ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) -Marcus Johnson scored eight of his 16 points in overtime and hit the game winning shot with 32 seconds left as 8th-seeded Dayton held off 9th-seeded St. Louis 63-62 in a first-round Atlantic 10 Tournament game Wednesday.
Mickey Perry added 11 points and Andres Sandoval had 10 points and five assists for the Flyers (21-9), who now face No. 10 - and top-seeded - Xavier in a quarterfinal game Thursday. Dayton's leading scorer Brian Roberts, who came into the game averaging 19 points, was held to five, which tied his season-low.
Three St. Louis players combined to score all but six points of their team's points. Danny Brown had 24 points to lead the Billikens (16-15), while Tommie Liddell III added 21 and Kevin Lisch finished with 11.
Brown's three-point play with 50.3 seconds left in overtime gave St. Louis a 62-61 lead. Johnson, though, came back to score on a jumper in the lane, and Brown's left-wing jumper went off the front of the rim at the buzzer.
