DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – After trailing at halftime, the University of Dayton men’s basketball team had it’s second-half comeback fall short in the final seconds resulting in a heartbreaking 74-69 loss to George Mason at UD Arena on Saturday night.
DaRon Holmes II posted a career-high 34 points, adding 6 rebounds and 2 assists. Toumani Camara and Koby Brea each had 9 points.
The defeat snaps a four-game winning streak for UD and marks just the second home loss of the season.
