Dayton Flyers in Final Four of NIT Tournament
Dayton Flyers in Final Four of NIT Tournament in New York City
While the NCAA basketball tournament is going on there is more March Madness in that the NIT (National Invitational Tournament) is also taking place and the Flyers of The University of Dayton have made it to the final four.
The NIT always makes me think of my mother's brother's family. Uncle Shorty (Lawrence Dapore) was a rabid Flyers fan. Several of his children attended the University of Dayton and Uncle Shorty's one daughter was a cheerleader in the early '60s for the Dayton Flyers. My family would get a kick out of watching the Flyers play on local television and getting to see Uncle Shorty's daughter, Judy Dapore, cheer for the UD team.
