Sat. Final: Dayton 89, No. 15 Marquette 75
HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. (AP) -- Rob Lowery scored a career-high 21 points Saturday night and Dayton used its depth and quickness to beat No. 15 Marquette 89-75 in the final of the Chicago Invitational Challenge.
The Flyers' 6-0 start is their best since winning the first nine games in 2003-04.
Marquette (5-1) was beaten at its own fast-paced game. The Golden Eagles got a career-high 28 points from Wesley Matthews and 19 points from Dominic James.
The Flyers matched Marquette's quickness on the perimeter by alternating guards and also got a strong performance on the inside from Chris Wright, who finished with 13 points and 13 rebounds, and from freshman Chris Johnson, who had 12 points and 11 boards.
