Williams leads Richmond past Temple, 76-65

AP Sports Writer

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Derrick Williams had 18 points and a
career-best 13 rebounds as Richmond dominated in the first half
and beat Temple 76-65 on Saturday night.

Darien Brothers scored 19 to lead the Spiders (11-7, 2-1
Atlantic 10 Conference), who beat the Owls for the third time in
a row in Richmond.

Khalif Wyatt had 22 points and Ramone Moore 17 for Temple (11-5,
1-2), which led only after scoring the game's first basket.

The Spiders, using a combination of dominance inside led by
Williams and Darrius Garrett, and the 3-point shooting of
Brothers and Kendall Anthony, used runs of 10-1 and 10-0 in the
first half to open their biggest lead - 44-25 - at halftime.

The Owls gradually played their way back into it after halftime.
A 6-0 run pulled them to 53-42 with 13 minutes to go, but
Williams scored in the lane for the Spiders and Cedric Lindsay
hit a free throw to rebuild the lead to 56-42, and the Owls
never made it interesting again.

Anthony added 15 points and Lindsay 11 for Richmond. Garrett had
10 rebounds and five blocked shots.

The Spiders' lead was back up to 63-49 when Temple had its night
in a nutshell.

Aaron Brown stole the ball near midcourt for the Owls and headed
in for a dunk. But Richmond's Greg Robbins was right with him,
and when Brown went up to dunk, he banged the ball off the back
off the rim. Moments later, Brothers' fourth 3-pointer made it

Juan Fernandez, the Owls third-leading scorer with a 12-point
average, missed his first nine shots before connecting with
10:54 to play. It was his only field goal of the game in 11
attempts, and helped greatly as the Owls shot just 36.7 percent

The Spiders led throughout the first half and began to separate
themselves with a 10-1 run that gave them a 25-14 lead. Brothers
and Anthony hit back-to-back 3s in the burst, and the 5-foot-8
Anthony finished with a basket in the lane.

Temple used a 6-2 run to get within seven, but two free throws
by Brothers started a 10-0 run for the Spiders. Anthony hit
consecutive 3-pointers - from the left wing and the right corner
- and Lindsay followed with a steal and fed Garrett for a huge
dunk on a breakaway.
