    SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I (AP) -- Dawan Robinson had 19 points and Will Daniels added 12 as Rhode Island broke a four-game losing streak with a 69-63 win over Temple on Wednesday night.

    Mardy Collins had 27 points for Temple (15-12, 8-7 Atlantic 10).

    Robinson and Jamaal Wise scored eight of the last 11 Rhode Island points as the Rams (13-13, 7-8) outscored Temple 11-5 in the final two minutes of play. Jimmy Baron's three-pointer with two minutes left broke a 58-58 tie and Rhode Island led the rest of the way. Baron finished with 11 points.

    Rhode Island built its first half lead to as much as 27-16 when Robinson made a 3-pointer with 8:44 left, one of eight 3-pointers for the Rams in the first half. Collins had 18 points in the first, including a late 3-pointer, to pull Temple within 37-32 going into the break.

    Antywane Robinson also scored 14 points for the Owls.

    Temple lost a chance to pull even with La Salle for the fourth spot, and a first-round bye, in the March 8 Atlantic 10 conference tournament. LaSalle lost to Fordham 83-74 Wednesday night.
