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.

The Sweet 16 gets under way tonight with four games.

How have the four in-state universities fared in the round of 16 you ask? They are a combined 4-15 and all four schools lost the last time they had a chance to reach the Elite 8.

Washington Huskies (2-5) – You must go back 60 years (1953) to find the last UW win.

Washington State Cougars (0-1) – Creamed in only appearance (2008).

Seattle U. (1-5) – Faced and lost to John Wooden and UCLA (1964) the last time.

Gonzaga (1-4) – Four straight losses since shocking Florida in 1999 by a single point.
