Aiken put the Hawks ahead for good, 68-66, with a layup off a lob pass from Halil Kanacevic at :25. Roberts blocked a shot on Temple's next possession and Kanacevic grabbed the rebound. The junior hit both ends of a one-and-one to give SJU a 70-66 lead with 16 seconds to go.

After Jones missed the front end of a one-and-one at :08, Wyatt drove the lane and the ball went out of bounds off the Hawks.

Temple, which held a 37-34 lead at halftime, was 11-for-31 from three-point range in the game.
