The Colonials (14-5, 6-3 Atlantic 10) never trailed and beat Temple for only the second time in the series' last nine games.
Mark Tyndale scored 17 points, Mardy Collins added 13, and Keith Butler had 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Owls (10-9, 6-2). Tyndale (knee) and Dustin Salisbery (flu) did not start, but both came off the bench early in the first half.
Collins had consecutive dunks - including one off a steal by Salisbery - to make it 30-26, but the Colonials scored the first nine points of a 16-4 run to push the lead to 16 at the half.
Pinnock got the run going early with a 3-pointer, then finished off Carl Elliott's steal with a fastbreak dunk on the next possession.
Late in the first half, Thompson beat a couple of defenders on a nifty crossover, drove the lane and was fouled on a layup. He sank the free throw for a three-point play and a 44-28 lead.
Thompson had a scare when he was clotheslined in the air by Dion Dacons and took a hard bump on his back. Dacons was whistled for an intentional foul, Thompson shook off the fall and sank a couple of free throws for a 63-44 lead.
Temple shot a woeful 33 percent from the floor and missed 20 of 24 3-point attempts. The Owls were just 14-for-24 from the free-throw line.
Rice scored eight points for George Washington. He was a three-time state scoring champion at Strawberry Mansion High School and scored 2,681 career points, breaking Wilt Chamberlain's Philadelphia career scoring record.
