I actually don’t believe this. I was just trying to bust sjhawk13’s chops who was not even old enough to mop the floor at The Fieldhouse when the Hawks took the country by storm that year.Dayton. Seven days a week and twice on Sunday.
I think it is hard to compare. Dayton’s guards can defend, but Nelson and West were one of the best duos I have ever seen. Throw in Carroll’s shooting and it’s hard to say how Dayton stops them. But Toppin and Crutcher are one of a kind in a way also and I think that team is deeper and they have a lot of unheralded weapons. I don’t recall that as much on the hawks team, but it was a long time ago and memories fade.
When all is said and done, both teams can hang the same banner, A10 Regular Season Champions. I’d say they are even in my book.
