PHILADELPHIA (AP) Josh Brown made five free throws down the stretch as Temple weathered a late rally to beat Saint Joseph's 81-78 on Saturday afternoon.

Temple (6-2) sprinted to a 40-29 halftime advantage and led 63-51 midway of the second period and still had a comfortable 74-58 lead with 5:01 remaining. Shavar Newkirk and Taylor Funk drilled back to back 3-pointers to start 14-2 run as the Hawks pulled to 76-72 with 1:32 remaining. Brown then sealed the win with five free throws.

Alston, who had set the school record with 52 free throws in a row over two seasons, was 1 of 2 against St. Joseph's to end his streak.
