NCAA Game Summary - Baylor vs. Dayton



(Tuesday, November 26th)

Final Score: (18) Baylor 67, Dayton 66

Maui, HI (SportsNetwork.com) - Cory Jefferson's putback layup with 16.4 seconds remaining lifted No. 18 Baylor to a hard-fought, 67-66, victory over Dayton on Tuesday in the semifinals of the Maui Invitational from Lahaina Civic Center.

Baylor trailed 59-49 with 7:26 remaining, but used a 16-7 swing to pull within one on Gary Franklin's right wing 3-pointer with 1:22 on the clock.

After Devin Oliver missed from in close on Dayton's next possession, Kenny Chery came up short on a right baseline jumper, but Jefferson corralled the rebound and finished the layup to give Baylor its first lead since the opening minute of the contest.

Following a series of timeouts with 12.8 seconds left, Vee Sanford made his way to the left block, but missed a fadeaway shot and Oliver's tip-in try rimmed out as well to end the Flyers' upset bid.

"I don't know how I missed it," Oliver said of his tip-in try.

Royce O'Neale and Chery each netted 13 points, while Isaiah Austin, Jefferson and Franklin finished with 10 points apiece for the Bears (6-0), who extended their winning streak to 11 games, the longest active streak in the nation.

"We just wanted to be tough," Chery said. "Our mental toughness was in question as a team, so we just wanted to stay together, be tough and try to pull one out and that's what we did."

Baylor will take on No. 8 Syracuse in Wednesday's title game.

Jordan Sibert paced Dayton (5-1) with 20 points, while Oliver added 14 points, six rebounds and five assists for the Flyers, who will face California in a consolation game on Wednesday.

Dayton built its first double-digit lead of the game on back-to-back buckets from Sanford just over nine minutes in that gave the Flyers a 20-10 edge.

An Oliver trey with just under five minutes left in the half had the margin at 14, but Baylor netted the final nine points of the frame to pull within 33-28 at the break.

Dayton opened the second half on an 8-2 surge to push the margin back above double digits, which is where it stood after Sanford drilled a triple with just under 7 1/2 minutes remaining in the contest.
