On Tuesday night, we were slightly-shocked to see Dayton blow an 18-point lead at the hands of the Rhode Island Rams, a team that the Flyers beat handily in UD Arena a few weeks prior by 11. This was the second most note-worthy collapse of the season, the first being a 17-point collapse at home to the La Salle Explorers.
