Question of the Day
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - These Dayton Flyers do not come with an easy scouting report.
As the games get more important and intense, many coaches shorten their bench.
Not Miller. He said early in the year it was apparent the Flyers had about a dozen guys who could play and they all could be a star on a given night.
“Sacrifice is a part of winning, and you have to do whatever it takes to win,” Sibert said. “That’s one thing that we’ve all been able to come to an agreement on - whatever it takes to win.”
And the Flyers are winning a lot lately. They’ve already had a historic run, making the Elite Eight for the first time since 1984. Along the way they’ve knocked off in-state rival Ohio State, Syracuse and Stanford.
Now it’s time to face the formidable Gators. Florida has won 29 straight games - a streak that’s lasted nearly four months - and has a veteran starting lineup with few weaknesses.
“We’re going to have more than our hands full tomorrow,” Miller said.
Dayton might not be quite as talented as Florida, but the Flyers certainly have plenty of bodies to throw at that problem.
Freshman Kendall Pollard scored a season-high 12 points and sophomore Devon Scott made a couple clutch inside baskets in the second half to stave off the Cardinal’s final comeback attempt.
Even Alex Gavrilovic - who hadn’t played in seven straight games before Thursday - gave the Flyers four minutes when the team’s starters got into some foul trouble.
