In The Region:

After two upset wins last week in the NCAA men’s basketball playoffs, the University of Dayton Flyers are headed to Memphis to take on Stanford in the Sweet Sixteen on Thursday.

People are pretty psyched about Dayton’s first Sweet Sixteen game in 30 years—

UD lovers are raining love and cash on this year’s so-called Cinderella team.

Kaila Taton is the marketing manager for the Flyer Spirit store. She says they sold out of 600 Sweet Sixteen t-shirts in an hour Monday, and have thousands more on order.

Taton says, "We’ve have a lot of people in the store, it’s never been a moment where there hasn’t been someone in the store."

And a local travel agent, Ideal Travel, is offering a package bus trip from Dayton for about 800 bucks apiece.

But owner Leslie Gagne says there’s a key element not included in that package, and, "The big challenge is the fact that we deal in just travel, not in game tickets."

Actual tickets to the game in Memphis are the hottest commodity—prices for resales on StubHub range from 42 bucks up into the thousands.
