Dayton takes Syracuse's chances of advancing to the Sweet 16 by beating the Orange in a 55-53 win.
Syracuse had a chance to win but Tyler Ennis' short pull up jumper bounced off the rim as time expired and gave Dayton a trip to the Sweet 16. Ennis led all scores with 19 points, but it was not enough to help Syracuse pull out the win.
Dayton has not been to the Sweet 16 since 1984.
Now Dayton must get prepared to play either Kansas or Stanford when these two meet Sunday.
