Current Records: Duquesne 6-14; Dayton 15-8

What to Know

The Dayton Flyers will be returning home after a two-game road trip. Dayton and the Duquesne Dukes will face off in an Atlantic 10 battle at 7 p.m. ET Wednesday at University of Dayton Arena. Given that both teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this game.

The contest between the Flyers and the Saint Louis Billikens this past Saturday was not a total blowout, but with Dayton falling 72-61 on the road, it was darn close to turning into one. One thing holding Dayton back was the mediocre play of guard Malachi Smith, who did not have his best game: he played for 36 minutes but put up just eight points on 4-for-15 shooting.

Meanwhile, Duquesne came up short against the VCU Rams this past Saturday, falling 71-62. Forward Tre Williams put forth a good effort for the losing side as he had 19 points.

Dayton is the favorite in this one, with an expected 13.5-point margin of victory. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with the Flyers, who are 11-12 against the spread.

The losses put Dayton at 15-8 and the Dukes at 6-14. A pair of defensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Dayton ranks 16th in college basketball when it comes to points allowed per game, with only 60.8 on average. Less enviably, Duquesne has allowed their opponents to shoot 46.20% from the floor on average, which is the 24th highest shooting percentage allowed in college basketball. So the cards are definitely stacked against Duquesne.
