Temple Storms Back To Beat George Washington

Phew.

Score: Temple 55, George Washington 53

Star(s): Temple: Khalif Wyatt 18 Pts, 4 Ast, 3 Reb, 3 Stl. George Washington: Isiah Armwood 13 Pts, 9 Reb.

Story: Believe it or not, George Washington did not score a point in the last seven minutes of play in this one. In a defensive battle, it looked as if GW was going to pull the upset with a 53-45 lead and Temple's star Khalif Wyatt shooting just 30% from the field. However, the Colonials' offense went to sleep in the late stages of the game.

Temple's key to victory was its rebounding and shot blocking. The Owls improve to 12-4 overall and 2-1 in the A-10, while the Colonials fall to 7-9 and 1-2 in conference play.
