Dayton women’s basketball coach Jim Jabir promised to get a tattoo if the Flyers made the Sweet 16 for the first time. On Wednesday, he followed through on the promise.
“An season that will live forever in @DaytonWBB history, and on Jim Jabir’s ankle,” the University of Dayton’s Twitter account proclaimed.
The Flyers finished the season 28-7 and beat Iowa State, Kentucky and Louisville in the NCAA tournament, reaching the Elite Eight for the first time. They led No. 1 seed Connecticut at halftime but lost 91-70 to the eventual national champions.
