Darrell Davis made a go-ahead three-pointer from the corner with 21.1 seconds left and No. 19 Dayton beat Rhode Island, 68-66, on Friday night in Kingston, R.I.

Rhode Island’s Four McGlynn missed a three-pointer with 4 seconds left. Dayton got the rebound, and Steve McElvene made one of two free throws for the Flyers with 0.3 seconds to go.

Dyshawn Pierre led Dayton (21-3, 11-1 Atlantic 10) with 17 points and also had nine rebounds. Scoochie Smith added 16 points, and Davis finished with eight.

The Flyers won their ninth straight game and ended a six-game losing streak in Kingston.


McGlynn had 19 points for Rhode Island (14-11, 6-6). Hassan Martin added 15 points and 10 rebounds.

There were 17 lead changes, three in the final 55 seconds.

Pierre made two free throws with 55 seconds left to give the Flyers a one-point lead. Martin countered for the Rams with a three-point play 40 seconds left.

Yale 75, at Dartmouth 65: Makai Mason scored 25 points and Justin Sears finished with 21 points 13 rebounds to lead the Bulldogs to their 11th straight victory.



The Mountain West Conference reversed course Friday and said a last-second 3-pointer by James Webb III should have counted and given Boise State an 87-84 overtime victory over Colorado State.

The conference said the officials did make the right call Wednesday night with the evidence they were viewing on the replays. However, the angle they were using from a baseline camera was playing at a slower speed when aired by television and ingested by the replay system. So, the embedded stopwatch outpaced the video and led to a false reading.
