  • Text size: + -

PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Javan Felix hit a three-pointer with nine seconds to play in overtime and Texas topped Temple 81-80 on Saturday at Wells Fargo Center.

The Longhorns (8-1) blew a 16-point lead to find themselves trailing with less than three minutes to play. Felix's game-winner was his second attempt, as his runner at the buzzer in regulation clanged off the rim.

Temple, down 48-37 at the half, out-scored Texas 21-10 over the 12 minutes of regulation to force overtime. The Owls tied the game in regulation at 68 and 70 before finally taking their first lead of the game, 71-70, on an Anthony Lee free throw with 3:01 to play. Lee led all scorers and rebounders with 23 points and 14 rebounds.

Sophomore forward Dan Dingle once again put Temple (4-4) ahead with 44 seconds to play in overtime on a pair of free throws, but the Owls couldn't hang on. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
