NEWARK , Del. -- Khalif Walker hit a late go-ahead 3-pointer and then two free throws in the waning seconds to give Temple a 66-63 victory over Delaware Friday night.

Saddler scored a game-high 18 points and had five rebounds, but only one other Blue Hen was in double figures. Kelvin McNeil came off the bench to score 13 points. But Kyle Anderson's 3-ball gave Delaware a 63-61 lead with 2:01 to play. The Blue Hens didn't score again.
