Craft remained on his back in disappointment as the Flyers rushed to celebrate at their bench at the other end of the court.
"I just wanted to do everything I could to help our team win, and down the stretch I couldn't do that today," Craft said. "I can take the blame for that."
Dayton inbounded the ball and worked it to Sanford on the right wing. Driving the lane without hesitation, he got a step on Craft and laid in a shot from about 4 feet away.
