Temple tops Rutgers 88-82 to snap skid
TEMPLE 88, RUTGERS 82

By DAVE ZEITLIN
Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Will Cummings had 21 points and a
career-high eight assists, Dalton Pepper scored 20 and Temple
snapped its longest losing streak in 38 years with an 88-82 win
over Rutgers on Wednesday.

The victory was the first in American Athletic Conference play
for the Owls, who had lost eight straight games to start the
calendar year, including its first seven league contests.

Kadeem Jack had 18 points and eight rebounds for the Scarlet
Knights, who have lost four straight and six of their last
seven.

Rutgers trailed by 20 early in the second half but stormed all
the way back, taking a 75-74 lead with 2:47 left on back-to-back
3-pointers from J.J. Moore.

Cummings responded with consecutive driving layups to put the
Owls back ahead 78-75 with 1:30 left.

After Junior Etou made one of two free throws for Rutgers,
Pepper scored with 57.2 seconds left, Temple forced a turnover
on the other end and Josh Brown buried two free throws with 41.6
seconds left to put the Owls ahead 82-76.

Myles Mack, Rutgers' leading scorer who didn't start because of
a minor team infraction, hit a 3-pointer with 38 seconds left to
give the Scarlet Knights life. But after Temple threw the ball
away, Rutgers gave it right back and Temple went 6 for 6 from
the free throw line in the final 30 seconds to snap the
program's longest streak since the 1975-76 season.

Anthony Lee and Quenton DeCosey added 15 points apiece for
Temple (6-13, 1-7 American).

Etou finished with 14 for Rutgers (8-13, 2-6) and Moore scored
13.

Leading by just three with just over three minutes remaining in
the first half, the Owls reeled off a 13-1 run, taking a
comfortable 50-37 advantage into the halftime break. Pepper
sparked the run with a pair of steals, a 3-pointer and a dunk.
Cummings added six points during the stretch.

Pepper and Cummings combined to score 25 first-half points for
the Owls, who shot a blistering 65.6 percent before the break
and went 5 for 10 from 3-point range. Temple scored 50 points in
two straight halves, following its 50-point second half vs.
Cincinnati on Sunday with a 50-point first half Wednesday.

Despite shooting 52 percent in the first half, Rutgers fell
behind by 20 after Temple scored the first seven points coming
out of halftime. But Jack scored eight points in a four-minute
stretch midway through the second half to help Rutgers get back
into the game against an undermanned Temple squad playing with
just eight healthy scholarship players.

Rutgers head coach Eddie Jordan is no stranger to basketball in
Philadelphia, having coached the 76ers from 2009 to 2010.

This is the only year in which Temple and Rutgers, which is
moving to the Big 10, are both members of the American Athletic
Conference but the two programs used to be Atlantic 10 rivals
from 1982 to 1995.
