The Dayton Flyers get their postseason underway on Tuesday night with a first round NIT matchup against the Iowa Hawkeyes. The Flyers are the No. 2 seed but will have to go on the road to Iowa City to face the No. 7 seeded Hawkeyes because of the First Four NCAA Tournament games being played at UD Arena.
The Flyers NCAA Tournament bubble popped in heartbreaking fashion, with a one-point loss to rival Xavier in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic 10 tournament in Atlantic City. The Hawkeyes were just one game over .500 at 17-16, but it was their most successful season in years and this will be their first postseason game for this Senior class. While they're the lower seed, the Big Ten's eighth place team is still favored by four points. The game will get the national spotlight and be broadcast on ESPN.
