UD HOSTS WESTERN CAROLINA IN A SATURDAY NIGHT SHOWDOWN
The University of Dayton Flyers return home to host the Western Carolina Catamounts on Saturday with tip-off at 7 p.m. ET. The game will be televised on WHIO, carried by WHIO Radio and available with live streaming video, stats on Gametracker and streaming audio at www.DaytonFlyers.com.
Dayton begins a two-game homestand and enters the contest 7-3 overall. The Flyers are looking to get back on track after a hard-fought 74-71 loss to the Old Dominion Monarchs. Dayton has still been strong on the glass, out-rebounding opponents by a plus-6.1 margin. UD’s Juwan Staten, a two-time Atlantic 10 Rookie of the Week, leads the A-10 and all freshmen with 6.7 assists per game. In his last four contests, Paul Williams is averaging 12.8 points. Williams has been on fire from the outside, shooting 13-of-21 (.619) from three-point range. Chris Wright has a double-double in three of his last four games as well.
ABOUT WESTERN CAROLINA
The Catamounts are riding a four-game losing streak and come into the game with a 4-8 overall record. However, Western Carolina has victories over DePaul and Bradley this season. Western Carolina is not a great shooting team connecting on just .319 percent of field goal attempts, but they average 37.4 rebounds per contest. Senior guard Mike Williams leads the team in scoring with 15.7 points per game and assists with 4.0 per game. Richie Gordon is a force inside averaging 8.7 points per game and leads the team with 13 blocks.
Dayton won the only meeting 66-55 on Dec. 16, 2006.
DEFEND, REBOUND & RUN
The big difference in UD’s success comes from defense and rebounding. In the Flyers’ seven victories, their defense limits teams to shoot just .401 from the field, and UD out-rebounds opponents by a plus-9.4 margin. In the three losses, opponents have held a 127-114 rebounding edge and shot .419 from the floor. On the break, Dayton is 6-1 when they have more fast break points than their opponent. UD holds a 173-108 advantage this season in fast break points.
The month of December has been kind to Flyer head coach Brian Gregory. Gregory has never had a losing month of December, going 43-14 (.754) in eight seasons. Last year, Dayton went 7-0 in December and UD has won 22 of its last 25 dating back to the 2007-08 campaign.
Dayton has enjoyed scoring balance with six different leading scorers in its first 10 games. Chris Johnson has led the team three times. Chris Wright has done it twice. Devin Searcy, Paul Williams, Josh Parker and Juwan Staten once apiece. Dayton this season has seven different players averaging 4.3 points or more per game.
SPARK OFF THE BENCH
With such a deep team, it is no surprise UD’s bench serves as a big part of the team’s success. UD has out-scored the opponent’s bench 184-139 this season. Dayton won the first bench battle, out-scoring Mount St. Mary’s 17-11. Against Akron, Dayton held a 20-12 edge. At Ole Miss, UD held a 30-18 edge.

COOL HAND LUKE
Luke Fabrizius, Dayton’s top 3-point shooter from last season, opened the 2010-11 campaign with six points against East Tennessee State.

STATEN DOIN’ GREAT IN DAYTON
