    PHILADELPHIA -- Ramon Moore scored 25 points and Khalif Wyatt added 22 as Temple rallied in the final minutes to overtake George Washington 79-72 on Wednesday night.

    The Owls (17-5, 7-2 Atlantic 10 Conference), trailing 67-57 with 5:09 remaining, went on an 18-2 run to lead 75-69 with 22 seconds to go. George Washington went the entire stretch without a field goal.
