FULLERTON, Calif. (AP) - Charles Cooke scored 20 points and Scoochie Smith added 17 as Dayton cruised to an 84-74 victory over Portland on Friday in the Wooden Legacy Tournament.

Five players scored in double figures for Dayton (3-2), which advanced to the fifth-place game against New Mexico on Sunday in Anaheim.

The Flyers scored inside the paint early and often and shot the ball well from long range, making 10 of 22 3-pointers.

Alex Wintering scored a game-high 31 points - including 15 from the free-throw line - and added eight assists but also had eight turnovers for Portland.

Portland (3-2) won three games in a row to start the season before falling to No. 14 UCLA and Dayton in the tournament. Portland plays Cal State Northridge in the seventh-place game on Sunday.

Portland outrebounded Dayton 34-27 and cut the lead to three points early in the second half but that’s as close as it would get the rest of the way.
