FlyerCountry.com Player of the Game
Freshman Marcus Johnson played with high energy and toughness tonight for the Flyers. Marcus had his first career double-double scoring 11 points and bringing in a career high 10 rebounds. Dayton Insider was also very impressed with his overall play as he disrupted a Yale possession every chance he had. Marcus scored in a variety of ways for his team. The most spectacular was when he caused a turn over, and went in for a high flying dunk to put the flyers up 52 – 37 with just a little over 11 minutes to play in the game. This is the second FlyerCountry.com P.O.G. in just four games for the sensational freshman.

The game was not all that easy for the Flyers as they continue to have problems in stretches of the game. The majority of that is because of the young players getting so many minutes. This is also caused because Norman Plummer has just returned to the lineup and Andres is still rehabbing from a broken foot. Coach Gregory has this to say about his young team "We had stretches where we played very well and then there were times where we were deficient. We are a team that is evolving."

Brian Roberts also had a very good game pumping in 15 points and a team high 4 assists. Brian made great decisions late in the game when he continued to get double teamed. Charles Little was the benefactor of those great decisions and took full advantage scoring 6 of his 10 points in the final 3 minutes of the game.

The Flyers do not have much time to rest as they will be preparing for the Cardinals from Louisville. Dayton will play Louisville Friday afternoon in Cincinnati in what will be another big test for this young and growing team.
