BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) — A’uston Calhoun scored 16 points, including slamming home a dunk with 13 seconds left for the game’s final margin, to lead Bowling Green over Temple 67-64 on Sunday.

Trailing 63-60 with 2:50 left to play, the Falcons (4-2) went on a 7-1 run the rest of the way and used some timely defense to seal the comeback win. They held the Owls without a field goal for a span of 2:28, as Temple’s Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson missed a shot and had one blocked by Scott Thomas.

Thomas sank a pair of foul shots to pull Bowling Green within one point with 1:30 left and Jordon Crawford, who also had a block with 4 seconds left to help thwart Temple, knocked down a 3 one minute later to put the Falcons up for good.

Thomas and Dee Brown scored 11 points each for Bowling Green.

Khalif Wyatt led Temple (3-2) with 19 points.
