Mark Schlemmer calls it the biggest rivalry that never happens – And he is right. College basketball fans who live in the city of Dayton are very fortunate. They don’t only have one D1 college basketball team but they have two D1 college basketball teams. The Dayton Flyers and the Wright State Raiders.
Kentucky vs Louisville. Xavier vs Cincinnati. Duke vs North Carolina. These are just a few of the biggest college basketball rivalries that the sport has to offer and they all have the same common factor that Wright State and Dayton has. Geographical interest.
Here a few of the common arguments that you hear as to why these two teams won’t play:
Regardless it’s not Wright State or UD that is impacted by not playing this game. It’s the local fans. There is no real excuse (good ones that is) to justify this rivalry not being displayed on the hardwood.
Enough is enough – Dayton. Wright State. Make it happen.
