    Dupree drops 24 as No. 22 Owls soar over Flyers

    DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Candice Dupree had 24 points and eight rebounds in 28 minutes of Temple's 70-36 win Sunday over Dayton.

    The Owls (No. 22 ESPN/USA Today; No. 23 AP) pulled away with a 20-4 run midway through the first half, building a 43-25 halftime lead that would have held up even if they hadn't scored in the second half.

    The lead changed eight times early on as Dayton sank six of its first eight 3-pointers.

    But Temple (20-6, 11-3 Atlantic 10) dominated the Flyers down low, outrebounding them 53-26 and outscoring them 34-10 in the paint.

    Kamesha Hairston added 10 points for the Owls, and Lady Comfort grabbed 11 rebounds. Comfort also shut down Dayton forward Cara Wright, who has a conference-leading 13 double doubles but went scoreless on seven shots and had only two rebounds.

    Dayton (16-9, 8-6) shot 27 percent and went to the foul line just three times. Nikki Oakland scored 11 points on 5-of-8 shooting off the bench to lead the Flyers, who also got 10 points from Jennifer Strong.
