One of Temple basketball's rising stars has gotten himself into a fair bit of trouble. My Fox 29 in Philadelphia reports that Khalif Wyatt, a rising senior, was among 28 people arrested in a two-day prostitution sting in Atlantic City, New Jersey yesterday.

CSN Philadelphia reports that Wyatt solicited an undercover officer posing as a prostitute, then attempted to flee before being apprehended.

According to the list of those arrested (attached with the My Fox 29 article), Wyatt, 21, will be charged both with engaging in prostitution and resisting arrest. If an array of tweets from Wyatt's Twitter account are to be believed, he was celebrating his 21st birthday in Atlantic City at the time of the arrest.

A 6-4 shooting guard originally form Norristown, Pa., Wyatt was a second team all-Atlantic 10 selection last season as a member of the Owls. His average of 17.1 points per game was fourth best in the conference. His most memorable moment last season came in Temple's upset win over Duke, in which Wyatt scored a game-high 22 points with five steals.
