The University of Dayton will honor the Flyer men’s and women’s basketball teams with a public celebration on Tuesday, March 31 at the University of Dayton Arena. The celebration is free and will begin at 6:30 p.m. ET. Doors open at 6 p.m. ET.
“There is a lot of excitement surrounding our basketball programs right now, and we want our fans and both teams to share in that. Plus, we would love nothing better than to turn this event into a pep rally that sends out women’s team off to the Final Four!,” Tim Wabler, UD’s Vice-President and Director of Athletics said.
“We have a big event coming (Winter Guard International – WGI) into the Arena later this week, and if we did not have this celebration on Tuesday, we would not be able to recognize our basketball teams until late April,” Wabler added.
Fans can park for free in A lot and enter through the south entrance that faces Interstate 75. Seating will be on the east side of the Arena.
The Dayton men finished the year 27-9 and advanced to the third round of the NCAA tournament. The UD women are 27-6, and will be making their first trip to the Sweet Sixteen this weekend. The Flyers play Louisville at the East Regional in Albany, N.Y. on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. ET. That game can be seen on ESPN and WatchESPN.
