It is an impressive record but it comes in a weak Atlantic 10 conference which does not do it any justice.

They have been ranked since going 5-1 with that one loss being to a third-ranked Kansas. They immediately jumped to the 19th spot in the top-25. Obi Toppin, however, has been an impressive player for them this season as he leads the team in points, rebounds, and blocks.

Whether bettors value their conference or not, Dayton is headed to March Madness with Toppin leading the way.


Davidson has had a season to forget as they’re a mediocre 15-12. Probably the only positive thing coming out of this season is their ability to score the ball. In 18 of their 27 games this season they’ve put up 70 or more points.

There are two main factors that need to come into play if Davidson really wants a chance at pulling off an upset. The first one being to contain Obi Toppin. Toppin has been on a roll averaging 19.7 ppg, 7.7 rpg and 1.3 blk. If they could get the ball in anyone else’s hands they should.

Secondly, they would need to step up on defense. In 14 games this season they have allowed 70+ points which is unacceptable. If both of those factors come together than watch out.

The game tips off tonight at 7:00 p.m. EST on ESPN2.
