UNDATED (AP) — Dayton’s surprising run in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament will continue into the regional finals.

Jordan Sibert scored 18 points and Kendall Pollard added a season-high 12 to lead the 11th-seeded Flyers to an 82-72 win over No. 10 Stanford in the South Regional. Sibert finished 7 of 12 from the field, including 4 of 9 from 3-point range. He nailed a 3-pointer from the corner to give Dayton a 42-29 lead late in the first half.
