VCU held a ‘Black Out’ when it hosted the Flyers in January, winning 76-71 in Richmond, Va. This ‘White Out’ will come during a sold-out game. It’s one of the last four home games of the season. They are all sold out. Dayton tied the school record with eight sellouts this season.
Each fan at the game will receive a white pom-pom sponsored by Pepsi.
After winning 77-48 at Rhode Island on Saturday, Dayton (16-8, 8-3) is tied for third place with George Mason in the Atlantic 10. VCU (17-6, 8-2) is tied for first place with Davidson.
