Nov 20, 2022, 2:48 AM | Updated: 4:49 pm

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Maddy Siegrist scored 41 points and grabbed 16 rebounds, and No. 24 Villanova rallied from an eight-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat Temple 74-71 on Sunday.

The Wildcats (4-0) trailed 57-49 after three quarters, then held Temple without a point until 4:19 remained in the game. The Wildcats led 61-59 at that point, then later a jumper by Siegrist put them up 67-62 with 2:30 remaining. Villanova did not make another shot but connected on 7 of 10 free throws in the final minute.

Siegrist’s third career 40-point game was one off her career-high of 42 established last season in an overtime game against Marquette. Her career high in rebounds is 19. Christina Dalce had seven points and 12 rebounds for Villanova.

Tarriyonna Gary had career highs of 23 points and seven 3-pointers for Temple (1-3). Aleah Nelson scored 20 points.

It was Villanova’s fourth consecutive road game and, including the upcoming Gulf Coast Showcase, the Wildcats will play their first seven games away from home. The first home game will be against Creighton on Dec. 2.
