Rhode Island defeats Dayton 88-74, pushes win streak to 10

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) Jared Terrell scored 24 points and E.C. Matthews added 17 as Rhode Island battled past Dayton 88-74 before a sellout crowd on Saturday, extending its win streak to 10 games, including all seven Atlantic 10 contests this season.

Matthews scored 10 of his 17 points in a bruising first half when the teams battled through five lead changes and three ties. Matthews scored twice as Rhode Island ended the half making four if its last five shots to lead 50-43, and his 3-pointer just 16 seconds into the second half gave the Rams a 10-point lead that Dayton never overcame.

Dayton turned the ball over three times as Rhode Island rallied at the end of the first half, then five more in the first five minutes of the second half. The Rams scored 24 points off 21 Dayton's turnovers.

The Flyers came as close as 55-51 when Josh Cunningham scored on the fast break and Jalen Crutcher followed with a drive.

Terrell answered with a 3-pointer and scored the next seven points as Rhode Island pulled away. The win is the first time Rhode Island has won by double digits in Dayton and the 10-game win streak is its longest since the 1987-88 season when Rhode Island made the Sweet 16.

Cunningham led the Flyers with a career-high 32 points with 12 rebounds. Darrell Davis added 11 points.
