FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - Jordan Sibert scored 19 points and Vee Sanford came off the bench to add 16 as Dayton dominated George Mason 84-67 Wednesday night, extending the Patriots misery in their first season in the Atlantic 10.
Sibert hit 8 of 11 from the floor to lead Dayton (15-8, 3-5) which made 55 percent from the floor and held George Mason to 40-percent shooting. It was the ninth straight loss for the Patriots (7-15, 0-8).
The score was tied midway through the first half, but over the next 14:16, which would bridge the halves, Dayton held George Mason to one field goal and outscored the Patriots 30-6.
Before Bryon Allen hit a 3-pointer 3 minutes after the break, the Patriots trailed 49-25, and Dayton led by as many as 27 points in the second half. Allen finished with 16 points for the Patriots while backcourt mate Sherrod Wright scored 18.
