MEMPHIS – Jordan Sibert scored 18 points to lead No. 11-seed Dayton to an NCAA South Regional victory over No. 10-seed Stanford, 82-72. Kendall Pollard and Devin Oliver each scored 12 points and Matt Kavanaugh added 10.
Once Kavanaugh’s layup put Dayton ahead 20-19 with 9:33 left in the first half, the Flyers never trailed again.
