Dayton Flyers crush Winthrop in rare New Year’s Day game, 81-47

DAYTON, Ohio – A balanced scoring attack lifted the University of Dayton Flyers men’s basketball team to an 81-47 win over the Winthrop Eagles on Wednesday afternoon at UD Arena. The Flyers improved their record to 11-3, while Winthrop drops to 6-6.

Jalen Robinson and Khari Price led five Flyers in double-figures with 11 points each. Price scored nine of his 11 points in the first half off of three 3-pointers while Robinson scored nine second-half points. Devin Oliver, Devon Scott and Vee Sanford each added 10 points for UD.

Dayton led wire-to-wire as they jumped out to a 12-4 lead with 15:44 remaining in the first half after a Price three. Winthrop responded by going on a 12-6 run over the next five minutes and 43 seconds to cut the UD lead to just 18-16. This would be the closest the Eagles would get for the rest of the game as the Flyers closed the half on a 23-12 run to take a 41-28 halftime lead.

UD controlled the second half as their lead continued to grow. Three separate 9-0 runs in the second half helped propel the Flyers to a 34-point victory, their largest of the season.

The Flyers shot a red-hot 59.3% (32-of-54) from the field for the game while holding Winthrop to 37.0% (17-of-46). Dayton also shot 7-of-13 (53.8%) from beyond the arc, including 6-of-8 (75.0%) in the first half, while Winthrop shot just 5-of-16 (31.3%) from the three.

Dayton big men collectively had a big game as the Flyers dominated Winthrop in points in the paint (46-12) and rebounds (37-23). UD’s four-man center-by-committee of Robinson, Scott, Alex Gavrilovic and Matt Kavanaugh combined for 27 point and 15 rebounds. Dayton also held an advantage in bench points (36-24) and fast break points (16-7).

UD is now 4-1 all-time on New Year’s Day and 10-0 all-time against Big South squads. Dayton is also 2-0 on the season when five Flyers score in double-figures and 6-0 when at least four Flyers score in double-figures.

Dayton improved its record to 7-0 when scoring 80 points or more and 6-0 when holding the opponent to less than 60 points.

The Flyers are back in action on Saturday Jan. 4 as they travel to Oxford, MS to take on the Ole Miss Rebels in their final non-conference game. Tip-off is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET and can be viewed locally on WHIO-TV. The game will also be televised regionally on Comcast Sports South and live video streamed nationally on ESPN3 and the Watch ESPN app.

Suffocating defense helps Arkansas Men’s Basketball to win over High Point, 89-48

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – The holiday break didn’t slow down the Arkansas men’s basketball team’s #Fastest40 style of play, as the Razorbacks set season-highs with 25 forced turnovers and 17 steals on Saturday night in a wire-to-wire 89-48 win over High Point at Bud Walton Arena.

The top team in the SEC in turnover margin each of the last two seasons and leading the way again this year, Arkansas has forced four of its opponents during its current six-game win streak into more or equal turnovers than made field goals as it now stands at 10-2 on the season. The win completed just the third unbeaten home calendar year in Bud Walton Arena history and moved Arkansas’ home win streak to 22 games, the fourth-longest in the country.

“That was a very complete performance by our guys from start to finish,” said head coach Mike Anderson, who is now 18-1 at Arkansas when his team forced 20+ turnovers. “I put three words on the board before these guys came out and one of them was ‘stops.’ We started that game off with around seven multiple stops. That really ignited our defense and they were everywhere.”

A majority of those stops came via the aforementioned 17 steals, as the Razorbacks turned the 25 High Point miscues into a commanding 36-10 edge in points off turnovers and 46-14 margin in points in the paint. The Panthers managed just nine field goals in each half compared to double-digit turnovers in each frame, finishing with a 38 percent (18-48) clip from the field.

The frontcourt trio of freshmen Bobby Portis and Moses Kingsley along with senior Coty Clarke led five Razorbacks in double figures. Both Portis and Kingsley fell a rebound shy of their second career double-doubles, adding 16 and 12 points, respectively. Clarke chipped in 11 points, as the trio combined for 39 points and 20 rebounds. Portis has now reached double figures in eight consecutive games.

Sophomores Michael Qualls and Anthlon Bell rounded out the double figures with 12 and 11 points, respectively. Qualls has now reached double-digits in 11 of 12 games, while Arkansas’ balanced attacked has produced five double figure scorers in a game four times this season and at least three in every contest.

For the sixth time this season, the Razorbacks shot over 50 percent from the field, hitting 34-of-66 (52 percent) and 14-of-17 (82 percent) from the free throw line. Adding to its offensive efficiency, Arkansas was able to corral 15 offensive rebounds and turn them into 27 second chance points while also handing out 22 assists on its 34 made field goals. It marked the third time during the six-game win streak that the Razorbacks have passed out 20+ assists, as coach Anderson improved to 78-1 all-time when doing so.

Arkansas’ signature #Fastest40 style of play paid big dividends early, as the Razorbacks forced six High Point turnovers in the first six minutes to jump out to a 13-2 lead. Clarke and Portis combined for the first nine points of the fast start that helped the Razorbacks not trail for the entire 40 minutes for the fourth time this year.

The double figure lead stuck over the final 32:17 of the game, as 12 of 14 players who entered the game scored to help the Razorbacks registered their third 40-point win of the season.

High Point was led by Devante Wallace’s 13 points, while redshirt sophomore John Brown – the Big South Preseason Player of the Year – was limited to nine points and five rebounds, which is well below his season averages of 18.7 points and 8.1 rebounds entering the contest.

Arkansas will close out the non-conference portion of its schedule on Saturday, January 4, when it hosts UTSA at Bud Walton Arena. Tip is slated for 7:05 p.m.
