UMass outlasts Dayton for 66-64 win

AMHERST, Mass. (AP) Cady Lalanne had 18 points, Trey Davis scored 15 including two free throws with 15 seconds left and Massachusetts beat Dayton 66-64 on Thursday night.

Davis' free throws gave UMass (11-9, 4-3 Atlantic 10) a 66-61 lead and Dayton's Darrell Davis hit a 3-pointer with 3.9 seconds left. Play was stopped for a few minutes after Trey Davis blasted head-first into a screen at midcourt and needed to be helped off the court.

Donte Clark then missed the front end of a 1-and-1 for UMass with 2.1 seconds left and Jabarie Hinds sealed the win, blocking Kendall Pollard's desperation heave.

Jordan Sibert had 19 points and Pollard added 12 for Dayton (16-4, 6-2), which twice had the ball down by three in the final two minutes.

The Flyers closed within 46-45 with 15 minutes left before the Minutemen pulled away with an 11-3 run over the next eight minutes.
