On Thursday night, the Dayton Flyers showed up with their best game in the 2014 NCAA Tournament once again, and because of that, they were able to walk away with the rather easy win over the Stanford Cardinal. Now, for the first time in 30 years, Dayton is headed to the Elite 8 where they will compete with either Florida or UCLA for the right to go to the Final Four.
As you could imagine, the scene on the Dayton campus following the win was wild.
Actually, no, I don’t think you can imagine. You literally have to see this to believe it.
Every bit of that celebration is deserved as this team has worked hard and picked up three of the toughest wins in this tournament. They started out by upsetting Ohio State, then followed that up with an upset of Syracuse, and of course, tonight’s win over a Stanford team that just upset Kansas.
