Final Score: Temple 65, Penn State 59

State College, PA (Sports Network) - Semaj Inge turned in 19 points, six assists and five rebounds to pace the Temple Owls in a 65-59 victory over the Penn State Nittany Lions in a non-conference showdown at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Ryan Brooks added 15 points in the win for Temple (4-3), while Lavoy Allen chipped in 11 points and hauled in 10 rebounds. Dionte Christmas, though, was held to just two points and that was surprising considering he was averaging a healthy 21.8 ppg coming into the contest.
