After advancing their second straight NCAA Tournament, the Dayton Flyers are looking to make it three straight for the first time since their stretch from 1965-1967. They will have a rather tough road in their non-conference schedule.
DaytonFlyers.com released the team’s non-conference schedule and it includes three match-ups against SEC teams and at least three match-ups against teams that made the Tournament last season. There is also still one open date on the Flyers’ schedule.
The Flyers open the season at home against Southeast Missouri and Alabama on November 13 and 17 respectively. Their one open game is a November 21 date that has yet to have been filled.
The Flyers then travel to Orlando, Florida to participate in the Advocare Invitational. They have been confirmed to face off against 2015 Tournament team Iowa in the quarterfinal round. Alabama, Monmouth, USC, Wichita State, Notre Dame, and Xavier have all been confirmed to take place in the invitational as well.
December opens up with another Tournament team when they host the Ospreys of North Florida. The Flyers’ only true road game in their non-conference schedule is a game against Vanderbilt in Nashville.
The Flyers close out December with games against Chattanooga, Furman, Miami-Ohio, and Arkansas all at home on the 12, 19, 22, and 30. They also have a rather favorable Atlantic 10 schedule as they host both VCU and Davidson, but have to travel to George Mason and Saint Joseph’s.
