DAYTON FLYERS SPORTS RELEASE

FLYERS LOOK FOR WIN NO. 20, HOST MASSACHUSETTS ON SATURDAY
• Looking for their 20th victory of the season, the University of Dayton Flyers host the Massachusetts Minutemen on Saturday at 11 a.m. ET.
• The game will be televised by ESPNU, carried by WHIO Radio and is available with live streaming video, audio and stats at DaytonFlyers.com.

ABOUT MASSACHUSETTS
• The Massachusetts Minutemen come to Dayton 22-5 overall and 8-4 in the A-10. UMass has won five of its last six. The Minutemen have one of the most dynamic offenses in the league led by Chaz Williams (15.6 ppg). Cady Lalanne (12.5 ppg), Sampson Carter (10.9 ppg) and Raphiael Putney (9.8 ppg) add to the potent offense. The Minutemen lead the A-10 in scoring offense (76.8 ppg), assists (15.9), blocks per game (5.7) and rebounding offense (39.2).

SERIES STUFF

• When it is two players or less, the Flyers are 1-7.
• Overall, 11 different Flyers have scored in double figures in 2013-14.

FANTASTIC FEBRUARY
