PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Temple Owls will try to shake off back-to-back losses on Thursday night when they welcome South Florida to the Liacouras Center for an American Athletic Conference game.
The Owls are 5-7 on the season (0-2 in the AAC) and they are also dealing with injuries. The torn meniscus suffered by sophomore Daniel Dingle has left the Owls with just nine players on the roster. Then in Saturday’s loss to Central Florida, freshman forward Mark Williams suffered an ankle injury.
“We’re approaching a day-to-day status [for Williams],” Temple head coach Fran Dunphy tells KYW Newsradio. “I don’t know that he’ll be ready on Thursday, but hopefully after that he’ll be able to give us some minutes and get into a game. I think the swelling has gone down, I think we’re in decent shape here, the doctors and the trainers are pleased with his progress after Saturday.”
