    DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Gary Forbes scored 23 points and Massachusetts never trailed in a 77-69 win over Dayton on Sunday.

    Stephane Lasme added 14 points and Rashaun Freeman chipped in with 15 for Massachusetts (19-7, 9-3 Atlantic 10). Both had 12 rebounds.

    The loss snapped Dayton's 14-game home winning streak. Brian Roberts led the Flyers (16-9, 6-6) with 25 points, and Charles Little added 21 points and 10 rebounds.

    Massachusetts led by as much as 15 points in the first half, but Dayton narrowed the deficit to 31-25 at halftime. However, a layup from Freeman and a 3-pointer from Forbes gave Massachusetts an 11-point advantage within the first minute of the second half.

    Forbes was 8-of-16 shooting, making four of seven 3-point attempts. Massachusetts shot 41 percent (26-of-63) overall and was 18-of-29 at the free throw line.

    Dayton shot 49 percent (26-of-58) and made seven of 18 foul shot attempts. Massachusetts outrebounded Dayton 47-35.
