It didn't take long for Fran Dunphy's blood to start boiling Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center. During the early stages of Temple's game against young but talented Texas, Dunphy watched the Longhorns leave Owls defenders in their wake, racing down the floor time and again for easy baskets until the Owls fell behind by 16 points. At the first television timeout, the red-faced Dunphy slammed down his folding chair, gathered the Owls around him, and told them they had better start guarding or else they were doomed.

In the first month of the season, Temple had problems keeping leads late in games. Anthony Lee made sure that didn't happen again on Wednesday night. Lee, a 6-foot-9 junior forward, scored seven of his 15 points in the final 2 minutes, 10 seconds and came up with an important offensive rebound to lift the Owls to a 77-69 victory over St. Joseph's in a Big Five game before 8,039 at the Liacouras Center. Lee, who also grabbed 11 rebounds, came up big at crunch time for the Owls (4-3, 2-0 Big Five)

CHARLESTON, S.C. - Clemson's top scorer, K.J. McDaniels, got going in the second half and proved too much for Temple in a 72-58 win over the Owls at TD Arena in the first round of the Charleston Classic Thursday night. Daniels finished with 20 points and eight rebounds as Clemson improved to 4-0. The Owls (1-3) will face Georgia at 7 p.m. Friday in the consolation bracket. Nemanja Djurisic had 19 points for the Bulldogs (1-2) in a 94-82 loss to Davidson (1-3). The Owls backcourt of junior Will Cummings and sophomore Quenton DeCosey proved difficult for the Tigers to handle in the first half, when the two guards combined for 20 first-half points.

TOWSON, Md. - Fran Dunphy watched his team fall apart in the game's last 9 minutes. After taking a seven-point lead, Temple looked crisp and on its way to a win. Instead, Temple suffered its second straight loss, 75-69, to Towson before 3,554 at SECU Arena last night. The Owls (1-2) played crisply for most of the game, but missed six consecutive field goals and committed four turnovers as the lead disappeared. "We panicked a little bit. I don't know that we're ready yet to win this game on the road against this particular group," Dunphy said.

TEMPLE'S FIVE seniors from last season's team are playing professionally in China, Japan, Germany, Luxembourg and Ukraine. This team's only senior is Dalton Pepper. The good news is that the young Owls were good enough to earn big leads against Penn on Saturday at the Palestra and Kent State last night at the Liacouras Center. The unsurprising news is they could not hold the lead either time. It worked out in the end against the Quakers, but did not work down the stretch against the Golden Flashes.

TEMPLE HAS probably undergone as much change from last season as any major men's basketball program. A team that came within a few plays of beating top seed Indiana in the third round of the NCAA Tournament said goodbye to five seniors, including Atlantic 10 Player of the Year Khalif Wyatt - who gave the Owls a chance against almost anyone - and a trio of fifth-year guys. Now they have been picked to finish in the middle of the new 10-team American Athletic Conference, which has Louisville (until it moves to the Atlantic Coast Conference next year)

Not long after the Temple men's basketball team returned from its late-summer trip to Europe, coach Fran Dunphy got to thinking about the Owls' first season in the American Athletic Conference. Temple lost five seniors from its sixth straight 20-win team, and Dunphy was looking to rebuild, mostly with the players who were still here. Players like sophomore guard Quenton DeCosey. After DeCosey averaged 1.9 points and 1.1 rebounds per game playing meager minutes as a freshman, Dunphy watched the 6-foot-5 sophomore guard from Union, N.J., light it up in the four games the Owls played abroad.

MEMPHIS - After years of having the Atlantic Ten bull's-eye firmly on his team's collective chest, Fran Dunphy showed up for his first American Athletic Conference Basketball Media Day on Wednesday at FedEx Forum, and found himself lying in the weeds. His Owls were picked a relatively distant fifth in the 10-team preseason coaches poll. "Laying in the weeds is good," said Dunphy, who has his youngest squad in his eight years at Temple. And he comes into a hybrid league that has a reigning national champion in Louisville (if only for this season)
