GREENVILLE, N.C. - March Madness might be in Temple's future, but the only thing the Owls are focused on right now is Connecticut. After winning at East Carolina, 70-56, last night, the Owls have tomorrow's regular-season finale against visiting UConn and the American Athletic Conference Tournament left to try to pad their NCAA Tournament resume, but they insist they are not worried about what the bracketologists are thinking. At least not yet. "That's what I've been preaching for the past couple days.

Temple's Josh Brown has come a long way in a year. Last season as a freshman, the guard averaged just 2.7 points, and by his own admission, he wasn't very interested in taking the big shot - or any shot at all. This season, he is averaging 6.3 points in 21.7 minutes and has a much different mind-set on the offensive end. "Last year I didn't want to touch the ball. I don't know why and it was a confidence thing, I guess," Brown said. "I wasn't putting the work in, but now that I have I feel I can make those plays, so now it is just a confidence thing.

At the time, Fran Dunphy could feel the wave coming, and only in retrospect did he see a way to keep it from crashing upon him and those Kansas coaches and players along the sideline at the Wells Fargo Center. This was Dec. 22. Dunphy took a timeout with Temple leading the No. 10-ranked Jayhawks by 27 points and with 50 seconds left in regulation, the Owls' 77-52 victory a formality. Already, the Temple players were lining up near the scorer's table, juiced and ready to celebrate their upset, and already Temple fans and students were nearing the court, preparing to storm it at the sound of the final buzzer.

Over his 26 years as a head college basketball coach, first at Penn, then at Temple, Fran Dunphy has guided 15 teams to the NCAA tournament, and some of those journeys were easier than others. Sometimes his teams coasted into the tournament, as the Quakers did winning nine Ivy League regular-season championships and earning the accompanying automatic berths. Sometimes they had to white-knuckle it, as the Owls did in running the table at the Atlantic Ten tournament in 2008 and 2009.

ON WEDNESDAY, Fran Dunphy said his Temple team could lose to anybody. For a while last night at the Liacouras Center, the Owls tried to prove him right. Coming off back-to-back road losses at SMU and Tulsa, the top two teams in the American Athetlic Conference, Temple hosted a Houston team that had won twice since December. And only once in the AAC. That was by two points. Neither was on the road. Yet for the fourth straight game, and seventh time in eight, the Cougars led at the half.

DALLAS - Neither a boisterous crowd nor a nationally ranked team seemed to faze two of Temple's youngest players in the most pressurized of settings. During Thursday's 67-58 American Athletic Conference loss at Southern Methodist, before a frenzied, sellout crowd of 6,852 at Moody Coliseum, Temple sophomore guard Josh Brown and 6-foot-9 freshman Obi Enechionyia kept their cool. Each scored eight points off the bench. Brown also added three rebounds and two assists in 22 minutes.

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)

MEMPHIS - Josh Brown found the net just once. But timing is everything, and Brown's short bank shot with 2.4 seconds remaining gave Temple a 61-60 comeback victory over Memphis on Saturday at the FedEx Forum, and a key foothold in the American Athletic Conference standings. Rallying from a 16-point first-half deficit, the Owls (17-7, 8-3) won their fifth straight game and kept at least a share of third place in the AAC going into the final two weeks of the regular season. Will Cummings hit a free throw with 35 seconds left to give Temple a 59-58 edge.

CAROLINE GOLA'S wonderfully expressive face told two stories yesterday afternoon when a sculpture of her husband was unveiled at La Salle University. She was incredibly proud of what Tom Gola accomplished, what he meant to his school and his city and how many people from his past were at Hayman Center/Tom Gola Arena to honor him. She also felt the weight of knowing that today is the 1-year anniversary of the legend's death. "It's just hard right now," she said after the ceremony, her feelings impossible to hide.
