Darrell Davis hits late 3, scores 12 points to lead Dayton to a 51-44 win over St. Louis


ST. LOUIS — Darrell Davis scored 12 points, including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 3:08 to play, and Dayton held off St. Louis 51-44 on Tuesday night.

Kendall Pollard had 11 points and 10 rebounds, Dyshawn Pierre added eight and 11 and Jordan Sibert was 4 for 4 from the free throw line in the final 40 seconds for Dayton (18-5, 8-3 Atlantic-10).

St. Louis (10-14, 2-9) took a 44-41 lead with 4:01 left, but a pair of free throws by Pollard and, after a stop on the other end, a Davis 3 gave Dayton a two-point lead about a minute later.

The Billikens turned it over five times in the final 2:28, including their next three possessions, and missed their last five field goal attempts as Dayton closed the game on a 10-0 run.

Sibert, Dayton's leading scorer at 16.5 per game, played just 19 minutes due to foul trouble and finished with eight points.

Ash Yacoubou led St. Louis with 12 points.
