How It Went Down
In a highly anticipated game for both teams, VCU ended up looking like their usual selves, beating the Dayton Flyers for the third time this season, 73-68. Although the Rams won by only five points on the final scoreboard, the Flyers never seemed to be competitive for the majority of this game.
VCU started the game on an 11-1 run, and it never got better from there. The star of the first half was Bones Hyland, of course, who finished the half with 23 points, shooting 69% from the field. It was such a great half for Bones that he finished off his amazing performance with a corner fadeaway three pointer with around 1.5 seconds left on the game clock. It truly was a masterful performance from the sophomore guard.
In addition to Bones, the VCU defense was able to force 9 first half turnovers for Dayton, which helped to build the lead to double digits throughout the first half. VCU would go into the half leading Dayton by eleven.
For Dayton, they really did not get...
