OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Jarvis Summers scored a career-high 29 points, but Dayton banked in a 3-pointer at the buzzer to knock off Ole Miss 83-80 in overtime Saturday.

Devin Oliver, 11 of 14 from the field, including 3 of 4 from three-point range, took the decisive shot at the top of the key, far behind the 3-point line. Oliver, who added seven rebounds and five assists, scored the final seven points of regulation play for the Flyers to force overtime at 73-73.

Dayton (12-3) rallied from an 80-76 overtime deficit in the final minute of overtime to tie it at 80 on a jumper and layup from Dyshawn Pierre and Kyle Davis, respectively. Ole Miss (9-4) turned it over with five seconds remaining on an illegal screen from Sebastian Saiz.

The Flyers turned to Oliver, who had misfired on a pair of early-season opportunities. Oliver managed to shake free for the straight-away shot that banked through cleanly. Ole Miss had an unsuccessful desperation heave at the buzzer.

It was the second consecutive home defeat for the Rebels (9-4) in the final second within a week. Mercer's Langston Hall hit a 3-point shot with 0.6 remaining to give the Bears a 79-76 win over Ole Miss on Sunday.

Oliver's decisive shot came from the same spot on the court.

Soochie Smith and Pierre had 11 points each while Matt Kavanaugh and Vee Sanford added 10 points apiece for the Flyers. Dayton shot 31 of 65 (47.7 percent) from the field, including 11 of 28 (39.3 percent) from 3-point range.

Ole Miss was led by Summers with 29 points, hitting 9 of 15 from the field and 10 of 12 from the free throw line. Marshall Henderson had 15 points, all in the second half while Aaron Jones added 10 points.

The Rebels led 31-28 at halftime and finished 24 of 54 from the field and 28 of 36 (78 percent) from the free throw line.
