PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Temple will look to make it two straight Atlantic 10 wins on Wednesday night when they visit George Washington.
The Owls improved to 11-4 overall, 1-1 in the conference, on Saturday when they beat the St. Louis Billikens, 64-54.
“We obviously needed the win very badly,” Temple head coach Fran Dunphy tells KYW Newsradio. “They are a really solid defensive team and they do a really nice job on the offensive end, too. So just to come out with a victory was very important for us.”
44 of Temple’s 64 points in the win over St. Louis came from two players. Senior guard Khalif Wyatt had 24 and sophomore forward Anthony Lee poured in 20 to go along with a team high 10 rebounds.
“I think Anthony stepping up and doing what he did on the offensive end was very important for us,” Dunphy says. “We have to be spreading our scoring around more than we have been.”
