    Dupree's 3-point play lifts Temple past La Salle in OT

    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Candice Dupree scored 29 points, including the game-winning three-point play with 2.8 seconds remaining in overtime, to lead Temple (No. 23 ESPN/USA Today; No. 24 AP) to a 66-64 victory over La Salle on Sunday.

    It was Temple's 24th consecutive Atlantic 10 Conference victory.

    After a three-point play by Crista Ricketts gave the Explorers a 64-63 lead with 4.2 seconds remaining in the extra session, the Owls (10-3, 2-0) had to go the length of the court.

    Lady Comfort passed to Dupree at the opposite foul line, and Dupree drove to the basket and was fouled by Ricketts for the decisive basket.

    Kamesha Hairston added 13 points and Khadija Bowens had 10 for Temple.

    Davineia Payne led the Explorers (5-8, 2-1) with 21 points, while Carlene Hightower had 16 and Ricketts added 11.

    La Salle nearly won the game in regulation after Ricketts was fouled by Jennifer Owens with 5.4 seconds left. Ricketts made the first free throw, but missed the second and the game went into overtime tied at 55.
