PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Dalton Pepper scored 26 points and Will Cummings had 23 to lead Temple to an 86-78 overtime victory over Central Florida on Tuesday night.

Anthony Lee scored 20 points for the Owls (8-21, 3-14 American Athletic Conference). Lee converted a three-point play with 1:07 left in OT to stretch the lead to 78-74 and help the Owls snap a three-game losing streak.

Calvin Newell led the Knights (11-17, 3-14) with 23 points and Kasey Wilson had 14.

The Owls are already guaranteed their worst season in 117 years of the program's history. They lost 20 games for the first time, ending a run of six straight 20-win seasons. The Owls were one of only eight schools to make the NCAA tournament each of the last six years.

Barring a stunning run through the AAC tournament, the streak is over.
