DAYTON, Ohio (AP) – Senior Jordan Sibert had a career-high 24 points and the Flyers defeated Georgia Tech and their former coach Brian Gregory 75-61 on Tuesday night.

Dyshawn Pierre made all four of 3-point attempts and scored 19 points for the Flyers (9-2), who have won seven out of their last eight games.

Sibert scored 15 points and Pierre nine in the first half as the Flyers took a 39-33 lead at the break. After Georgia Tech scored the first five points of the second half, Dayton responded with a 12-0 run that included consecutive 3-pointers from Sibert. That put Dayton up by 13 points and its lead never dipped under double figures thereafter.

Marcus Georges-Hunt scored 13 points, Tadric Jackson 12 and Charles Mitchell had 10 points and 10 rebounds for the Yellow Jackets (8-3).

Gregory was the Flyers coach for eight years before he was succeeded by current coach Archie Miller, in his fourth season at Dayton. Gregory received a sustained ovation from the Dayton crowd.
