Kent, OH (Sports Network) - Scootie Randall scored a career-high 31 points to help the Temple Owls open the season with an 80-66 win over the Kent State Golden Flashes.

Khalif Wyatt and T.J. DiLeo had nine points apiece for Temple (1-0), which shot 52.9 percent from the floor.

Kris Brewer had 19 points to pace the Golden Flashes (1-1), who started their campaign by edging Drexel in overtime on Friday. Chris Evans scored 17 points, but committed eight turnovers.

Temple raced out to a 12-4 lead and DiLeo hit a 3-pointer to make it 30-15 with 7:36 remaining in the first half.

Kent State trimmed seven points off its deficit by halftime and continued to chip away following the break. The Golden Flashes drew even at 46-46 on a Brewer dunk just past the four-minute mark, but the Owls began to pull away again, beginning with consecutive threes by Randall.
