Dayton women two spots out of top 25

Flyers take 15-game winning streak into last week of regular season


Highlights

Flyers play George Mason at home on Wednesday.

A 15-game winning streak has moved the Dayton Flyers two spots closer to the top 25 in the Associated Press women’s basketball poll.

Dayton received 29 points in voting Monday. It’s two spots out of the top 25. It’s just behind Minnesota, the only other team receiving votes left out of the top 25. Both trail No. 25 Oklahoma State.

Dayton (21-4, 14-0) clinched the Atlantic 10 Conference regular-season championship Sunday with a 79-54 victory against Fordham at UD Arena. Dayton plays George Mason in its final home game at 7 p.m. Wednesday and closes the regular season with a game at Saint Louis at 3 p.m. Saturday.

The 15-game winning streak is tied for the third longest in school history.  The Flyers won 18 games in a row in a streak that began in February 1980 and ended in November of the following season. Dayton has twice won 16 in a row, most recently in the 2007-08 season, and it has two other 15-game winning streaks, one coming in the 2012-13 season.
