DAYTON, Ohio (AP) -- Khalif Wyatt scored 20 points, including the game-winning 3-pointer with 7 seconds left, then Temple hung on in a frenzied final second to complete its come-from-behind 72-71 win over Dayton on Saturday.

The Owls (16-7, 5-4 Atlantic 10 Conference), who trailed 68-58 with 4:31 remaining, closed the game with a 14-3 spurt, with Scootie Randall scoring five in the spree. After Wyatt's 3-pointer, Will Cummings stole the ball from the Flyers' Kevin Dillard with 3 seconds showing.

In the last second, Dayton missed two free throws and Temple missed three, plus committed a turnover when Jake O'Brien fired his second free-throw attempt off the backboard. The Flyers (13-10, 3-6) inbounded the ball, but it was touched by the Owls, ending the game.

Anthony Lee added 13 points and Cummings and O'Brien had 11 apiece for Temple.

Dillard's 16 points led Dayton, which has lost three of its last four games.
