PHILADELPHIA -- Khalif Wyatt netted a game-high 26 points as Temple beat Wagner 70-62 Saturday in a nonconference game.
The win puts Temple at 5-0 for the first time since 1987-88, when the team started 14-0, finished 32-2 and advanced to the Elite Eight as a No. 1 seed.
Wyatt was 9-of-16 shooting from the field and 3 of 5 on 3-pointers. Scottie Randall had 10 points, nine rebounds and four assists.
Temple fell in a 10-2 hole early but rebounded with a 17-5 run, and Wyatt's 3-pointer at the buzzer put the Owls up 34-28 at halftime.
The Seahawks were as close as 60-55 with 1:57 left, but Wyatt's 3-pointer and free-throw make put Temple up nine with 39 seconds left.
There's nothing to suggest the Jayhawks won't end up atop the Big 12 for a 13th season in a row. But what about a return to the Final Four?
Colorado State graduate transfer John Gillon has chosen Syracuse, giving the Orange a potential starter at point guard entering the 2016-17 season.
DeSean Murray, who averaged 20.2 points as a sophomore at Presbyterian, will transfer to Auburn to play for coach Bruce Pearl.
