NORMAL, Ill. (AP) Daishon Knight had 20 points and six rebounds as Illinois State beat No. 25 Dayton 81-75 on Saturday night.
Bobby Hunter scored 16 points and Zach Lofton added 13 for the Redbirds (5-4).

Illinois State jumped to a 6-0 lead and held a 39-32 advantage at the half. The Redbirds led by as many as 10 points in the first half, thanks to a tough defense that kept Dayton from getting good looks at the basket.
Both teams shot about 50 percent from the field, with the Redbirds hitting on 26 of 52 shots and the Flyers going 28 of 57.
