It was a strong bounceback performance for Kevin Keatts' Wolfpack, which gave No. 3 Kansas fits for much of Wednesday's first-round loss. But Keatts said afterward he liked how his team handled the short turnaround with no letdown, which included scoring 22 points off 18 turnovers.
Toumani Camara scored 19 points for the Flyers, who were the preseason Atlantic 10 favorite and ranked No. 21 in the AP Top 25 before falling out this week. Dayton lost 43-42 to Wisconsin on Wednesday.
The Wolfpack advanced to Friday's fifth-place game, where N.C. State will face Butler. The Flyers will play BYU in the seventh-place game.
