Dayton Fans Sure Had Fun Celebrating the Flyers Trip to the Elite 8

This is probably as good a time as ever to be a Dayton basketball fan. A week ago Dayton beat in-state rival (the) Ohio State in the NCAA Tournament second round. It’s managed to get even better than that for Archie Miller’s team. The Flyers have won two more tournament games and punched a ticket into the Elite 8 last night.

The Flyers celebrated the win over the Buckeyes, in part, with a great newspaper headline. Thursday night’s win over Stanford the party was better, even if the riot police were eventually called in to disperse the crowd. The Dayton Daily News reports 28 arrests were made on the campus. The roof of once porch on┬áKiefaber Street also collapsed.

Take a look how it looked at the Dayton epicenter of the celebration:
