ILLINOIS ST 74, DAYTON 73
DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Jackie Carmichael scored 25 points and
grabbed 12 rebounds as Illinois State held off Dayton 74-73
The Redbirds (8-3) led 74-67 with 1:59 to go, but the Flyers
scored six straight points, capped by Devin Oliver's layup with
35 seconds left.
After Illinois State's Johnny Hill missed a free throw with 29
seconds remaining, Dayton (8-3) set up for the final shot.
Oliver missed a 3-point attempt with 2 seconds left and teammate
Khari Price rebounded, but his one-handed push shot would not
fall at the buzzer.
Price was in for leading scorer Kevin Dillard, who left the game
with 4:19 to go due to back spasms.
Tyler Brown added 16 points and Jon Ekey 13 for the Redbirds,
who led by 12 points early, but fell behind by four with 9:56 to
go before regaining the advantage.
Dillard and Dyshawn Pierre led Dayton with 14 points apiece.
