Dayton vs Xavier

Xavier 66, Dayton 61

  •  

CINCINNATI (AP) - Dee Davis scored 14 points and hit a pair of key free throws late as Xavier held court against Atlantic 10 Conference-foe Dayton 66-61 Wednesday night.

The teams exchanged the lead four times in a 2-minute span late, ending with Xavier (12-8, 5-2) leading 62-61 on Semaj Christon's jumper with 59.4 second left.

The Flyers' Kevin Dillard missed a jumper and Xavier grabbed the rebound. Three times, Dayton sent the Musketeers to the foul line for one-and-ones. Xavier missed the first end on the first two trips, but grabbed the rebound and drew fouls after each whiff. Davis connected on both free throws after the third foul, and then Matt Derenbecker missed a 3-point try for Dayton to effectively end it.

Xavier has beaten Dayton (12-8, 2-4) at home 28 consecutive times dating back to 1981.

Vee Sanford scored 16 points and Dillard hit four 3-pointers for 12 points.
