PHILADELPHIA (Ticker) -- Alex Wesby made sure John Chaney's return would be joyous. Mike Davis may have wished that he was not present.
Wesby scored 26 points, including the clinching free throws with 3.1 seconds left, as Temple upset No. 11 Indiana, 71-64.
Chaney had missed the Owls' last two contests after being hospitalized with pneumonia on December 8. Davis was ejected from last Saturday's loss to Kentucky for running onto the court and the Big Ten is suggesting a six-game ban.
"I understand what I did was wrong," Davis said. "But am I the first person to do that?"
Temple (2-6) played inspired basketball in Chaney's return, rallying from an early five-point deficit in the second half to take a 52-44 edge on a hook shot by freshman Keith Butler with 14:12 to play.
Indiana (8-2) stormed back, taking a 59-58 edge on a 3-pointer by freshman Bracey Wright with 6:15 to go. But Temple freshman Maurice Collins countered with a bank shot with 54 seconds later to put the Owls ahead for good.
The Hoosiers trailed by six points with 2 1/2 minutes remaining but got within 65-63 on a pair of free throws by Jeff Newton with 1:14 left. The Owls led, 67-64, before Brian Polk missed a pair from the line with 14.7 seconds to play, but Wright missed a potential game-tying 3-pointer and Wesby put the game out of reach with two free throws.
Polk capped the scoring with a steal and dunk with one second left.
"We had a lot of time to prepare for a good team," said Chaney, whose team had a two-week break since losing at Illinois. "Mike has done a very great job. They attacked our defense very well."
"I knew we were in big trouble because they had two weeks to prepare for us," Davis said. "(But) they were better than us today - way better."
Collins scored 16 points for Temple, which was playing its first home contest since losing to Rutgers in the season opener on November 24.
"The freshman kids we're counting on gave us a big effort, a big lift," Chaney said. "Maurice Collins carried us. He did a great job."
Wright contributed 17 points and 10 rebounds and Kyle Hornsby 12 points for Indiana, which scored only seven baskets inside the arc. The Hoosiers shot 13-of-29 from 3-point range but just 7-of-21 on 2-point attempts.
The Hoosiers have lost two in a row since beginning the season with eight straight wins.
"We give up an average of 15 offensive rebounds a game, about 14 more shots," Davis said. "It's about effort. We had bad practices before Kentucky, bad practices before we came in here. ... I took a pretty good basketball team and screwed them up over the past couple weeks."
Indiana committed 15 turnovers - eight more than Temple. The Owls also recorded 13 steals, while the Hoosiers managed just two.
The Hoosiers fell to 6-2 all time in Philadelphia. They had not been here since winning two games in the Final Four of the 1981 NCAA Tournament.
