Temple holds off Towson in second half for 76-64 win
Jaylen Bond put Temple (6-3) ahead for good late in the first half with back-to-back buckets during an 11-4 run capped by 3-pointers from Cummings and Quenton DeCosey to make it 25-17 just before the break. The Owls protected the lead the rest of the game.
DeCosey finished with 16 points, Daniel Dingle added 11 and Bond had 10 plus nine rebounds for Temple, which has won five straight on its home court.
Towson (7-3) closed to within two on a Byron Hawkins 3-pointer to open the second half but Temple responded with an 8-1 run and held off the Tigers down the stretch.
