Archdeacon: Tireless work ethic drives Flyers’ sharpshooter Cannatelli
 If you’ve ever watched the University of Dayton women finish their pregame warm-ups, you may have noticed one player lagging behind on Blackburn Court. Lauren Cannatelli often begs the rebounders to feed her the ball for one more shot. “Whether it’s been with her club team or at a high school practice or even here before...

Archdeacon: Cunningham shines brightest on a dim day for Flyers
 As long as he doesn’t let his mom turn into some modern-day Delilah, the Dayton Flyers will have some hope in this season of struggle. At least that’s the way an old biblical tale could apply to UD’s current basketball trials. Josh Cunningham is as close to Sampson as any Flyer gets. If you don’t remember, Sampson...

Archdeacon: Wright State’s ‘G.O.A.T.’ soars to the top again
 Because her high school career was such a roller-coaster ride, with some trumpeted success that twice gave way to seasons of suspension, once for a whole year, Kim Demmings had to keep turning her uniform back in. With no dibs on a number, she wore 31 for a while at Richmond High in Indiana and also 23. When she got to Wright State University...

Archdeacon: Wright State’s Cole Gentry — ‘I decided to bet on myself’
 Most D-I college suitors treated him like a wallflower at a junior high dance and he knows why. “Sometimes guys don’t pass the eye test,” said Wright State point guard Cole Gentry.” I’m not 6-foot-3. I don’t have long arms. I don’t jump as high as some other guys.” His dad, Alan, agreed: &ldquo...

Archdeacon: ‘Joey ... Joey ... Joey’ finally connects and Dayton Flyers players, coaches, fans ‘loved it’
 With about six minutes to go Friday, the Flyers up on VCU by 26 and the UD Arena crowd rocking out over the unexpected bounty it had been given on this snowy, icy, otherwise foul night, the players at the end of the Dayton bench started to go through some clandestine contortions. They leaned back in their chairs, then nonchalantly stretched...

Archdeacon: Salar Family survives the fire … and the ice
 Fire and Ice. It’s a famous poem by Robert Frost. It’s been a real pain for Meghan Shaw. Meg, as she’s known, is a former college swimmer who is the general manager of Salar Restaurant and Lounge, a popular Oregon District destination at the corner of E. Fifth and Brown Street. On Christmas Eve, her boyfriend Brady Marinangeli...

Archdeacon: Layfield’s can-do spirit elevates Dayton Flyers
 After the game, JaVonna Layfield gave me an upraised middle finger. But it’s not what you think. • Yes, it was meant for all those — including herself early in her University of Dayton career — who thought she couldn’t cut it at UD. That she wasn’t college material in the classroom, wouldn’t excel...

Archdeacon: By any name, Wright State has a force in Love
 Double Love. Double digits. Whether it’s his name or his game, 6-foot-9, 265-pound Loudon Love has become a double double. Just before he got to Wright State from Geneva, Illinois, he changed his last name from Vollbrecht to Love. That’s the maiden name of Laura, his mom. It’s also the name of his grandpa, who became a father...

Archdeacon: Flyers may need their heads examined, Grant implies
 The Dayton Flyers need a shrink as much as they need a coach. At least that’s kind of what their coach, Anthony Grant, was saying after his team stumbled against under-manned Massachusetts, losing 62-60 on Saturday afternoon at UD Arena. “That’s the definition of insanity, right?” Grant asked rhetorically. “You...

Archdeacon: For Landers, Flyers, it’s all about ‘conquering the chaos’
 Anthony Grant heard it all game long. “From the beginning of the game to the end of the game, at halftime, you could hear his voice,” the University of Dayton coach said of Trey Landers following the Flyers’ 82-72 upset of St Bonaventure on Wednesday night at UD Arena. While Landers scored a career-high 17 points, had...

Archdeacon: One of Flyers’ best continues to give back
 One day Terry Williams and her husband David hope they can park their cars in the garage at their New Jersey home again. Right now they must leave them on the driveway or in the street. That’s because the building holds a vehicle far more valuable than anything they are driving. The Williams’ garage is the temporary home of SistaSoccer...

Archdeacon: WSU senior to coach: ‘I gotta hole in my hip!’
 Dr. Matt Lawless pulled the plunger back on the syringe, leaned down toward Grant Benzinger, who was lying flat on his back on a padded table in the Wright State training room at the Nutter Center, and went to work. “I’m gonna work my way all around this,” the team doctor said as he eased the hypodermic needle into Benzinger&rsquo...

Archdeacon: Area harness driver comes back ‘better and stronger’ after tragedy
 The call came a little after 5:30 on a cold, dark December morning. Fellow Lebanon trainer Sam Coven was on the line and he was frantic: “Kayne, it’s going!” “What’s going?” said Kayne Kauffman, still half-asleep. “Your barn!….Your barn is on fire!” A couple mornings ago, Kauffman quietly...

Tom Archdeacon: ‘Day to Dream’ brightens holiday for needy kids
 The Frericks Center has been home to some big-gasp moments over the years. Long ago — when the place was known as the UD Fieldhouse — some of the Dayton Flyers’ most stirring basketball victories happened there. These days the court hosts the perennially-powerful UD women’s volleyball team. Yet over the decades there...

Archdeacon: Ex-Carroll standout Schroeder fits perfectly at Sinclair
 The Wittenberg JV women’s basketball team can be glad she just dropped five 3-pointers, 11 of 18 field-goal attempts overall and all four of her free throws on them last week. She could have dropped a leg. “I can tell you a story,” Kim Schroeder offered. “She was in third grade and … “ “Oh no!&rdquo...

Archdeacon: Butler transfer set to resume her career with UD Flyers
 She remembers the coach just rolling his eyes. “It was an intramural basketball league for little kids — around 5 and 6 years old — and there was a rule that girls could be on the team, too,” Kesha Ward remembered. “The first day I brought Brittany to the gym and walked up to him and said, ‘Hey, this is...

Archdeacon: All eyes on Chelsea Welch, Wright State sensation
 It was a case of one star gushing about another: “We got to see her up close! She came right up to the glass in front of us and I feel like she has almost human instincts. She sees a camera and she smiles and she’ll twirl. She’s just so cute. I love her.” Just after Chelsea Welch and her Wright State teammates had...

Archdeacon: Wright State big man a true student-athlete
 As he sat in the Mills Morgan Center waiting for basketball practice to begin the other day, he was asked about the one glitch in his career. “I don’t like to think about it,” Parker Ernsthausen, Wright State’s 6-foot-11 center, said with a tiny shake of the head, then a slight smile. »WRIGHT STATE INSIDER: Golfer...

Archdeacon: ‘Surreal’ feeling for Nugent in return to Cincinnati
 After the game he still wasn’t quite sure of one thing: Were Cincinnati Bengals fans chanting “Nuuuuuge!” like they used to do when he played here for seven seasons? Or were they giving him a chorused “Booooo”? “I don’t know for sure, but I think it was ‘Booooo,’” Mike Nugent said...
