Temple vs Massachusetts

Temple 83, UMass 82

  •  

AMHERST, Mass. (AP) - Khalif Wyatt scored 24 points, 17 in the second half, as Temple defeated Massachusetts 83-82 Saturday night in the Owls' fifth consecutive one-point game.

Wyatt's 3-pointer with 9:05 remaining gave Temple (17-8, 6-5 Atlantic 10 Conference) a lead it never relinquished in a game with 16 lead changes and 10 ties.

The Minutemen (16-8, 6-5) got within 83-82 with 1:08 remaining on Freddie Riley's 3-pointer but couldn't get a shot off on their final possession.

Temple has played nothing but one-point games in the month of February, winning previously over Charlotte and Dayton and losing to Saint Joseph's and Duquesne. It's the longest such streak by any team since at least the start of the 1996-97 season, according to STATS LLC.

Anthony Lee had 14 points and Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson 10 points and 11 rebounds for Temple. Hollis-Jefferson also had eight assists, nearly recording the Owls' first triple-double since Pepe Sanchez in 1998.

Wyatt, who has averaged 25.2 points over the Owls' last 11 games, made 6 of 11 shots from 3-point range, including five in the second half.

Riley scored 17 points and Chaz Williams had 16 points and 13 assists for Massachusetts. Cady Lalanne came off the bench to get 14 points, 12 rebounds and four blocks for the Minutemen.

Considering the Owls' string of cliffhangers, the way this one ended was perhaps fitting. After a missed layup by Hollis-Jefferson, Massachusetts called time out with 17 seconds remaining, trailing by one.

When play resumed, Temple did not allow the Minutemen to get off a shot. Hollis-Jefferson appeared to strip the ball away from Williams at the top of the key and a scramble ensued.

A jump ball was called with no time showing on the clock. Officials looked at the replay and determined the game had ended.
