University of Dayton forward Josh Benson will miss the rest of the season after injuring his left knee Friday night during the Flyers' 62-50 victory over Mississippi. An MRI examination revealed a torn ACL, and Benson will undergo surgery. The 6-foot-9 junior had started every game this season for Dayton (10-4), which will host Saint Louis on Wednesday in its Atlantic 10 Conference opener. Benson is the Flyers' second-leading scorer, averaging 10.9 points per game, and second-leading rebounder (5.2). He had scored in double figures in five of his last six games before Friday and had seven points and four rebounds in 11 minutes against Ole Miss before the injury.
