Heading into the Ivy League portion of its schedule, Penn needed a win at the Palestra on Saturday, and Binghamton was the perfect elixir. Led by the hustle and shooting of Matt Howard and a strong floor game from Jackson Donahue, the Quakers earned their first win over a Division I team since Nov. 25 with a convincing 80-45 victory over the Bearcats. "It was a great defensive effort," said Penn coach Steve Donahue, whose Quakers hadn't won by 30 points since beating Dartmouth, 78-47, on Feb. 4, 2011.

The aggressive defense that Temple called on last season to help the Owls in crucial moments was on display again Saturday night in a 34-26 victory at Cincinnati. The Owls (2-0, 1-0 American Athletic Conference) forced five turnovers - including four second-half interceptions of Bearcats quarterback Gunner Kiel - and held off a late Cincinnati rally in a huge win against the team that many have picked to win the conference. Leading 34-12, the Owls gave up 14 points in the fourth quarter.

CINCINNATI - Temple backed up its beat-down of Penn State last week by going on the road and holding off a late rally by Cincinnati for a 34-26 win Saturday night at Nippert Stadium. The Owls forced five turnovers by the Bearcats, and junior running back Jahad Thomas totaled 330 yards for the game and scored two touchdowns in the first 94 seconds of the second half. But Temple didn't seal the win until senior linebacker Tyler Matakevich caught a tipped pass in the end zone with 13 seconds remaining.

TOM BARWIN wasn't all that surprised when his son Connor, a freshman football player at Cincinnati, called home in January 2006 to impart the news that he was joining the Bearcats basketball team. For one thing, Connor had grown up more of a youth basketball star than a football player, working tirelessly on a court built in the Barwin backyard for him and his three older brothers. For another, this was Connor responding to a need - Cincinnati had fired basketball coach Bob Huggins, players had left the team, the Bearcats needed help.

A MONTH AGO, Temple dropped three games in 8 days, its only losses since mid-December. In the first two, at home against Tulsa and SMU, senior lead guard Will Cummings was limited with a lower-leg injury. Then, at Cincinnati, he couldn't even play. The Owls went down by 31, after being within one at halftime. Last night at the Liacouras Center, they got their first chance to get one of those teams back. Next week, they'll get two more when they travel to SMU and Tulsa. This time, Cummings went the full 40. It made a difference.

WHEN TEMPLE went to Cincinnati on Jan. 17, it was a one-point game at the break. By the end, it had become a 31-point game. The Bearcats made their first 11 shots after intermission and shot 77 percent in the closing 20 minutes, a half they won, 55-25, in a game they won, 84-53. "It was devastating, to be honest with you," coach Fran Dunphy recalled. "They beat us up pretty good. " The Owls (17-7, 8-3 American Conference) have won five straight since then. Tonight, they host Cincy (17-6, 8-3)

Connor Barwin arrived during halftime for LeSean McCoy's charity basketball game at Neumann University Saturday afternoon. The Eagles linebacker wore a pair of low-top running shoes and cutoff jeans. He said he did not plan to play, but McCoy told him he needed him on his team in a game that also featured former Eagle DeSean Jackson, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Dion Waiters, boxing champion Danny Garcia, and rapper Nelly. Barwin obliged. The former college basketball player showed he still had game, even while wearing denim.

The would-be hero was screaming as he ran downcourt pounding his chest, staring down the fans in the student section, who all had risen to their feet. Dalton Pepper, the soft-spoken transfer who struggled last season but has emerged as Temple's leading scorer in his senior year, was at the peak of one of the finest performances of his career. He scored a career-high 33 points, including 27 in the second half, to bring the Owls close, but not close enough, in an 80-76 loss to No. 15 Cincinnati in an American Athletic Conference game on Sunday afternoon at the Liacouras Center.
