After finishing the regular season 18-10, the 1983-84 Dayton Flyers were one of the last teams picked in a 53 team NCAA field. They made it as the #10 seed in the West Region and wasted little time making their presence felt beating #7 seed LSU, 74-66.
Waiting for the Flyers in the 2nd round was #2 seed Oklahoma and their All American Wayman Tisdale. Dayton had a star of their own. Roosevelt Chapman poured in 41 points to out duel Tisdale and defeat the Sooners 89-85 which put UD in the Sweet 16.
Dayton continued their Cinderella run beating #6 seed Washington in the Sweet 16 before falling to eventual National Champion Georgetown in the Elite 8.
"We did understand what the coach wanted done, and we understood each other's strengths and we played to those strengths. There's no doubt that we had, if you want to call it mojo or what, we had the chemistry and the mojo and the momentum going for us at that time."
