Dayton Flyers are rolling and have not lost a game since December. They already has the top seed locked in the Atlantic-10 conference. Obi Toppin will lead the team against the Rams anew but cannot do it alone. He will get much-needed help from Jalen Crutcher and Trey Landers. However, they need to step up on defense, particularly defending three-point shooters.

Rhode Island Rams
The struggling Rams continue to grope for form and will be in for a tough night against Dayton. They dropped three of their last five games and another loss looms.

The defense will be tested with Rhode Island allowing opponents to score 68.5 points per game.
