The Ole Miss Rebels got off to a hot start early in the game and led 44-36 at the half. The Rebels shot 56 percent from the floor and knocked down 7-of-15 shots from the three-point line in the opening half.

But the Flyers, behind a stifling defensive effort in the second half, the University of Dayton Flyers rallied from a 16-point deficit to defeat the Mississippi Rebels 78-71 in overtime in Oxford, Mississippi.

Chris Johnson led the Dayton attack with a double-double of 20 points and 11 rebounds. Josh Parker added 18 points and Josh Benson matched his career-high with 10 points off the bench.

Juwan Staten dished out eight assists and had five points to help the Flyers improve to 3-0 overall and pick up their first road win of the season.

This is the third time in coach Brian Gregory’s tenure that Dayton has started the season 3-0. The previous two seasons, 2003-2004 and 2008-2009, UD played in the NCAA Tournament.

In a rematch of the NIT semifinal from last season, Dayton never led through regulation and trailed by 16 early in the second half but mounted a furious comeback.

The Flyers tightened up on the defensive end and held Ole Miss to 30 percent shooting from the floor and 0-for-10 in the second half from three-point range.

In overtime, the Flyers took command with Staten and Parker taking control.

Dayton’s ability to hit free throws, 79 percent (26-of-33) aided in the comeback.
