    DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Brian Roberts scored 14 points and Monty Scott added 10 to help Dayton beat Grambling State 59-55 on Saturday night.

    The Tigers led 31-28 at halftime and 48-47 with 6:21 left but they couldn't hold off the Flyers. Warren Williams converted a layup to start a 10-2 Dayton run that made it 57-50 Flyers with 1:37 left.

    Norman Plummer had eight points and 11 rebounds and Chris Alvarez had 13 boards for the Flyers (5-2), who outrebounded the Tigers 41-30.

    Brion Rush scored 30 points for Grambling State (2-2), which shot 35 percent from the field. The Eagles went 8-for-31 from 3-point range.

    Anthony Williams scored nine of his 14 points in the first half for Grambling State.

    Dayton shot 44 percent from the field and committed 19 turnovers.

    The Flyers missed all eight of their 3-point attempts after connecting on at least one 3 in 500 consecutive games. The last time Dayton did not have a 3-pointer in a game was in an 86-80 victory over Cincinnati on Jan. 29, 1989.
