Jake O'Brien craves an opportunity to play in the NCAA tournament.
The former Boston University standout believes Temple, a team coming off five consecutive tourney appearances, will provide just that.
That's why the 6-foot-9 forward decided Wednesday to transfer to North Broad Street over Boston College, Providence, and Virginia.
"Coach [Fran] Dunphy is a great coach," O'Brien said. "After meeting his staff and the players, I knew it was the right fit for me."
The 23-year-old has one year of eligibility remaining and will be able to play right away. He will enroll as a graduate student at Temple in the fall.
