Dayton Can't Close Upset of Baylor - Looses 67-66

Baylor led Dayton for a little more than 16 seconds in the second half Tuesday night. They were the right 16 seconds. Cory Jefferson had a go-ahead putback in the waning moments and the 18th-ranked Bears rallied for a 67-66 victory in the semifinals of the Maui Invitational. "We led 1-zip and we finished leading by one," Baylor coach Scott Drew said. "Everything else was chasing Dayton." After trailing nearly the entire game, Baylor (6-0) whittled away a 10-point deficit over the final seven minutes. The Bears were down by one when Kenny Chery missed a jumper off the front of the rim, but Jefferson was all alone for the rebound and his layup gave Baylor a 67-66 lead with 16 seconds to go. Vee Sanford missed a contested shot in close for Dayton with two seconds left, Devin Oliver's tip-in attempt bounced off the rim and Baylor grabbed the rebound as the final buzzer sounded. Dayton will play California in the third-place game.
