Thankfully, the Flyers don't have any Lob City transfers primed to blow our doors off. They do, however, have the following:

Sibert, the 6-4, 187-pound former Ohio St. Buckeye, leads the way for the Flyers, who will be attempting to knock off their second ranked team in as many nights. They beat Gonzaga yesterday by getting the Zags' big men into foul trouble early and eventually fouling both out. Gonzaga actually led by 9 at the half before Dayton scored 56 points in the second half with Sam Dower and Przemek Karnowski both out of commission.

Kenpom's rankings have Dayton 53rd overall to our 34th, largely on the strength of their offense. Baylor's strength is relatively balanced in this young season between offense and defense, but our ability to score on Dayton may be something to watch.

Another guy to watch is sophomore Dyshawn Pierre, a Canadian forward that Baylor actually recruited a year ago and didn't get. As ESPN notes, he'll probably draw duty against Cory Jefferson, who can make him work on both ends.

Baylor is a 3-point favorite in this game as of this writing.
