Temple forward Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson was among 105 Owls student-athletes who graduated Thursday at the Liacouras Center.

Hollis-Jefferson led Temple in blocks in his senior season and tied for first on the team in steals with guard Khalif Wyatt. He averaged 8.9 points, 6.1 rebounds and 3.4 assists in 33 games for the Owls.

"For now, I want to focus on playing basketball for as long as I can," the former Chester High star said. "I'm still looking at options on where to go and where to play. I'm talking to my agent; anywhere would be great.

"I feel pretty good that I was able to come from Chester and come to the university and get my degree."

He received a degree in social work.
