What a game! San Diego State looked to have the game in hand with a 10-point first half lead, but Temple kept chipping into the lead to force a back-and-forth game for most of the second half and into overtime.
The game was tense late in the second half and through all of regulation. The Aztecs had chances to win in regulation and the first overtime but they did not pull away until the second overtime where Malcolm Thomas was a stud who had two key blocks in the extra frames and the defense overall stepped up. He also had 13 points and nine rebounds.
The offensive player of the game for San Diego State was Billy White who had 19 points and 13 rebounds, and overall the Aztecs had four players in double-figures.
