WATCH: Temple upsets No. 23 UConn on the road in closing seconds

No. 23 UConn was riding its longest win streak since it won the 2014 NCAA Tournament (five games) … and then unranked, 6-6 Temple came to Hartford, Connecticut and brought the whole thing to an end in a 55-53 victory vs. the Huskies.

This after Temple lost by 27 to Houston just a few days ago.

Things are getting weird in the American Athletic Conference.

Temple’s Josh Brown sank a running jumper with 2.5 seconds remaining to break a 53-all tie and lift Fran Dunphy to the 200th win of the coach’s career at Temple.

Sterling Gibbs missed the game’s final shot. Quenton DeCosey led the Owls with 15 points. Shonn Miller’s 18 points were a high for UConn.

The Huskies (10-4, 1-1) dropped a game approximately 30 hours after re-entering the polls following a three-week absence. Kevin Ollie’s crew will try to get right at home against Memphis on Saturday. Temple (7-6, 2-1) next goes up against East Carolina.

The Owls went into Hartford and got a tough-it-out victory. (USATSI)
