About Dayton: The Flyers have won eight straight season openers and 11 of their last 12. They’re 40-4 in home openers at UD Arena and won 23 home openers in a row from 1969-91. … Archie Miller is in his third season as head coach. He’s 37-27. … Sophomore center Devon Scott is active after being suspended for the two exhibition games. The Flyers beat Ryerson 89-62 and Findlay 96-87 in exhibition play. … Junior Jordan Sibert, an Ohio State transfer, averaged 20.0 points in the exhibition games.

About IPFW: The Mastodons finished 16-17 last season. They won six of their last seven games. They return seven players who started at least two games. Their biggest loss from last season is Frank Gaines, the program’s all-time leading scorer. He was the 18th overall pick in the NBA D-League draft. … This is coach Tony Jasick’s third season. He’s 27-36 in his first two seasons. … Jacobo was named to the All-Summit League preseason second team. The team was picked to finish sixth. … The program has been in Division I since the 2001-02 season.

FYI: This is the first of 29 games on TV for the Flyers. That’s a record for the program. Jim Kelch will handle play-by-play on the Fox Sports Ohio broadcast, and Derrick Dukes will be the analyst. … This is the first meeting between the two schools. IPFW is 0-2 all-time against the Atlantic 10 with losses to George Mason and St. Louis. … With rule changes expected to increase the number of free throws shot this season, that could be a big stat today. IPFW shot 64 percent at the line last year, while Dayton shot 72 percent.
