ISU Hosts No. 25 Dayton Saturday

Redbirds play second Top 25 team of season


WMBD/WYZZ-TV - NORMAL, Ill - When Illinois State plays No. 25 Dayton on Saturday, the Redbirds will do something that hasn't been done in Normal in a quarter-century.

The last time ISU played two ranked non-conference teams in the same season was 1987. The Redbirds opened this season at 14th-ranked VCU.

"It's not easy to get them to come in but we've been fortunate to schedule a VCU and a Dayton," ISU coach Dan Muller said. "Their programs are on the rise. I want to play tough teams, I want our fans to enjoy tough games. We certainly hope to be there at some point. We need to know what it looks like and we need to have the opportunity to win these games. If you don't play them, you can't win them."

The Redbirds (4-4) carry a season-high three-game win streak into the game against the Flyers (7-1).

"They score at a high rate, they guard, they've won some big games already, they play fast, it'll be an exciting game to watch," said Muller. "But it's a great opportunity for us, a challenge but a great opportunity."

Tip-off is at 7 p.m. at Redbird Arena.
