About Dayton: Vee Sanford leads non-starters in scoring with 9.8 points per game. … Oliver leads the team in rebounding (7.4) and assists (2.6). … The Flyers had an effective field-goal percentage of 64.3 percent in Wednesday’s 80-68 victory at Fordham. That’s the third time they’ve topped 60 percent this season (65.7 against Winthrop and 61.5 against Iona). That stat takes into account the fact that a 3-pointer is worth more than 2-point field goal. For example, a player who shoots 4 of 10 with two 3-pointers would have the same percentage as a player who shot 5-of-10 with no 3-pointers.

About Richmond: Lindsay ranks second in the A-10 in scoring. … Richmond ranks 11th in the A-10 in scoring offense (69.6) and third in scoring defense (65.5). The Flyers play the A-10’s three top scoring defenses in their first four A-10 games (St. Louis, Richmond and Virginia Commonwealth). Dayton hosts VCU on Wednesday. … Richmond ranks last in the conference in free-throw percentage (63.8) It shot 66.7 percent in its last game, a 77-74 overtime victory over Fordham. That snapped a five-game streak in which it shot under 60 percent. … Dayton has made five more 3-pointers than Richmond (112-107) on 58 fewer attempts (348-290). Richmond ranks 12th in A-10 in 3-point percentage (30.7), and Dayton is second (38.6).

FYI: The Spiders lead the all-time series 12-8. The Flyers snapped a four-game losing streak to Richmond with a 78-74 victory at UD Arena last March. The Flyers have lost five straight games at Richmond.
