FAIRFAX, Va. (AP) - Ohio State transfer Jordan Sibert scored 19 points and Vee Sanford came off the bench to add 16 points 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 (28 of 51) of its field goal tries 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 at 19 with 10:10 left in the first half, but over the next 14 minutes, 16 seconds - 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. Dayton’s lead swelled to as many as 27 points later in the second half. Allen finished with 16 points for the Patriots while backcourt mate Sherrod Wright scored a team-high 18.

Matt Kavanaugh made 4-of-5 shots from the floor and finished with 14 points for Dayton, which improved to 10-0 this season when scoring 80 or more points.
