PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Anthony Lee scored his only basket on a putback with 0.3 seconds remaining in overtime, lifting Temple to an 87-85 win over Buffalo on Wednesday night.

Lee, a redshirt freshman who finished with five points thanks to a 3-for-5 night at the foul line, got the game’s final points for Temple (8-3) by cleaning up Khalif Wyatt’s attempt at a game-winner.

The win extends the Owls’ school record home-court winning streak to 25 games.

Ramone Moore scored a team-high 24 points and matched his season high with eight rebounds. Juan Fernandez added 21 points and, for the second straight game, made five 3-pointers.

Wyatt added 17 points, including three 3-pointers, while Aaron Brown came off the bench with 12 points and five rebounds.

Javon McCrea scored a game-high 28 points to lead the Bulls (6-4).

The Owls scored 31 points off 21 Bulls turnovers.
