There’s a Seneca Nation casino just west of Olean, N.Y, not far from St. Bonaventure. The Bonnies and their fans could have fled the Reilly Center at halftime and bet everything at the casino on them coming back from a 27-point halftime deficit to make it interesting because anyone watching the Flyers all season knew that lead wasn’t safe.
The Flyers lost 25 points off a lead that grew as big as 31 points, but they didn’t lose the game and that’s all that counts, especially on the road in the Atlantic 10, where strange things happen and teams can be great and bad in the same evening.
Dayton won 85-79, and here’s how Twitter reacted.
