PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Khalif Wyatt posted 26 points, six rebounds, five assists and hit four 3-pointers to help Temple pull away and beat instate-rival Pennsylvania 76-69 Wednesday in a nonconference matchup.

Anthony Lee added 16 points and Jake O’Brien 14 for Temple, which has won six straight against Penn under coach Fran Dunphy, who coached the Quakers from 1989-2006.

The Quakers (3-15) never got any closer than five the rest of the way.
