The Dayton Flyers will face the Stanford Cardinal in the Sweet Sixteen of the 2014 NCAA tournament. Both teams have committed major upsets to get to this point, but Dayton’s have been far more impressive. Here are five reasons why Dayton will survive the Sweet Sixteen.
Stanford isn’t Syracuse. The Cardinal are a good team, but Syracuse was a legitimate national championship threat.
The Atlantic 10 was a more difficult conference than the PAC-12. Say what you want about mid-majors, but Arizona is the only real talent from the PAC-12 when looking at non-conference schedules.
The Flyers share the ball and understand their role for the team. They only have one player averaging double-digits this season and yet they keep on winning.
This team just wants to win. They see a team’s talent and expectations and simply outplay them. Sometimes the team that wins has to want it more.
Archie Miller hasn’t received a lot of credit for the Flyers’ success so far, but he’s coached his guys to the next level. Miller will be able to get his team ready to face Stanford and, with a week to prepare, should lead his team to victory.
