Just under four months remain until the start of the 2018-19 college basketball season. Teams can begin play Nov. 6. That’s a Tuesday. Past seasons began Fridays.

While fans may not get to see the Flyers before then — the renovation of UD Arena could mean there won’t be a Red and Blue Game for the second straight year — UD provided the first extended glimpse of the team in action at practice this summer with a video posted to Facebook on Tuesday.
Dayton can work up to eight hours per week during the summer, but only four of those hours can be used on basketball-related activities, meaning the other four hours can be used on strength and conditioning.
