DAYTON 78, RICHMOND 74
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Kevin Dillard scored 21 points and Devin
Oliver recorded his second straight double-double to lead Dayton
to a 78-74 win over Richmond on Saturday.
Oliver finished with 19 points and 10 rebounds for the Flyers
(16-12, 6-8 Atlantic 10 Conference), who have won two in a row.
Dayton led the majority of the first half and never trailed
after halftime, but had a tough time holding off the Spiders.
The Flyers had a seven-point advantage midway through the second
half, then had their lead trimmed to 60-59 when Richmond's
Cedrick Lindsay made a free throw with 6:11 left.
But the Spiders (17-12, 7-7) were unable to tie or pull ahead.
Dayton's Josh Benson and Dyshawn Pierre each followed with a
free throw, then Dillard converted a three-point play to push
the Flyers lead to six and hold on.
Lindsay had 22 points and seven assists for Richmond.
