DAYTON, OH – In their home arena – if not their home uniforms or on their normal floor – Jordan Sibert’s three-pointer gave Dayton the lead late and the Flyers managed to hang on to defeat Boise State 56-55 in the final First Four game at UD Arena.
The win is Dayton’s 22nd straight in their own building. Kendall Pollard led the way for Dayton with 17 points, but it was Sibert’s clutch shot that stole the show.
Derrick Marks led all scorers with 23 points for the Broncos, but he couldn’t get a clean look in the closing seconds as he leaned in on a long-range attempt to win it at the buzzer.
Brandon Gaudin and Alaa Abdelnaby called the action on Westwood One Sports.
