Chris Wright had 17 points and 10 rebounds to lead Dayton to a 69-63 win over Richmond on Saturday night, with the Flyers setting an arena record with their 17th consecutive home victory. London Warren added 10 points and six assists for the Flyers (23-3, 9-2), who remained tied with Xavier for first place in the Atlantic 10. Kevin Anderson scored 24 points and David Gonzalvez had 16 for Richmond (12-13, 4-6). Dayton never trailed after the opening 2 minutes of the game, but the Spiders were behind just 57-53 with 5:45 left in the game after a three-point play by Gonzalvez. Charles Little followed with a three-point play of his own and the Spiders never got closer than five points again. The Flyers have won more than 17 home games in a row, but not since moving into the University of Dayton Arena in 1969.
