Alex Garcia-Mendoza matched his career high with 21 points for Arkansas-Little Rock (19-17). The Trojans played overtime without Solomon Bozeman, the Sun Belt’s player of the year who fouled out with 55 seconds to go in regulation. He finished with 18 points.Each year, the tournament turns into a big stage looking for a star. Matt Dickey became the first to take the spotlight.

“He made some big plays coming off ball screens,” Bozeman said. “We weren’t able to contain him.”

The shooting guard asserted himself with nine minutes left, leading the late surge that culminated in his 3-pointer from the left corner. Primm had missed a 3, but the Bulldogs got the rebound and passed it around to Dickey, who was open and didn’t hesitate.

UNC Asheville had to quickly leave Dayton and catch a charter flight to Washington D.C., where they’re set to matchup with one seeded Pitt on Thursday.

Unforatunately for the Trojans, they caught a flight back to Little Rock, becoming the first team eliminated from the NCAA tournament.
