Khalif Wyatt netted 25 points while double with 18 points and 12 rebounds as No. 22 79, to win its 11th consecutive game.

Earl Pettis and Sam Mills each missed potential game-winning three-pointers in the final five seconds of overtime for La Salle.

Ramone Moore scored 18 points to go with nine rebounds and five assists, but was just 5-of-16 from the floor for Temple (22-5, 11-2 A-10), which hasn't won 11 in a row since a 13-game run during the 1999-2000 campaign.

Pettis had a game-high 33 points for the Explorers (18-10, 7-6), who overcame a 10-point deficit in the final four minutes of regulation to force overtime. La Salle has lost four of its last five games.
