Saint Joseph's edges Temple 70-69 with late rally

AP - Sports

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Ronald Roberts scored 18 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and blocked three shots as Saint Joseph's rallied from a nine-point deficit to edge Temple 70-69 Saturday night.

Two 3-pointers by Carl Jones started an 18-5 run for the Hawks (13-7, 4-3 Atlantic 10 Conference), who trailed their local rival 61-52 with 5:39 left.

C.J. Aiken put Saint Joseph's ahead 68-66 with a layup off a lob from Halil Kanacevic at the 25-second mark.

After two free throws by Kanacevic, Khalif Wyatt's 3-pointer for the Owls (14-7, 3-4) made it a one-point game. Wyatt finished with a career-best 34 points and made 7 of 14 3-pointers.

Jones missed a free throw, but Wyatt had the ball go off Saint Joseph's on a drive, then couldn't hit a final shot with time running out.

Jones and Aiken scored 16 points each for Saint Joseph's. Kanacevic had 12 points, nine rebounds and eight assists.
