Temple was snubbed from the NCAA Tournament, which provided Will Cummings and the Owls a chance to make a statement in their 73-67 NIT win over Bucknell Wednesday.
Temple is putting together an impressive résumé in their trek to get back to the NCAA Tournament, but is also staying focused on the task at hand and treating each game the same.
Temple continued its push toward the NCAA Tournament Saturday, beating East Carolina, 66-53, for its seventh straight win and 13th in 16 games.
Temple held Tulane to eight first-half points, the lowest ever in any half at the Liacouras Center, en route to extending its winning run with a 55–37 victory Saturday.
Mark Williams was hoisting up shots that Fran Dunphy doesn’t necessarily want him taking. But on Tuesday night, those shots fell, and Temple defeated Penn, 76-67.
