Dayton beat Boise State 56-55 tonight to advance to the first round proper of the NCAA tournament, but Boise State and their fans will spend the next couple of weeks believing they were jobbed.

Ebony Gainey joined the University of Dayton women's basketball team four years ago but had never played in a game until this past Saturday, when the Flyers wrapped up their regular season with a 69-51 victory over Fordham.
