Dayton’s win brings back sad memories

28 Mar

Dayton took down Stanford Thursday night 82-72 to advance to the Elite 8 of the NCAA Tournament.

Seeing Dayton playing in the Sweet 16, brought back March Madness memories of 1984.

30 years ago – this week (March 23, 1984)

The Washington Huskies faced the Dayton Flyers in a NCAA Sweet 16 matchup played in Los Angeles.

Dayton beat UW 64-58 behind the 22 points and nine rebounds by Roosevelt Chapman.

The Huskies led at halftime 22-21 but were outscored 43-36 in the second 20 minutes. Dayton made 24 of 35 free throws, while UW was just 4 for 13.

Scoring for the Huskies were Detlef Schrempf (18), Paul Fortier (8), Chris Welp (7), Alvin Vaughn (7), Shag Williams (6), Reggie Rogers (6), Clay Damon (2), Tim Kuyper (2), and Gary Gardner (2).


Washington beat Duke in the Round of 32 to advance to the Sweet 16 for the first time since the early 1950s.
