Dayton, OH (Sports Network) - Roosevelt Jones tallied 16 points and seven rebounds to help the No. 14 Butler Bulldogs hold off Dayton, 79-73, on Saturday.

In claiming its second straight road conference victory, Butler (14-2, 2-0 A-10) extended its winning streak to 11 straight games, however lost season- leading scorer Rotnei Clarke early in the contest on a scary play.

Clarke had to be taken away on a stretcher after taking a hard foul and colliding head first with the padded area of the backboard stand. He was taken to a hospital for X-rays to determine the extent of the injury and his status is still not known.

To help supplement the loss of Clarke, Andrew Smith and Khyle Marshall scored 13 and 12 points, respectively, for the Bulldogs, who also received a combined 27 points from their bench.

Vee Sanford and Dyshawn Pierre each tallied 14 points, while Pierre also grabbed nine boards for the Flyers (10-6, 0-2), who have lost four of their past six games.

Kevin Dillard added 13 points and Khari Price scored 10 off the bench in defeat.
