Brea replaces redshirt senior guard Rodney Chatman, who started all 31 games last season and the first six games this season. Dayton has not made an official announcement about Chatman’s injury, but he was watching the team warm up before the game with a brace or splint on his right hand.
Chatman played 34 minutes Wednesday in a 67-65 loss to La Salle. Brea made his Dayton debut in that same game, scoring three points on 1-of-2 shooting from 3-point range, in 14 minutes. Brea missed six weeks earlier in the season with an upper body injury.
