Dayton hands Tech first loss of season

ATLANTA (AP) - Devin Oliver and Jordan Sibert each scored 20 points, Vee Sanford added 15 and Dayton beat Georgia Tech 82-72 on Wednesday night.

Dayton (4-0) maximized its chances on Georgia Tech's 19 miscues to outscore the Yellow Jackets 33-6 on turnovers.

Daniel Miller finished with 20 points and Marcus Georges-Hunt had 16 for Georgia Tech (3-1).

Sibert, a junior transfer from Ohio State, began his career at Dayton with a buzzer-beating 3 that gave the Flyers a victory over Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne in the opener.

Over the last seven seasons, the Flyers have won 20 of their last 39 games against major conferences. Beating Georgia Tech gave Dayton, which plays in the Atlantic 10, five straight wins over Atlantic Coast Conference opponents.
