Brunson's 25 points lead No. 1 Villanova over Temple 83-67

Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Jalen Brunson scored a season-high 25 points against his dad's old team, leading No. 1 Villanova over Temple 83-67 Wednesday night.

Daniel Ochefu had 16 points and nine rebounds and Kris Jenkins added 15 points as the Wildcats (23-3) won their sixth in a row. Villanova took its 14th straight game in the Philadelphia Big 5 to claim its third consecutive city series title.

Brunson is the son of former Temple star Rick Brunson. The freshman guard drew jeers from the crowd after spurning his father's alma mater for Villanova.

The booing didn't affect his aim, though. He made 9 of 11 shots, including 4 of 5 on 3-pointers.

Trey Lowe scored a career-high 21 points for Temple (16-9).
