East Tennessee State stops Dayton’s home court non-conference winning streak

The Dayton Flyers 40-home game winning streak against non-conference opponents was snapped in a recent 73-68 loss to a good East Tennessee State team coach by Murray Bartow. Dayton’s last conference loss was to Vanderbilt on December 30, 2005, 63-60.

The Flyers saw their record fall to 5-2 overall after suffering their second straight loss of the season.

The Buccaneers, who have made two consecutive NCAA appearances, improve to 3-2 on the season, after picking up their first road win of the season.

Junior Chris Johnson led UD with 15 points, but senior Chris Wright set a career-high with 15 rebounds on his way to a double-double to go with his 13 points. Freshman Juwan Staten with 14 points and Paul Williams with 11 points also scored in double figures for Dayton.

ETSU senior Justin Tubbs led all scorers in the game with 26 points. The Bucs shot 47.9 percent from the field, including 40.9 from three-point range, while Dayton shot just 33.3 percent.

Despite a slow start in the game, Dayton came back to lead 38-33 at the half.

ETSU was up 17-3 with 14:54 to go in the first half  and 22-8 then went cold. The Flyers took advantage to go on an 18-0 run to go up 26-22 with 7:54 to go. The lead expanded to 36-27 on a fast break layup by Staten with 4:17 left until the break.
