It's ugly offensively from both sides.
The only thing worse is these Dayton announcers.
Dayton leads 24-17 with just over three to play in the first half, having scored 8 in a row.
Neither team has shot the ball very well. The Mount made just one of their first 15. Then it got a little bit better.
Dayton has 11 offensive rebounds, consequently 10 more shots. The difference in the game right now - as both teams have shot poorly. 28-19 Dayton right now. And we'll goto halftime with that score.
Dayton has been too much on the boards for the Mount. 31-14 advantage is ridiculous. The Mount is without both Kristian Krajina and Pierre Brown so there is no height on the wing. Essentially they are playing with three guards and the Flyers are absolutely killing them.
That and the fact that the Mount has shot 22.2% from the field. After making just one of their first 15, it did get a bit better the rest of the half making 5-of-12, but there were some open shots that need to be knocked down.
The Mount only turned the ball over three times. That is a real positive. I was deathly afraid that turnovers could make things very ugly in this game. That hasn't been the cause. Lamar Trice had 5 assists - considering the Mount had six baskets - that is a pretty good number. He didn't shoot well and he made some questionable shooting decisions but a pretty good half nonetheless from him.
Shawn Atupem and Julian Norfleet lead the Mount with 6 points each.
The Mount led 17-16 before Dayton closed the half on a 13-2 run.
More of the same to start the second half. Although there was a nice little move from Shawn Atupem in there somewhere....and the Flyers are starting to get their offense rolling. It's 36-23 Under 15 to go with Castellanos headed to the foul line.
The Mount cut it to 9 twice in a row, first on a three-pointer from Norfleet and then on a nice backdoor cut and an easy bucket from Norfleet. He has 13 now to lead the Mount. But as soon as the Mount starts getting going offensively they seem to relax at the defensive end. Happened a bit in the first half as well. The lead is back to 44-30 with just over 12 to play.
