team come to Fairfax?

    92 might be a bit much. 58 might be too.

    How about 76-49. Dayton calls off the dogs.

    Maybe mason will win. Maybe gmu has a Tug McGraw in the locker room just waiting for his “You Gotta Believe!!” moment.

    The highest ranked team ever to face Mason at the Patriot Center/EBA was #6 Georgetown in December 1985.

    San Diego State just lost by 3 at home against UNLV. Likely Dayton moves up to #4.

    UNLV is now 15-14 overall, but middle of the pack in the Mountain West at now 10-6. They were 18 pt underdogs tonight with a 6% chance of winning.

    Kenpom has us as 13 pt underdogs with a 13% chance of winning. So we have more than twice as much chance of beating UD as UNLV had to beat SDSU!!!!!

    Looks like Gonzaga is going to go down as well... but I doubt they drop much... probably to #3. They were ranked #2 tonight

    Do you think Coach Dave sat out Oduro for much of the St. Joe's game to rest him before he goes up against Obi? I hope so. Josh is going to need all he's got. Who knows, could be good? The matchup is Freshman vs. Sophomore. Hey, "Frumpy PoorManProfit" — what's your take?

    You still celebrating homecoming ? Oduro will be as far away from Obi as possible. Paulsen smarter than. That

    I just hope you doesn't put AJ on him, because we can't afford for him to get into foul trouble in the first half. Calixte and Odouro can use all of their 10 combined fouls for all I care.

    Maybe dress the walk-on 7 footer just in case we need 5 more fouls?
