PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Will Cummings scored 19 points, Quenton DeCosey had 18 and Temple stunned No. 10 Kansas with a 77-52 rout Monday night that snapped the Jayhawks’ eight-game winning streak.
Jesse Morgan added 17 points and keyed a dominant second-half performance from the Owls, who were swallowed up after the game by a sea of Temple fans rushing the court at the Wells Fargo Center, home of the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers.
Frank Mason III scored 20 points for Kansas (9-2), which shot 32.7 percent from the field and committed 17 turnovers.
No one else on the Jayhawks hit double figures, and leading scorer Perry Ellis was held to five points on 1-for-10 shooting.
The Owls (8-4), who have won four of their last five, shot a blistering 58.3 percent from the field to beat a ranked opponent for the first time this season.
