Trey Landers knew how to get through the defense during his four years on the basketball squad at the University of Dayton. Landers opened 81 of his 101 career games with the Flyers, averaging 9.4 PPG, 6.0 RPG and 1.9 APG. As a senior during the 2019-20 campaign, he posted 10.5 PPG and a career-high 6.9 RPG while earning third team All-Atlantic 10 honors. He was named the Chris Daniels Memorial Most Improved Player twice during his career. Former Dayton teammate Obi Toppin said about Landers: “Trey is our glue guy. Everything Trey does on the court helps us tremendously just because he does the dirty work. He does the things nobody else on the court is gonna do, like getting 50-50 balls, the tough rebounds, all the things everybody doesn’t do, he does. And he’s an amazing leader on and off the court. He’s smart with everything he does, and he pushes everybody to be the best man they can be.” Trey Landers led Wayne High School in suburban Dayton to a Division I state championship as a junior in 2015 and was a first team All-Ohio selection as a senior, generating 16.4 PPG, 7.3 RP and 3.5 APG. His brother, Robert, played defensive tackle at Ohio State.
