Boise State takes on Dayton in the First Four of the NCAA tournament and it is totally unfair that the Flyers are hosting this game against the Broncos. Hey, the NCAA was nice enough to designate Boise State as the home team.
Dayton is out of the Atlantic-10 and finished the season with a 25-8 record fell to VCU in the A-10 tournament final. The Flyers are built on defense which is 36th nationally in defensive efficiency. The key players are Scoochie Smith, Kyle Davis and Jordan Sibert.
With the Flyers being such the defensive team this matchup could be similar to what Boise State faced in Wyoming, Not that the Cowboys were so good on defense but a possible lower scoring game with points being a premium.
The real difference in this game could be the crowd that will be 95 percent behind Dayton, OK that might be a bit over the edge, but Boise State can not allow Dayton to go on very many runs in this game if they are going to win.
