NEW YORK, NY – Sheldon McClellan led the way with 16 points and 11 rebounds as Miami rallied from an early deficit to defeat Temple 60-57 in an NIT semifinal at Madison Square Garden.
The Owls led by as many as 11 in the first half, but the Hurricanes cut it to five by halftime.
Temple had a chance to tie the game late, but Quenton DeCosey’s three-pointer was off the mark as Miami held on for the victory. They’ll play the winner of Old Dominion and Stanford in Thursday’s championship game.
Dave Ryan and Kelly Tripucka called the action on Westwood One Sports.
