KENILWORTH, NJ - After a first round loss to Union Catholic in the first round of the Union County Tournament on Monday, the Dayton boys basketball team bounced back with authority on Tuesday.

Junior guard Antonio Salcfas scored a game-high 24 points and senior guard Nick Ulizio added 12 to power Dayton to a 60-28 victory over rival Brearley in Kenilworth.

Freshman DJ Alicea added seven points, senior Joe Kastner had six, and junior Anthony Nagy chipped in with five points for the Bulldogs, which led 17-8 after the first quarter en route to a 30-16 halftime lead.

Junior Anthony Rajoppi contributed four points and junior Ryan Lashuk had a bucket for Dayton (9-11), which has won two of its last three games, improved to 3-7 on the road, and swept the two-game series from the Bears, having won at home, 69-53, on Jan. 19.

“It was a nice win after a tough loss. We didn’t shoot the three well, but we made up for it with 44 points in the paint and our points per possession was 1.15. We attacked the basket and got some points off steals,” said Dayton head coach Bobby Martin. “We’ve got two tough opponents to get us ready for the state tournament. We’ll need to take care of the ball and play good defense to be successful. It’s not complicated. Our defense starts with our shot selection. Good shots on our part prevent fast break points for our opponents.”

Freshman Ibn McLean had 13 points for Brearley (1-16), which has lost 15 straight games.

The Bulldogs return to action for Senior Night versus Cedar Grove on Wednesday, Feb. 22 at 7 p.m.  They play the final regular season game Thursday February 23 when they travel up Route 22 to take on North Plainfield at 7 p.m.
