PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Temple Owls will look to extend their winning streak to four straight games on Saturday as they host the Texas Longhorns at the Center.
The Owls are coming off their second Big 5 victory in as many tries on Wednesday night as they outlasted St. Joe’s, 77-69, at the Liacouras Center.
“It was a good win because I really like St. Joe’s team,” Temple head coach Fran Dunphy tells KYW Newsradio. “I think they are really balanced, they have a good program. I think (head coach) Phil (Martelli) does a great job with them. We were really excited by our win. It was tie score with a couple of minutes left and things just seemed to go our way. We made a couple of good plays and some foul shots down the stretch. Anytime you can win those close ones, it means a lot to your team.”
