 A still-stunned Darrell Davis stood in the cramped hallway outside his Dayton Flyers dressing room in the bowels of Humphrey Coliseum on Sunday night and talked quietly about the world beyond. “I know people are wondering what’s going on with the Flyers,” the 6-foot-5 senior guard said. “I know they’re not used...

Archdeacon: ‘Baby D’ setting the tone for young Dayton Flyers now
 The other morning he had another of those light-bulb moments where he realized just how much his presence, his reach, his impact have expanded for the Dayton Flyers this basketball season.

Tom Archdeacon: Wright State’s Wilburn not your typical college player
 His head coach brought it up on his radio show earlier this week and then I mentioned it again a few days later and he didn’t like it. I asked Tye Wilburn about being a preferred walk-on with the Wright State basketball team and instantly his voice flattened. “I don’t really talk about being a walk-on,” he said. &ldquo...

Archdeacon: Is the future now for Crutcher as Flyers’ point guard?
 “It’s not personal.” That’s the way University of Dayton coach Anthony Grant described changing point guards early in Wednesday night’s 73-60 loss to Auburn at UD Arena. At the 15:07 mark of the first half – with his Flyers already down 11-2 – Grant sat junior point guard John Crosby on the bench...

Tom Archdeacon: Bengals rookie Mixon showing some maturity
 It was a poor choice of words, but it didn’t cause a stir or even a second thought like it once would have. “You know what was real nice though?” Dave Lapham, the former Cincinnati Bengals lineman and now the radio color commentator asked Joe Mixon in his on-the-air post-game interview. “A lot (of what you did) was...

Archdeacon on Flyers’ Cunningham: ‘I came to UD for nights like this’
 Besides listening to “my music,” he said he has just one pregame ritual. “I always have to take a nice shower just to relax myself,” Josh Cunningham said. “It’s just to get me into the swing of things. To soothe myself and calm me down and get me in the mood.” Saturday night at UD Arena there was...

Archdeacon: Central State’s Richards a ‘beast’ — just like his mom
 She said her Wright State professors were amazed. “A lot of them thought I was crazy,” Amanda Mayle said. “I was a single mom with a little boy in tow. And I was the youngest person in class. I had graduated early (from Ohio University) and then gone straight into Wright State’s doctorate program without a master&rsquo...

Archdeacon: Sinclair basketball coach helps inmates win, too
 Early each morning she passes by two fences topped with barbed, razor wire, walks through the metal detector, gets her hand stamped with an invisible identifier seen only in special lighting, stops at a guard area to press an ID against reinforced glass and then show that special hand stamp. Finally, she goes through one electronically-controlled...

Archdeacon: Injured Custer surprises Wright State teammates with visit
 He surprised them before their game with Miami. The Wright State basketball players were going through warm-ups when Ryan Custer appeared on the edge of the Millett Hall court wearing a green warm-up, WSU shorts, black sneakers and a grin.

Archdeacon: ‘Cornerstone’ Price clears path to victory for Buckeyes
 In the world of college football — where bruises and bravado often dominate — Ohio State regularly gives one nod to sentimentality after each game when the team gathers in front of the band and sings the cherished alma mater, Carmen Ohio, as the fans chime in.

Archdeacon: Flyers’ win all about mind over matter for Williams
 Once he’d had enough fluids pumped into him after the game to stop the painful cramping in his legs, Xeyrius Williams stepped out of the team’s training room and explained what had just happened. “Mind over matter,” he said with a shrug, then a big smile. That should be the epigraph engraved on the Dayton Flyers&rsquo...

Archdeacon: Local Vietnam veteran still fighting the good fight
 It was 1968 and, in the words of Ron Daniels, “Nam was hot.” The American war effort was at its peak in Vietnam and the North Vietnamese People’s Army and the Viet Cong had launched their massive Tet Offensive.

Archdeacon: Wright State freshman ready to roll
 He sat in the top of the Nutter Center — up on the concourse overlooking the well-lit basketball court — and talked about his development. “I’d watch what other people did, then go try it.

Archdeacon: Diamond in the rough hopes to sparkle for Dayton Flyers

Archdeacon: Wright State’s Mitchell rebounds on the court, in life
 The call left him reeling. Justin Mitchell and his twin brother Jescus — who he calls Zuess — had spent the night at their mom’s home in Fort Wayne rather than at the Clinton Street house where they lived with their dad. When the phone rang, everyone was still asleep. Justin, who was then 16, answered: “It was my younger...
