Tough loss yesterday as Maryland was sunk at the buzzer by Michigan State. Let’s get back in the W column today.

The Match-up: Dayton Flyers(21-12) at Cincinnati Bearcats(19-15)

This is a second round match-up in the NIT tournament. Both teams had no problems winning their first round games. Cincinnati disposed Weber State, 76-62. Senior guard, Deonta Vaughn had 16 points in the victory. Dayton ousted Illinois State, 63-42. Sophomore guard, Chris Johnson, added 13 points in the victory.

Overall, Cincinnati is 12-4 at home. Dayton is a pedestrian, 4-8. Cinncinati plays in the better conference and their bigs(Yancy Gates, Rashad Bishop) should give the Flyers issues on the inside. Deonta Vaughn will want to end his career at Madison Square Garden, not in Cincinnati. Bearcats by 5.

The Pick: Cinncinati Bearcats (19-15)

March Record: 15-6
