Freshman guard Will Cummings started in place of Khalif Wyatt. The junior guard was benched for the first 9:13 of the game for showing up late for a film study.

Rian Pearson led Toledo (6-2) with 16 points. The Rockets had their six-game winning streak snapped. They also dropped to 0-4 all-time against the Owls.

Temple  travels home to face Villanova in Saturday’s much-anticipated Big Five matchup at the Liacouras Center.
