Dayton vs Massachusetts

Massachusetts 55, Dayton 50


AMHERST, Mass. (AP) - Anthony Gurley scored 10 of his 15 points from the foul line as Massachusetts rallied on the free-throw line in a 55-50 win over Dayton on Sunday.

The Minutemen (9-5, 1-0 Atlantic 10 Conference) were 29 of 36 from the line (80.6 percent), overcoming bad shooting performances by both teams.

UMass shot 27.3 percent from the field (12 of 44), while the Flyers (13-4, 1-1) made just 16 of 56 shots (28.6 percent). The Minutemen's 55 points were their fewest in a win since a 53-50 victory over Saint Louis on Feb. 24, 2007. They also held Dayton to the lowest shooting percentage of an opponent this season.

The Flyers pulled within two, 44-42, with 3:24 left, but Gurley hit a 3 and Javorn Farrell made a three-point play to help the Minutemen pull away with 47 seconds left.

Paul Williams had 12 points for Dayton, which saw its six-game winning streak snapped.
