PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Kevin Dillard and Josh Parker scored 16 points apiece to lead five Flyers in double figures as Dayton picked up an 87-77 win over Temple Saturday.

Dillard scored all his points in the second half and Parker got his off the bench for the Flyers (12-4, 2-0 Atlantic-10 Conference). Chris Johnson recorded his second consecutive double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds, Matt Kavanaugh added 14 points and Luke Fabrizius tallied 13.

Down 58-53 midway through the second half after a 31-all halftime tie, Dayton used a 16-4 run to take a lead it wouldn’t relinquish. The Flyers sealed it with a minute remaining after a Parker hit a 3-pointer as the shot clock expired.

Temple, who on Wednesday knocked off No. 5 Duke, saw its 25-game winning streak at the Liacouras Center snapped.

Khalif Wyatt scored a game-high 28 points to lead Temple (10-4, 0-1).
