Ramone Moore scored five of his 18 points in overtime to help No. 22 Temple beat La Salle 80-79 on Wednesday night, the Owls' 11th straight win.
Khalif Wyatt scored 25 points and Michael Eric had 18 points and 12 rebounds for Temple (22-5, 11-2 Atlantic 10), which moved into the Top 25 this week for the first time this season.
Earl Pettis had a career-high 33 points, including the last seven in regulation, for La Salle (18-10, 7-6).
Pettis hit a 3-pointer to open the scoring in overtime before Temple scored the next nine points. Moore hit a 3-pointer and then his jumper gave the Owls a 76-74 lead they didn't relinquish.
After four free throws by Temple, Tyreek Duren's 3-pointer got La Salle within 80-77. Pettis hit a bank shot to cut it to 80-79. After Juan Fernandez missed a layup, the Explorers set up the last shot, but Pettis and Sam Mills missed 3-point attempts before the buzzer sounded.
The Explorers lost for the second time in 14 home games this season.
A raucous sellou...
