Clifton Moore hit an 18-foot jumper with 2.5 seconds left to lift La Salle to a 67-65 victory at Dayton.
It’s the first Explorers win over Dayton at UD Arena in 21 years (February 27, 1999) and snapped the Flyers’ 20-game A-10 winning streak.
With the game tied at 65, sophomore Ayinde Hikim drove the lane and passed to Moore on the left wing. Moore took one dribble and hit the game winner. The Explorers then stole the ensuing inbounds.
Sherif Kenney had 14 points off the bench to lead La Salle (4-5, 1-1 A-10). Jack Clark had 12 points and Jhamir Brickus added 11. Moore had nine points and 10 rebounds.
