    AKRON, Ohio -- Charles Little's dunk with 1:56 left gave Dayton the lead and Chris Johnson hit two foul shots with 3 seconds left to preserve it in the Flyers' 54-50 victory over Akron on Saturday night.

    Brett McKnight's 3-pointer with 3:45 remaining gave Akron (5-3) a 50-47 lead. A foul shot by London Warren and two by Kurt Huelsman tied it before an Akron miss led to Little's dunk that put the Fliers (8-0) ahead to stay.

    The Zips missed their last three shots from the field and had two turnovers. Johnson accounted for half his points when he made two free throws to put the game out of reach in the 7-0 run at the end.

    Chris Wright had 18 points for Dayton, which shot just 34 percent from the field and was only 1 of 16 on 3-pointers.

    Anthony Hitchens scored 17 points and Jimmy Conyers had 10 for Dayton, which shot 25 percent from the field.
