Box score: Here.

Inside the Scoring:
  • Johnny Williams was clutch; just when it mattered most, he hit the go-ahead basket. On 5-of-6 shooting from the field Williams scored 14 points, two of which came on a falling down, left-handed scooping-type shot in front of the basket ... with 58 seconds left in the game. 
  • Four other Rams scored in double figures led by Justin Tillman's team-high 15 points and 10 rebounds. De'Riante Jenkins and Sean Mobley racked up 11 points, each. 
  • VCU's bench outscored Dayton's bench, 16-7. 
  • The Rams had a 12-8 advantage in points off of turnovers.
For the record:
  • VCU committed a season-low seven turnovers in the win.
  • After a slow start Tillman went on to get his 17th double-double of the season. 
  • VCU's all-time record in A-10 tournament action is now 13-4.
