The Flyers are coming off a big road win over Alabama on Tuesday, but transfer Josh Cunningham went down with a leg injury at the end of the game, leaving Dayton with a serious lack of depth on the interior. Dayton is 2-0 on the young season, and it will host #17 St. Mary’s on Saturday in a huge home game.
