Dayton ends losing streak by hammering UMass, 96-68

The Dayton Flyers came into Saturday night’s game with UMass trying put a halt on two losing streaks. First, was a current 2-game streak losing at Duquesne and Temple last week. Second, was a 4-game skid to the Minutemen dating back to 2005.

In order to accomplish both of those goals, the Flyers would have to slow down UMass, stop high-scoring guard Ricky Harris, the Atlantic 10′s second leading scorer at 19.3 ppg and outrebound the number 1 team in the conference in rebounding. They accomplished all three of those goals: holding UMass to only 68 points; shutting down Ricky Harris, only 9 points on 3 0f 15 shooting and outrebounding the visitors, 44-30, 14 of them on the offensive glass.

A sellout crowd of 13, 435 cheered the Flyers on to a 96-68 victory and win number 19 of the season. Those 96 points are the most scored at Dayton in Brian Gregory’s tenure as head coach.

Backup point guard Mickey Perry led 6 Dayton players in double figures with five, 3-point baskets. Chris Wright had 14, Rob Lowery with 13, Marcus Johnson and Chris Johnson scored 11 each and Devin Searcy put in 10.

Dayton led at the half, 43-31. But the early part of the second half, it looked as if Dayton and its bench depth was going to run away with the game. The Flyers came and pushed the tempo and upped the lead to 19, 54-35. However the game was not over.

The referees started to call ever close bump and anything close to it. UMass went on a 15-4 run to cut the lead down to 58-50 and with 12:40 to go in the game, they had Dayton in team foul trouble with 10 fouls to 2.

After a media timeout at the 11:25 mark, the Flyers and Mickey Perry went to work to put the game away. Perry hit four, 3-point goals to fuel a 28-10 run which made the score 86-60. During that run, Dayton pushed the ball up the floor, took good shots, most of the time they weren’t guarded and they played defense and rebounded the ball.

Dayton shot the ball well all night, 57% in the first half, 52.9% in the second half and 54.8% for the game. Dayton out scored UMass in the hustle stats: 34-24 in the paint, 28-9 on the fast break and 48-22 in bench scoring.

Massachusetts now has its own losing streak to deal with as they’ve dropped three in a row and are now 10-18, 4-10 in the Atlantic 10.

Its hard to believe this is the same UMass team that has had some great players like Julius Erving, Marcus Camby, Lorenzo Sutton, Lou Roe, Edgar Padilla, Carmelo Traviaso and Monty Mack. Not to mention top-notch coaches like Jack Leaman and John Calipari. This team even beat Memphis 73-72 back on December 19.

Mickey Perry (UD)

The Minutemen were led by Terrell Vinson with 16 points followed by 12 from Freddie Riley and 10 each for Anthony Gurley and Sampson Carter.

The series is now tied at 8-8.
