Beating Ohio State wasn’t enough. The No. 11-seed Dayton Flyers squeaked out victory over the No.3-seed Syracuse Orange on Saturday, 55-53, reaching the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1984. With the campus buzzing after the game, Dayton’s President, Dan Curran, went crowd-surfing with the UD students.

This is March Madness at its finest. Dayton plays the winner of the Kansas/Stanford game in the next-round.
