Dayton Flyers All-Time One-on-One Tournament Bracket
Roosevelt Chapman defeats Pat Allen - 10-4
Much like his senior season at UD, Chapman was nearly perfect. With a dazzling display of acrobatic floaters and bank shots, Chapman fends of the scrappy Allen and finishes the contest on a 6-0 run.
Jim Paxson Sr. defeats Brooks Hall - 10-8
Hall gets hot early knocking down three consecutive shots from the arc to go up 6-0. However, Paxson begins to get his post game going and out-muscles Hall to tie the contest at 6-6. Paxson's balance proves too much though as he begins to take the ball to the rim and make two key stops to pull out the victory.
Bucky Bockhorn defeats George Jackson - 10-6
Bockhorn's defense made the biggest difference holding Jackson to 6-of-16 from the floor. With his strong, physical play under the basket, Bockhorn grinds out the victory and moves on to the next round.
Mike Sylvester defeats Coby Turner - 10-6
Once again, Turner starts off red-hot from the field knocking down his first four shots. However, Sylvester uses a tough inside-outside game to hit shots from almost everywhere on the court. After battling back from a 5-2 deficit, Sylvester hits two, two-pointers and stops Turner's outside shooting.
John Horan defeats Rudy Waterman - 10-3
A variety of pump fakes and drives to the hoop by Waterman couldn't get around the long arms of Horan. Horan, known as the "Vertical Hyphen," worked his low post magic and finishes Waterman on an 8-0 run.
Junior Norris defeats Chip Hare - 20-18
The biggest upset so far in the second round featured a gutsy performance once again by Norris. Hare stormed out to an early 4-0 lead before Norris began to drive hard to the basket. Trailing 10-9, Norris hit a long-range two-pointer to take the lead. After that both players traded buckets before Hare slipped while attempting to rebound a miss by Norris. Norris brought the ball back and sank a shot from beyond the arc to pull off the win. The game featured seven lead changes and four opportunities each for the winning basket.
Hank Finkel defeats Gene Klaus - 10-4
A tournament first happened in this contest as Finkel shot 10-for-10 from the floor and roll on to round three. Klaus' only two buckets came from beyond the arc, but Finkel dominated inside and did not allow an offensive rebound.
Ken May defeats Derrick Dukes - 10-8
A battle between two defensive wizards turns into an offensive affair. Dukes' quickness helped him to a 5-2 advantage. However, May tightened up on defense and made two key blocks on Dukes' drives to help him tie the game at 5-5. May continued to hound Dukes on the perimeter and eventually hit 3-of-4 shots down the stretch to pull out the win.
Negele Knight defeats Norm Grevey - 10-4
In a battle that goes down as the "Crossover Game," Knight dazzles all over the court hitting three shots from beyond the arc and four lay-ups to stop Grevey's outside shooting and advance to round three.
Mike Kanieski defeats Frank Case - 10-7
Known more for his post up play, Kanieski jumps out to a 4-1 lead early after hitting two shots from long-distance. Case challenges by going inside and hitting a couple of nifty lay-ups to bring the game to 6-5. However, Kanieski goes back to his bread-and-butter and focuses his efforts in the post and grinds out the win.
Bobby Joe Hooper defeats Kevin Conrad - 10-6
Ultra competitive game that features physical play throughout. Conrad held a 4-3 lead before Hooper fouled him hard while going up for a lay-up. Conrad responded by hitting a two-pointer on the ensuing possession to go up by three. But Hooper also got hot from the outside and drained his next three, two-point shots. Hooper eventually forced a turnover, a rare Conrad turnover and a block to spur his offense and pull out the game.
Jim Paxson Jr. defeats Don Donoher - 10-6
In a match between player versus mentor, Donoher figures out he groomed Paxson Jr. too well. Donoher had an early 3-1 lead before Paxson Jr. hit three consecutive shots from the outside. Donoher made a defensive adjustment and pulled within one only to have Paxson Jr. attack the basket and pull out the win.
Keith Waleskowski defeats Richard Montague - 10-7
The left-handers continue to dominate in the tournament as Waleskowski grit fuels a 5-0 run to take the lead 7-2. Montague started to make some shots in the post and pulled within 8-7. However, Waleskowski proved to be too much after scoring twice on put-backs to advance in the tournament.
Ed Young defeats Chris Daniels - 17-15
In one of the best games of the tournament, Young pulls out an acrobatic win over Daniels. This game was tied for a majority of the game as each player attacked the basket. Daniels had a chance to win up 9-8, but Young stripped him of the ball and hit a floater from eight feet out to force extra play. Up by one, Young hits an off-balanced bank shot, similar to the one against DePaul, to move on to the third round.
Garry Roggenburk defeats Anthony Grant - 10-7 The ambidextrous play of Roggenburk proved to be too much for Grant. Roggenburk scored from all spots on the floor hitting six shots with his right hand and four with his left.
defeats Bill Westerkamp
- 10-4 Corbitt gets hot early by going inside and netting his first five shots. Westerkamp hits a couple of buckets from the outside, but could not stop Corbitt's overall game. Corbitt closes the game with a two-pointer from the win and advances to the third round.
