picked up just 17 points from its other four starters.

Still, the Flyers never trailed. Hawkins, who hit 5 of 11
3-pointers, made his final basket behind the arc with 2:32 left to
draw the Owls to 57-56.

After Waleskowski hit the first of two free throws a minute
later, Mardy Collins and Hawkins missed jumpers on Temple's next
two possessions.
