PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Matthew Wright led five players in double figures with 22 points to help St. Bonaventure beat Temple 81-78 Saturday and get its first road win over the Owls in 31 tries.

Eric Mosley and Demitrius Conger added 15 points, Youssou Ndoye 12 and Chris Johnson 10 for St. Bonaventure, which snapped a six-game losing streak.

St. Bonaventure (8-9, 1-3 Atlantic 10 Conference) led 69-63 with 3:49 left to play following back-to-back layups from Conger and Wright before Temple's Khalif Wyatt hit a 3-pointer, then two free throws, to make it 69-68 at the 2:56 mark.

However, Conger and Johnson answered with consecutive 3-pointers and Ndoye converted two free throws to put the Bonnies up for good, 77-68.

St. Bonaventure made 11 of 18 3-pointers, compared to 12 of 34 for Temple (12-5, 2-2), and dished out 21 assists.

Wyatt led Temple with 31 points but fouled out with 2:28 remaining.
