We're Dancing: Temple University

Lucky-owl_medium

Temple would like to wish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day.  Dionte Christmas and the 4th seeded Temple Owls have robbed another team of an NCAA at large bid with their 69-64 victory in the Atlantic 10 Conference Championship.  The defeat of the Duquesne makes that the Owls second straight conference championship and puts them into a post season invitational that they would otherwise be watching on CBS. 

More on the spoilers of the A-10 after the jump.

Location: "City of Brotherly Love"- Philly, PA

Enrollment:  36.686

Record: 22-11 (11-5)

Leading Scorers:  Dionte Christmas (18.9 ppg), Lavoy Allen (11.0 ppg), Ryan Brooks (10.6 ppg)

What to know:

  • Dionte Christmas.  Temple will only go as far as Christmas can take them.  He has the capability to fill it up and take over a close game.
  • They have now won five straight and do own victories over Tennessee and Penn State in out of conference battles.  Their strength of schedule is nothing to write home about at 43rd in the nation, but they are 2-2 vs. top 25 teams.

Projection:  Temple will most likely stencil their name on a 12 or 13 seed, creating a poor draw for a 4 or 5.  The A-10 isn't a joke so Temple crush someone's weekend dreams.
