Dayton upsets No. 11 Gonzaga 84-79 in Maui

Posted: Updated:

LAHAINA, Hawaii -- Jordan Sibert scored 23 points, Dyshawn Pierre hit four free throws with less than 30 seconds left and Dayton rallied to knock off No. 11 Gonzaga 84-79 in the Maui Invitational on Monday night.

Kyle Dranginis missed an open 3-pointer that could have tied it for the Bulldogs in the final seconds. Gonzaga (4-1) led by as many as 16 in the first half.

Sibert had 16 points in the second half as the Flyers (5-0) came back to give the early-season tournament its first major upset.

Dayton took its first lead during a 7-0 run with less than 12 minutes to play after cutting into Gonzaga's lead as soon as the second half began.

Kevin Pangos led the Bulldogs with 27 points and nearly led a comeback to save his team from the loss. But he fouled out in the final minute and was unable to contribute to Gonzaga's last two possessions.
