For the 2023 Charleston Classic, the Dayton Flyers and LSU Tigers will play on Thursday. The victorious team will play in the title match on Sunday after they advance to the semifinals on Friday. Both teams have a 1-1 record; Dayton finished 20-11 previous year, and LSU finished 13-18. The Flyers have a 2-0 record against LSU in their all-time meeting, which took place in 1995.
LSU defeated Mississippi Valley State to start their campaign, but they suffered mightily in their final match. When LSU played Nicholls State, they lost by a score of two points. At halftime, LSU was behind 44–25, and despite a strong comeback, they fell just short. Although they lacked a true star, LSU employed a well-rounded offensive strategy. Jalen Reed finished with 14 points, 8 rebounds, alongside 1 assist. Jordan Wright concluded with 4 rebounds, 1 assist, along with 11 points. After adding 7-footer Will Baker from Nevada, Carlos Stewart from Santa Clara, Jordan Wright from Vanderbilt, and transfer Daimion Collins from Kentucky, the Tigers have a much better team under Matt McMahon in Baton Rouge at the moment.
Dayton beat Northwestern 71-66 in their last match, but they had won the opening contest versus SIU Edwardsville. Dayton won the second half 41-36 over Northwestern, but it was insufficient as they ultimately fell short 71-66. 53.8% of Dayton’s field goals and 52.2% of his three-pointers were made. Dayton’s best player, DaRon Holmes II, has averaged 17 points, 7 rebounds, as well as 6 assists. 4 different players scored a minimum of eleven points. Dayton’s squad is almost the same as it was the previous season, which finished with a 22-12 record and was ranked No. 68 by Bart Torvik. However, they lack depth and are without two important players from that campaign, Toumani Camara who went to the NBA, and Mustapha Amzil who transferred to New Mexico.
