PHILADELPHIA (AP) Temple's double-digit lead was slipping away and John Chaney was cussing in the huddle when David Hawkins quieted his tempestuous coach.
''I told him to calm down, that we were going to win it for him,'' Hawkins said.
Just like that, the Owls put the game away and gave their coach a milestone victory.
Chaney won his 700th career game Wednesday night when the Owls beat St. Bonaventure 76-57 behind Hawkins' 21 points.
Chaney, who turned 72 last week, is 700-278 in 32 seasons as coach at Division II Cheyney State and Temple. He is 475-219 in 22 seasons with the Owls.
