DAYTON (AP) — Kevin Dillard scored 22 points with eight assists as Dayton snapped a three-game losing streak, beating Fordham 96-51 Wednesday night.
The 45-point margin narrowly edged the Flyers’ 88-44 win over Duquesne on Jan. 12, 2002 for the largest in Dayton’s Atlantic 10 Conference history. The Flyers, who were averaging 20.7 turnovers during their three-game skid, had just eight giveaways Wednesday.

Jeffrey Short netted 13 points for Fordham, which entered allowing 75.2 points per game, the most in the A-10.
