Description

The primary impetus behind the successful long-term relationship between the University of Dayton (UD) and the NCAA stems, arguably, from the work of UD's innovative former athletic director, Thomas Frericks. His vision, formulated in 1967, laid the foundation for a mid-sized city in Southwest Ohio to have a lasting impact on college basketball. This article examines Frericks' strategies, hard work, and dedication in making UD a popular repeat host of the NCAA Tournament games and provides lessons on how this model could be replicated in the future.
