The Dayton Flyers Really Don't Get The Point

It's halftime of the big Atlantic 10 tilt between bubble team Dayton and 20th-ranked Temple in Philadelphia, and the score is certainly unexpected, especially for a game between a two teams who have a chance at postseason play.

Temple 19, Dayton 13

You're eyes aren't deceiving you. A team fighting for its NCAA life shot 16 percent from the field in the first half. They scored just nine points in the first 17 minutes, 30 seconds of the half before exploding for four more in the last two and a half minutes.

Miraculously, the Flyers are only down six. That's because the Owls, who I projected as a 5 seed in my Monday bracket, only managed to hit nine of their 30 field goal attempts for the half. 

Remember, Flyers, the only way off the bubble is to win games, and you need to put the ball in the basket to do that.
