Dayton fans can tell you that this season has been frustrating of sorts. They’ve sat through nine games of intense, close scoring games that resulted in either miraculous wins or late buzzer-beating letdowns. Well, that type of game did not come to fruition on Wednesday night in UD Arena as the Flyers took care of business against Duquesne by winning 72-63.
The Flyers were led by their two stars in Jalen Crutcher and Ibi Watson, who scored 18 and 19 points, respectively, for Dayton. Freshman forward Mustapha Amzil also scored in double figures with 11 points of his own, along with 8 rebounds. Elijah Weaver manned the point with 9 points with also dishing out 6 assists, which led the team. Jordy Tshimanga did not put up many points (only 2 on the night), but he led the team with 9 rebounds. Zimi Nwokeji seemed to finally found his role, scoring 9 points on 6-8 shooting from the free throw line and hitting 1-3 from the arch.
