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.
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.
