UPDATE: Fans Send Flyers Off
DAYTON -- The bus carrying the University of Dayton Flyers basketball team pulled away from campus at 4 this afternoon to a sea of fans. Their game versus No. 10 seed Stanford is not until Thursday night, but you wouldn't know judging from the amount of fan excitement from their send off.
"I've been a fan for all these years, 50 years!" Said John Raponi. "And I wanted to be here to wish them good luck."
Raponi was the first fan to show up Tuesday afternoon, but about 100 more followed.
"I support my Dayton Flyers all day, every day," said UD freshman Kevin Claffy.
"We want them to know the community is behind them. We're here to send them off and bring home a win," said fan Monica Smith.
The crowd erupted for head coach Archie Miller. Just in his third season and he's making history, sending the University to its first Sweet 16 in 30 years.
"We want to be in this as long as we can," the coach said before getting on the bus. "So we're going to play to win and we're hoping we can stay a little bit longer."
"We've had a good two days so far and they're a tough team but we're going to be ready to play," said Matt Kavanaugh. The match-up versus Stanford could be his last as a Flyer, but for the hometown senior starter, the fans are making it unforgettable.
"We've got great support. The fan base around this area is unbelievable. The Flyer Faithful travels well and they've been here for us supporting us throughout the whole year. The student support has been incredible so we hope to keep making them proud."
Tickets for the UD game in Memphis are available through the NCAA website primesport.com and through Stub Hub.
DAYTON -- The University of Dayton men's basketball team left for their Sweet Sixteen game in Memphis through a tunnel of fans Tuesday afternoon.
About 100 Flyer Faithful and members of the student fan group Red Scare made a tunnel from the doors of the Cronin Athletic Complex to the bus. They cheered and chanted as the players and coaches packed up and left campus.
The team went to the Dayton Airport and then flew south.
The Flyers take on Stanford Thursday night, and the university's first Sweet Sixteen appearance in 30 years gave fans a lot to cheer about during the send off.
"We want them to know the community is behind them," said fan Monica Smith, "we're here to send them off and bring home a win We're going!"
"I support my Dayton Flyers all day every day," said UD freshman Kevin Claffy, "I came out to see our team two days before our game just to give them a good Dayton goodbye!"
