NEW YORK - Temple is more than the Khalif Wyatt show.
Swingman Scootie Randall, who is working with a shooting coach, is quietly in the midst of a strong bounce-back stretch.
So much so that maybe Randall - not Wyatt, the Atlantic Ten player of the year - is the biggest reason for the Owls' seven-game winning streak.
No. 3 seed Temple (23-8) expects to add to that streak in Friday night's A-10 tournament quarterfinal round here at the Barclays Center against sixth-seeded Massachusetts, a 77-72 winner over George Washington late Thursday night.
Randall has averaged 14.8 points during the streak after struggling for much of the season. Making shots, the recent graduate is drawing extra defensive attention, which has led to the Owls' recent balanced attack. With teams focusing on Wyatt and Randall, Jake O'Brien has also been getting plenty of three-point looks.
