PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Khalif Wyatt scored 22 points and Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson had 17 to help Temple knock off No. 5 Duke 78-73 on Wednesday night. Using tough man-to-man defense that limited Duke's long-range shots, the Owls (10-3) grabbed the lead midway through the first half and never let it go. When the Blue Devils (12-2) crept within three points in the waning minutes, Wyatt hit consecutive 3-pointers for a 66-57 lead. The Owls had lost nine straight times to Duke, and hadn't beat the Blue Devils since Jan. 25, 1996. This decisive win in front of more than 20,000 fans gave the Owls wins over Top 10 teams for the fourth straight season, all in Philadelphia. Mason Plumlee had 16 points and 13 rebounds for the Blue Devils. Temple fans stormed the court in celebration and lingered long after the final buzzer.
