DAYTON - Nate Green scored 15 points, including the go-ahead free throws with 42 seconds left, and Brooks Hall made two final-minute defensive stops as Dayton held off Duquesne 77-72 Saturday.

Mark Jones scored 19 points, and Keith Waleskowski had 12 points and 12 rebounds for the Flyers, who saw their 15-point halftime lead turn into a 71-70 deficit with 1:01 remaining before recovering.

Kevin Forney led the Dukes with 22 points off the bench, and Jimmy Tricco hit six of eight 3-pointers and scored 20 but was stopped twice by Hall in the final minute.

After Green's two free throws put Dayton ahead 73-72, Hall blocked Tricco's jumper from the foul line.

Ramod Marshall hit two free throws to make it 75-72, then stole the ball from Tricco, who was pressured by Hall.
