Fordham vs Dayton

Dayton 96, Fordham 51


DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - Kevin Dillard scored 22 points with eight assists as Dayton snapped a three-game losing streak, beating Fordham 96-51 Wednesday night.

The 45-point margin narrowly edged the Flyers' 88-44 win over Duquesne on Jan. 12, 2002 for the largest in Dayton's Atlantic 10 Conference history. The Flyers, who were averaging 20.7 turnovers during their three-game skid, had just eight giveaways Wednesday.

Dillard knocked down 5 of 6 3-pointers for Dayton (11-7, 1-3), which also got 19 points from Vee Sanford and 11 from Matt Derenbecker.

The Rams (5-14, 1-3) were without leading rebounder and second-leading scorer Chris Gaston, who had knee surgery in November. Gaston returned Dec. 15 and had played in the team's past nine games, but sat Wednesday due to the same injury, the team said.

Jeffrey Short netted 13 points for Fordham, which entered allowing 75.2 points per game, the most in the A-10.
