Temple Stuns Duke 78-73
The Duke Blue Devils rose to #3 in latest college basketball poll.
They won’t be there next week.
Khalif Wyatt scored 22 points as the Owls shocked the Blue Devils 78-73
Wednesday night in Philadelphia.
The Owls grabbed the lead midway through the first half and never let go. They used a stifling man-to-man defense that took away Duke’s three point shooting and, despite a comeback down the stretch by the Blue Devils (12-2), held on for the win.
Duke had gotten within three points at 60-57, but Wyatt hit consecutive three pointers to get the lead back to nine points and the Owls (10-2) were never headed again.
Mason Plumlee led Duke with 16 points and 13 rebounds.
