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)

IT IS NO surprise that defending national champion Louisville was picked to win the inaugural season of the American Athletic Conference. The Cardinals return three starters from a team that won the rigorous Big East Tournament before hoisting the national championship trophy in Atlanta last April. All of the teams, including the Temple Owls, realize the task at hand in the newly aligned AAC. The Cardinals head up a strong conference, but are clearly the team to beat - that is, until they bolt for the Atlantic Coast Conference next season.

NEW YORK - As its media day began Tuesday, the Atlantic Ten put out its preseason poll. Quick scan for the locals . . . La Salle, third. Seems about right. St. Joseph's, fifth. Sounds fair. How far down is Temple picked? . . . Where is Temple ? There is no Temple, of course. (Momentary brain lock, even as I knew I was writing about Temple not being here.) St. Joe's coach Phil Martelli said he had the same fleeting thought as he waited for the train at 30th Street Station - "I wonder where Dunph is?"

On Monday, as Temple's basketball team gathered for the first official practice of the season, Will Cummings and Anthony Lee didn't need anyone to remind them how different things are. "There are a lot of faces that were here last year that are gone," Lee said. "But that's what the time we have now is for. We're going to keep working and working to make sure that it all comes together on the floor. " Lee is a 6-foot-8 forward who returns as Temple's leading rebounder (6.8 per game last season)

THE TEMPLE men's basketball team will be doing something a little different this summer. While the Owls will still be shooting, rebounding and scrimmaging, they also will be writing. The Owls will be taking a transcontinental flight to Europe on Aug. 14 for a 10-day training trip. Owls coach Fran Dunphy will have them focused on more than just basketball while they are overseas. "All of our guys are going to keep a journal and work hard at making the best memories that they can from this trip," Dunphy said.

DAYTON, Ohio - Sometimes, it falls to a single player to heal a program's reputation. In Temple's case, it fell to, of all people, Khalif Wyatt. Temple entered this NCAA Tournament everyone's favorite loser, an annual disappointment just waiting to happen. The Owls made it to the Dance each of the last 5 years, but they won just one game. Twice, they lost their opener as a No. 5 seed, to a 12 seed. This time, propelled by Wyatt, of all people, they beat eighth-seeded North Carolina State on Friday in the East Regional, and they led top-seeded Indiana here Sunday until the final 79 seconds.
