Dayton came out with another efficient effort on the offensive end and a smothering defense throughout the game. The Flyers shot 48 percent from the floor for the the second consecutive game and went 8-of-18 from 3-point range.

Although the athletic Flyers were outrebounded by Illinois, they limited the Illini to 6-of-23 shooting from three-point land and 37 percent from the field.

Midway through the first half, Dayton started to separate themselves with an early run. UD led 29-11 after two 3-point goals from Luke Fabrizius. During the game’s opening 12 minutes, Dayton shot 71 percent from beyond the arc.

Says Dayton Head coach Brian Gregory, “Our seniors did a good job of sticking with it and hanging tough and we needed that. We played with great energy and intensity today and I thought that was the difference in the game.  I’m really pleased with the opportunity to go to New York. The University of Dayton has had tremendous success playing in the NIT and I know our guys set the goal two weeks ago to get back to New York.”
