Dayton wins NIT, Defeats North Carolina 79-68

Dayton players danced at midcourt and then lingered on ladders as they cut down the nets at Madison Square Garden.

Marcus Johnson scored 20 points and Dayton denied last year's national champs another title, topping the Tar Heels 79-68 Thursday night to win the NIT.

Forgive these Flyers for taking a little extra time to soak it all in. They're not as accustomed to trophy ceremonies as the North Carolina team they had just beaten.

"This game kind of is a capsule of our season," said by Coach Brian Gregory. "Started off great, had some tough times and then just kind of fight through, and ended up very successful at the end."
