The undisputed darlings of the NCAA Tournament's opening weekend were the Dayton Flyers (25-10) hands down. Dayton started off the 2014 tournament with a bang by upsetting 6th seeded in-state rival Ohio State in Thursday's first game. The 60-59 win came as the Buckeyes were favored by 6.5 points. Not one player really stuck out in Thursday's win as Dyshawn Pierre (12 points), Devin Oliver (11 points) and Vee Sanford (10 points) led the way in scoring. Saturday's upset of 3rd seeded Syracuse was even more impressive for Dayton as 8.5 point underdogs in front of a New York crowded predominantly pro-Syracuse. Pierre (14 points) and Jordan Sibert (10 points) were the only Flyers to reach double figures in an all-around team effort winning 55-53.
Stanford has been involved in two close games, winning 58-53 over 7th seed New Mexico as 4.5 favorites and 60-57 over #2 Kansas while getting 6.5 points. Chasson Randle has been the best man on the floor so far for the Cardinals, averaging 18.0 ppg in the first two rounds. Stefan Nastic and Anthony Brown have added 10.0 ppg so far as well for Stanford.
Dayton finds themselves underdogs yet again in the 7:15ET Thursday matchup as Stanford opened as slight 2.5 point favorites. Both teams are comfortable in close games and the Memphis, TN location doesn't offer a travel advantage to either squad. Only time will tell which team's dream season comes to an abrupt end.
