TEMPE Zack Sellers grabbed an airball by teammate Kenya Wilkins and put it back for the winning basket as Oregon ended a six-game losing streak at Arizona State by beating the No. 15 Sun Devils 73-72 Thursday night.

Zellers' offensive rebound and shot capped a dramatic comeback by the Ducks (16-6, 8-5 Pac-10), who trailed 63-49 with 10:19 to go.

Ron Riley scored 21 points and Mario Bennett had 19 and 11 rebounds for the Sun Devils (19-7, 9-5).

Orlando Williams and Jeff Potter scored 12 points apiece for Oregon.

PHILADELPHIA Johnny Miller scored 25 points, including seven three-pointers, and Temple's outside shooting beat No. 5 Massachusetts' inside power 72-63 last night to snap the Minutemen's six-game winning streak in the series.

The Owls (16-8, 9-5 Atlantic 10) lost a 15-point first-half lead, but were able to take control in the second half as Miller, whose previous best was 21 points against West Virginia, hit five 3-pointers in the second half.

UMass (20-4, 10-3) was only able to score inside against Temple's zone defense and most of that was by sophomore center Marcus Camby, who finished with 25 points, 13 rebounds and eight blocked shots.
