Davis leads Dayton to 79-65 win over Ohio
CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Darrell Davis scored a career high 25 points and Josh Cunningham had 18 points and 19 rebounds as Dayton defeated Ohio 79-65 at the Charleston Classic on Friday night.
The Flyers (2-1) will face Old Dominion Sunday for fifth-place at the eight-team tournament. The Bobcats (1-2) will play Indiana State in the seventh-place game right before.
Dayton won the matchup of Ohio schools that had not played one another since the 1965 NCAA Tournament. Davis and Cunningham helped the Flyers build a double-digit lead midway through the second half that Ohio could not dent.
Davis hit three of Dayton’s 10 3-pointers. If there were any misses, the 6-foot-7 Cunningham was there to get them.
Jordan Dartis had 19 points for Ohio.
Dayton’s Kostas Antetokounmpo, the 6-10 freshman brother of “Greek Freak” Gianis, had four points, three rebounds and three blocks in 13 minutes.
