Saturday’s slate of games is pretty solid. In fact, 16 ranked teams will see action at some point during the day. One of those teams being the 7-1 Dayton Flyers. They will go on the road to face a 4-4 Illinois State Redbirds squad, who hasn’t exactly lit the world on fire, but is competent enough to hang with a team of Dayton’s stature. Does that mean it’s going to be a great game to watch? Well, define great.

Is It Worth Your Time and Eyeball Dedication?
Actually, yes. There isn’t a ton of great games on at that time. Also, it’s probably a good idea to get to know Dayton. I mean, you might want to use them come the NCAA Tournament as a sleeper team or something. Really, there is no better time than the present to get prepped for March. Think of yourself as a bear getting ready to hibernate or something. Except you’re not going to sleep in the woods, you’ll just be watching other college basketball teams.
