As part of the annual Maui Invitational on Monday night, the 13th-ranked Gonzaga Bulldogs will take on the Dayton Flyers in a battle of two unbeaten teams early on in the season.
Gonzaga comes into the game with a 4-0 record and has taken care of their first few opponents with relative ease as they begin their quest for yet another WCC title. Guard Kevin Pangos has gotten off to a hot start this year, averaging just a shade over 18 points per game in the first couple outings.
Dayton is also unbeaten at 4-0, including a good out-of-conference victory in their last one over Georgia Tech of the ACC. Dayton coach Archie Miller is certainly hoping that this trip to Maui can bring a lot of good for the program.
“I hope it impacts us in a big way,” Dayton coach Archie Miller said. “This is a confidence builder.”
A win over a powerful program like Gonzaga on this trip would be a great way to start building that confidence.
