Archdeacon: Wheelchair basketball team making Miami Valley proud
 As he took off his t-shirt and reached for the jersey he’d wear for practice, you couldn’t help but notice the half-done mural Ray Hennagir has tattooed across his entire back. It showed two helmeted soldiers on patrol who suddenly have been engulfed in a massive explosion that certainly would have maimed them. This truly was...

Archdeacon: A teary UD Arena farewell for Flyers’ Layfield
 It had been her last time playing at UD Arena and at mid-court it hit her. JaVonna Layfield — biting her lip to try to stave off the welling emotion — stopped near the big logo and slowly surveyed the scene Wednesday night. Her coach, Shauna Green, was behind her, wearing a headset as she talked to the radio guys on press row...

Archdeacon: Antetokounmpo gives Flyers, fans something to dance about
 The night went from dancing feet to stocking feet. As the Dayton Flyers starters were being announced, Kostas Antetokounmpo was doing another of his pregame dances. “Before the games start – during presentations when they say the players’ names — I got my little dance routine,” the 6-foot-10 backup big man said...

Archdeacon: ‘Level-headed’ Landers relishing role with Flyers
 “I level-headed myself.” That’s Trey Landers simple, but linguistically-styled explanation for how he got himself from being buried on the bench last year to becoming a driving force for the Dayton Flyers this season, especially Saturday night when he scored 15 points in the first 11 minutes of the game and finished with...

Archdeacon: WSU’s Custer, La Tulip share unbreakable bond
 ESPN missed the boat. During Friday night’s broadcast of Wright State’s gripping 69-67 victory over Northern Kentucky at the Nutter Center, ESPN twice sent a crew over to Ryan Custer, who was in a green sweatshirt, black shorts and a wheelchair at the end of the Raiders’ bench. They fitted the WSU sophomore with a headset...

Archdeacon: Welch, Smith honored — pillars of Wright State’s women’s team
 The Wright State women played Northern Kentucky on Saturday afternoon at the Nutter Center and Chelsea Welch cried. It wasn’t because of something NKU did. The Raiders’ 5-foot-9 senior guard scored 21 points — a half-point below the average that has her tied for No. 11 in all of NCAA Division I scoring this season &ndash...

Archdeacon: Salary dispute leads to departure of successful CSU coach
 She was a three-time All-American at Central State. She was inducted into the school’s Hall of Fame in 2011. She was named Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference coach of the year at the end of last season and a few months later in Washington, D.C. was honored as the HBCU Digest female coach of the year.

Archdeacon: ‘Wally Night’ honors all-time Miami great Szczerbiak
 There was a déjà vu moment at halftime. Millett Hall had a basketball crowd like it’s rarely seen in recent years. The lower bowl was filled thanks, in part, to a couple of thousand Miami University students who showed up Friday night to see the RedHawks play Toledo. Many in the crowd wore replica No. 32 jerseys that had...

Archdeacon: Wright State’s Hughes puts on a show for injured teammate
 Mark Hughes was different. Moments before Thursday’s game with Green Bay, each player on the Wright State team made his way to the end of the bench where Ryan Custer — their 6-foot-7 teammate hurt in a freak accident in the offseason that fractured his C-5 vertebrae and left him with no feeling below his chest — sat in his...

Archdeacon: Diminutive guard standing tall for Miami women
 If ever someone has outgrown an old nickname it is Lauren Dickerson. They call her “Lo.” “I got it from an assistant coach in high school, but it doesn’t come from my name,” the Miami University point guard said with a shrug, then a faint smile. “It means I’m so low to the ground.” But don&rsquo...

Archdeacon: Winter Olympic moments from Tonya to the disappearing reindeer
 The most aggressive, most frantic media scrums I ever dealt with in 45 years as a sportswriter were during the coverage of the bruising soap opera between Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding that played out at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway. All eyes were on the pair of American figure skaters after Kerrigan had been clubbed...

Archdeacon: Central State-Wilberforce rivalry intense as ever
 It’s the most intense, most storied college basketball rivalry in the Miami Valley these days and yet Saturday afternoon, Central State relied on two guys who know almost nothing about the history and connections to help save the day against Wilberforce. “No, I don’t know a thing about all that,” said CSU’s junior...

Archdeacon: No hoops team quite like this season’s Sinclair women
 Victoria Jones was dissecting her team the way no other college coach in the area can do. “Quelle, that’s 00 out there (Laquelle Jacobs), she works at McDonald’s,” the Sinclair Community College women’s basketball coach said as she stood on the edge of the court during practice Thursday afternoon. “Amanda...

Archdeacon: UD women’s coach winning on the court, and in life
 Shauna Green orchestrated two major victories Wednesday night. For the first, she put together a game plan — with the help of her assistant coaches — that enabled her Dayton Flyers women’s basketball team to overwhelm Duquesne early, bottle up the Dukes’ leading scorer, Chassidy Omogrosso, all game long and then down...

Archdeacon: Raiders’ Love celebrates Mom’s birthday in style
 Loudon Love sure knows how to throw a birthday party. Sunday was his mom, Laura’s birthday and she was at the Nutter Center to celebrate it. She had driven in from her home in the western suburbs of Chicago a couple of days ago to take in Wright State’s two weekend games and especially to see her son, the Raiders 6-foot-9, 275-pound...

Archdeacon: With footwear and some soap, Wright State wins big again
 During the basketball season, here’s one thing you’d never expect 6-foot-9, 275-pound Loudon Love to say to the person matched up next to him: “Tell me if I’m being too rough here now, OK?” Yet that’s exactly what the Wright State big man said some 13 hours after he had finished roughing up Detroit Mercy...

Archdeacon: Miami East girl, already a wrestling champion, wants more
 When it comes to sports, she takes after her dad, not her mom. George, her dad, wrestled in high school, then at Wilmington College. Her mom, Tracie, was a cheerleader at Middletown High School. “I do have to admit I did cheerleading one year,” Olivia Shore said reluctantly and with a bit of disdain. “It was fourth grade...

Archdeacon: Beloved Red Panda strives for halftime perfection
 Rong Niu quietly said what everyone in UD Arena was thinking: “This is nervous time.” Out on the court, the Dayton Flyers — who had jumped out to a 12-0 lead on Davidson — had watched the Wildcats surge back with 11 straight points in less than three minutes. And now their Atlantic 10 rivals wouldn’t go away...

Archdeacon: Flyers’ Landers on feeling pressure — ‘I don’t use that word’
 It was as if someone had just slipped him a glass of sour milk and he had taken a big swig. Trey Landers spit the word out and made a bit of a face. “Did you say pressure?” the University of Dayton guard said with a mix of incredulity and distaste, only some of it feigned. “I don’t know what that word is…I don&rsquo...
