Dayton Flyers are Flying Under Radar

Having a huge victory over the Gonzaga Bulldogs in The Maui Invitational, the Dayton Flyers look to continue to fly with momentum in the Atlantic-10 Conference.

Leading the Flyers, Jordan Sibert has potential to be one of the best shooters in the country. Sibert has leads his team in points at 14 points per game and shooting over 50 percent from three-point line. However, the three-point shooter is not the pro prospect that scouts look out when watching the Dayton Flyers.

The best pro prospect on the team—and perhaps in the conference — is Khari Price. Price is the slasher and dasher that teams love in a combination guard; he’s undersized to play the point guard in the NBA. At five-foot-eleven-inches tall, Price uses his speed and ball handling to set up teammates like Sibert for three-pointers, Dyshawn Pierre and Matt Kavanaugh. The point guard relies on his perimeter jumper as well as his speed and athleticism.

Price had to leave the game early after an injury and led to the Flyers to play badly on offense. Against the Delaware State Hornets, the Flyers managed to score 56 points while shooting 14 percent from three and 46 percent from the floor. Kavanaugh led the Flyers in points with 14 points.

The Atlantic-10 Conference currently has eight teams with over six wins; it’s one of the deepest conferences in the country. The only blemish thus far for the Flyers has been to the Baylor Bears in the Maui Invitational by one point — where they lead for most of the way until the last two minutes.

Flying under the radar is best for the Flyers as they look to be in a load of hurt on offense if Price cannot stay on the floor.
