More Basketball: Dayton hosts NCAA 1st round as always

One of best nights in the men’s Division I tournament takes place at one of our member campuses, as the University of Dayton annually hosts the “first-round” game between the 64th and 65th seeded teams. Tuesday night, Mount St. Mary’s plays Coppin State at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are reasonable and available, and these play-in games usually are intense and fun.

Meanwhile, Dayton’s own team is in the National Invitation Tournament, playing host to Cleveland State Wednesday night at the UD Arena.
