Jones hits clutch 3s, Penn holds off Dayton 78-70

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) Sam Jones, who took all his shots from 3-point range, sank a pair of key 3s late in the game as Penn held off a surge by Dayton to defeat the Flyers 78-70 on Saturday.

Dayton had made a six-point push to draw within 62-61 on a John Crosby layup, prompting a Penn timeout with 4:30 remaining. After the huddle, Jones hit a clutch trey, and then another to make it 68-63. Penn made eight of 10 free throws down the stretch.

Jones scored a season-high 15 points, his first game in double figures this season, making 5 of 6 shots. Antonio Woods scored 17 to lead Penn (8-4), Ryan Betley added 14 and Darnell Foreman 12. The Quakers had 20 assists on 26 made baskets led by AJ Brodeur with seven.

Dayton (4-5) cut the gap to 74-68 on a Crosby 3-pointer with one minute left, but the Flyers missed four times from distance in the last 48 seconds. Josh Cunningham scored 21 points with eight rebounds, while Crosby added 15 points for Dayton.
