Iowa upsets No. 14 Dayton in overtime

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Bethany Doolittle shot 10 of 13 from the field and scored 22 points as Iowa upset No. 14 Dayton 97-93 in overtime on Sunday in the Hawkeye Challenge.

Samantha Logic hit a 3-pointer for Iowa with nine seconds left in regulation to tie the game at 90 and force overtime.

Iowa (2-0) held a 77-63 lead with under 10 minutes remaining in the second half and was up 85-79 with three minutes to play. But Dayton (1-1) then scored 11 straight points to take a 90-85 lead with 32 seconds left.

Iowa held the Flyers to just 3 points in overtime and scored 5 of its 7 points in the extra frame on free throws.

Ally Disterhoft scored 19 points for the Hawkeyes and Logic added 16. Andrea Hoover led Dayton with 23.

Dayton is coming off a 28-3 season. Both teams lost in the second round of last season’s NCAA Tournament.
