He was sitting on the same bench that he sat more than a decade earlier at Anderson Arena, home of the Bowling Green State University Falcons.
Dials, a 2003 graduate of Willard High School, was a freshman playing in the regional basketball tournament. Sunday, Dials was at Anderson sitting on the bench with the Miami University Redhawks.
