Dayton cruises to 81-56 win over Florida Atlantic

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) Devin Oliver had 13 points and 14 rebounds and Jalen Robinson added a career-high 14 boards as Dayton pulled away from Florida Atlantic 81-56 Saturday night for its fourth straight victory.

Oliver, who posted his fourth double-double in a row, had seven offensive boards and Robinson grabbed six, equaling the Owls' total on the offensive glass. The Flyers (8-2) outrebounded Florida Atlantic 45-31.

Matt Derenbecker led Dayton with 15 points, Kevin Dillard had 14 and Vee Sanford 12.

Dillard scored six points in the first 1:53 en route to an 8-0 Flyers lead, but the Owls answered with a 12-0 run, with Greg Gantt contributing seven points.

The momentum then swung back to Dayton. After an 18-2 spurt, the Flyers maintained a double-digit cushion.

Gantt scored 26 points and Stefan Moody added 13 for the Owls (5-5), who ended their three-game winning streak in the first meeting between the programs.

Soto already helped give D.C. the greatest gift of all in a World Series title, so maybe he really is Mr. Claus.
