    PHILADELPHIA -- Tori Jankoska scored 19 points and pulled down 11 rebounds as No. 21 Michigan State survived to beat Temple 74-70 on Tuesday night.

    Temple's Feyonda Fitzgerald scored 13 first-half points as the Owls (3-1) powered to a 32-28 lead at the break. The lead would get as high as seven before MSU (5-1) would reel them in.

    The teams traded buckets most of the second half, but MSU was able to take a three-point lead with 3:17 left. Temple's Tyonna Williams cut the lead to 67-66 after a pair of free throws. Jankoska answered with a jumper, pushing the lead back to three.

    Temple never got closer, and MSU closed out the game at the line.

    Annalise Pickrel added 18 points for MSU while Becca Mills scored 13 points to go with her nine rebounds. Kiana Johnson added six assists.

    Fitzgerald paced Temple with 24 points, and Williams added 14.
