Temple edges Memphis 80-75 to advance to AAC semifinals

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Will Cummings and Obi Enechionyia combined for Temple's nine points in the final minute and the fourth-seeded Owls edged No. 5 seed Memphis 80-75 on Friday in the American Athletic Conference tournament quarterfinals, giving Owls coach Fran Dunphy his 500th career victory.

After a scramble for the ball under the Temple basket, Cummings, on the floor, got the ball to Enechionyia who scored, was fouled, and hit the free throw for a 74-71 lead with 39 seconds remaining. Memphis' Trahson Burrell made a free throw and missed a second but Calvin Godfrey missed the putback. Cummings and Enechionyia each added a pair of free throws before Kedren Johnson hit a 3-pointer to get Memphis within 78-75 with seven seconds remaining. Cummings added two more free throws to secure the win.

Cummings, who made 10 of 11 free throws, finished with 21 points. Quenton DeCosey added 14 points and Jesse Morgan 13 for the Owls (23-9), who will face No. 1 seed SMU on Saturday.
