    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Josh Parker scored 15 points and Kevin Dillard added 12, leading Dayton to the Old Spice Classic championship game with a 56-49 victory over Fairfield on Friday night.

    Dayton (4-1) will go against Minnesota, a 76-69 winner over Indiana State earlier Friday, in the title matchup.

    Parker went 0 for 5 from the floor and didn't score Thursday when Dayton beat Wake Forest 80-76.

    Rakim Sanders had 17 points for Fairfield (3-3). He had 21 points and seven rebounds in the Stags' 55-44 victory over Arizona State on Thursday.

    Dillard had a three-point play as Dayton went ahead 54-49 with 62 seconds to play. He added two late free throws after a techical was called on the Fairfield bench.

    After Matt Kavanaugh's basket with 3 1/2 minutes to play gave Dayton a 51-46 advantage, Desmond Wade hit a 3 to cut the Fairfield deficit to 51-49.
