The number 11 seed Dayton Flyers are going to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1984 and nobody was happier than the school’s president. On Saturday night the University of Dayton defeated 3-seed Syracuse by the score of 55-53. The school’s students celebrated the huge upset win by reveling down Kiefaber Street including Dan Curran, the school’s president. The party swelled to more than 1,000 students, but it was Curran crowd surfing down the river of Dayton students that was the highlight of the post-game celebration.
