In March, I had the opportunity to go to Brooklyn to cover the Atlantic 10 tournament at the brand new Barclays Center. The University of Dayton got knocked out in the first round, but I stayed around through the championship and made pictures. The facility is amazing– the media work room, the media meals, the court, the architecture, etc. I’m really looking forward to going back in March 2014. After a busy semester, here is part 1 of 2:

UD falls short against Illinois State 74-73

University of Dayton redshirt junior guard Vee Sanford (43) reacts to his team missing a last-second, game-winning shot during a game against Illinois State University at UD Arena, Dec. 19, 2012, in Dayton, Ohio. Illinois State won 74-73.

The Flyers were back at home taking on Illinois State University, on Wednesday, Dec. 19. UD faced a physical and quick Redbird team that had them down by two at halftime. The Flyers battled through the second half and had 29 seconds to make the game-winning shot. Despite two attempts in the last 10 seconds, they could not get a shot to fall. The Flyers are now 8-3 on the season.

Even worse than the loss at home was redshirt senior guard Kevin Dillard having to leave the game abruptly with about four minutes to go in the second half due to an apparent back problem. I was about five feet from him after he hobbled to the bench, and he sounded like he was in excruciating pain in his “whole back.” After a couple minutes of grimacing and cursing on the bench, he left the gym floor with team trainer Nate Seymour and did not return.
