PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP)— Quincy Douby scored 13 of his 27 points in the final 1:56 to lead Rutgers to a 67-53 victory over Temple Wednesday night.
Freshman Anthony Farmer added a season-high 13 for Rutgers (4-1), which defeated Temple (2-2) for the fourth straight time.
The Owls, who shot just 28 percent, got a career-high 24 from Antywane Robinson and 14 from Mark Tyndale. Mardy Collins, Temple’s leading scorer, was held to 11 points on 1-of-9 shooting.
Rutgers did not take its first lead until Farmer’s 3-pointer made it 26-24 with 18:24 remaining, but the Scarlet Knights led for the remainder of the game.
Trailing 23-20 at halftime, Rutgers used a 19-8 run to open a 39-31 lead. The Owls cut it to 39-38 before Farmer hit a 3-pointer to start another 19-8 run that provided a 58-46 lead.
Temple never got closer than eight after that, as Douby scored 13 of Rutgers’ final 14 points. The junior guard was 8-for-8 from the line during that stretch. Douby added four assists, three blocked shots and a steal.
The Scarlet Knights shot 41.2 percent after a woeful shooting first half, and forced Temple into 12 turnovers. The Owls had just 13 turnovers in their first three games.
