Flyers most tweeted about team, report says


The Dayton Flyers are the most tweeted about team in the NCAA tournament, according to a report on Sports Illustrated's SI WIRE.

The Flyers were mentioned in 59,788 tweets, according to data from Simply Measured, a social media analytics group. The Kentucky Wildcats were the second-most tweeted about team, with 34,715 mentions.

Last Friday's Dayton Daily News headline, "THE University of Dayton," which touted the Dayton Flyers' win over the Ohio State Buckeyes, seemed to start the social media frenzy about the team. Mentioned in national media outlets such as USA Today, ESPN, Fox Sports, Bleacher Report, The Washington Post and CBS Sports, the headline about the Flyers received more than 16,000 Twitter mentions Friday morning alone.
