KINGSTON, R.I. (AP) - Darrell Davis made a go-ahead 3-pointer from the corner with 21.1 seconds left and No. 19 Dayton beat Rhode Island 68-66 on Friday night.

Rhode Island’s Four McGlynn missed a 3-pointer with 4 seconds left. Dayton got the rebound, and Steve McElvene made one of two free throws for the Flyers with 0.3 seconds to go.

Dyshawn Pierre led Dayton (21-3, 11-1 Atlantic 10) with 17 points and also had nine rebounds. Scoochie Smith added 16 points, and Davis finished with eight for the Flyers, who won their ninth straight game.

NO. 17 ARIZONA 81, UCLA 75

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Allonzo Trier scored 15 of his 18 points in the second half, Parker Jackson-Cartwright added 16 points and Arizona held off UCLA.

Arizona (20-5, 8-4 Pac-12) stumbled through a lackluster first half at both ends to trail by 10. The Wildcats tightened up defensively in the second and took advantage of UCLA’s foul trouble to wear down the Bruins.

UCLA (13-11, 4-7) had centers Thomas Welsh and Tony Parker foul out in a span of 42 seconds late in the second half and Arizona took advantage by pounding the ball inside.

Kaleb Tarczewski and Ryan Anderson combined for 27 rebounds, and Arizona made 29 of 45 free throws in the foul-filled game.

Isaac Hamilton scored 24 points and Bryce Alford had 17 for UCLA.

ARIZONA STATE 74, NO. 23 USC 67

Tra Holder scored 20 points, Savon Goodman added 17 and Arizona State knocked off USC.

Nikola Jovanovic had 25 points and 15 rebounds for the Trojans (18-6, 8-4 Pac-12), who would have been within a half-game of first-place Oregon in the Pac-12 with a victory. Gerry Blakes added 14 for Arizona State.

The Sun Devils (14-11, 4-8) have won two conference games in a row for the first time this season.

Arizona State took the lead with a 10-2 run to start the second half and never trailed again.
