    DAYTON, Ohio -- Chris Johnson scored 18 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to help Dayton hold off Central Connecticut State 63-61 on Tuesday night.

    The Flyers (7-2) trailed 29-23 at halftime after shooting just 7 of 22 in the first half (31.8 percent) and trailed by as many as 8, 52-44, with 6:23 left to play.

    A 9-0 run by the Flyers gave them a 1-point lead, 53-52, with 4:37 remaining and they led 61-59 with 52 seconds remaining.

    Josh Parker -- making his first career start for Dayton -- stepped to the free-throw line with 19 seconds left with a chance to give the Flyers a two-possession lead.

    Parker hit two free throws and Dayton held on for the 2-point victory after a missed jumper from Shemik Thompson as time expired.

    Markeys Deans led the Blue Devils (4-4) with 22 points and eight rebounds.
