Recap: Temple vs. Rhode Island

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Khalif Wyatt paced four teammates in double figures with 24 points as the Temple Owls held off the Rhode Island Rams, 76-70, in an Atlantic 10 Conference tilt at the Liacouras Center.

Wyatt made his presence felt at the foul line with a 9-of-11 showing for Temple (21-8, 9-5 A-10), which has reeled off five straight victories. Jake O'Brien tallied 16 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks, Scootie Randall logged 15 points and eight boards, Will Cummings also netted 15 points, and Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson collected 13 rebounds for the hosts.

Xavier Munford was outstanding with 30 points for URI (8-19, 3-11), shooting 5-of-8 from 3-point range in the process. Andre Malone was also stellar from beyond the arc (4-of-5) en route to 18 points for the Rams, who have lost three in a row.

URI led for most of the first half, including by eight with just over five minutes left in the stanza, but Temple ripped off an 8-1 run to go into intermission down just one, 37-36.

The Rams continued to play the frontrunner until Wyatt converted a traditional three-point play with 14:47 remaining to give the Owls a 50-49 advantage. Temple extended its lead to as many as 11 before URI climbed back to tie the game, 64-64, with 6:10 left, but a pair of Wyatt free throws less than a minute later gave the Owls the lead for good.

Temple outrebounded URI, 41-33.
