Temple's basketball team prides itself on facing tough nonconference opponents.
That's why the Owls will play national powers Kansas, Duke, and Syracuse next season.
The Kansas game will be part of a home-and-home series. Temple will face the Jayhawks next season at Allen Fieldhouse in Lawrence, Kan. The teams will meet again during the 2014-15 season in Philadelphia, most likely at the Wells Fargo Center.
Temple also is scheduled to play Duke next season at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, N.J. It will mark the third consecutive season the teams will square off.
