On tap: Dayton vs. Charlotte

It's no question Dayton has the Wright stuff right now. The Flyers are 34-4 overall, 24-0 at home and 4-0 against ranked opponents with Chris Wright in the lineup during his career at Dayton. He missed most of last season due to a severe ankle injury.

Last season, Wright earned a spot on the Atlantic 10 all-rookie team even though he played just eight minutes in conference play. So far this season, Wright leads the Flyers scoring (12.9 ppg), rebounding (7.0 rpg), field goals made (107), offensive rebounds (63), defensive rebounds (97), blocks (26), free throw attempts (112) and double-doubles (four).

The 49ers obviously will have their hands full in trying to contain Wright in Saturday's matchup at Halton Arena. What helps Wright the most is the Flyers' ability to run up to 11 players into the game, keeping their top players fresh when they are needed most. With a rash of injuries, Charlotte doesn't have the same luxury.

34-4??? where are these stats from? And the game was on SUNDAY, not Saturday... this writer needs to review his stuff before he posts incorrect information.
