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.

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.

Since the first game he was eligible, Temple's Dec. 18 win at Delaware, Jesse Morgan has produced his share of buzz on North Broad Street. The Massachusetts transfer at least tied for the team lead in scoring in each of his first four games and earned American Athletic Conference player-of-the-week honors. But Temple's fifth consecutive win, an 84-78 victory Sunday against Central Florida at the Liacouras Center, in part exemplified the team's depth, something it lacked last season.

At this point, opponents have to know how it's going to be. A Temple shot goes up - maybe a corner three, even a fastbreak layup - and one Owls player must be accounted for. It may not matter. "I hope - I feel like that should be in the scouting report," Jaylen Bond said Sunday in a hallway of the Liacouras Center. "That they do their best to try and box me out. " Bond suffered a sprained ankle just before the season began, which probably kept people from seeing exactly what Temple had in the transfer from Texas early on. It's obvious now, beyond Sunday's big offensive showing, when Bond hit 10 of 15 shots for a career-high 21 points, scoring 13 of Temple's first 19 points as the Owls beat Central Florida, 84-78.

Temple coach Fran Dunphy recalled attending 76ers practices when Kevin Ollie was on the roster, and he took note of the way Ollie worked and how he conducted himself. "His level of professionalism was at the highest level," Dunphy said Tuesday. "I was not even a little bit surprised by his success after becoming a college basketball coach. " The pinnacle of that success took Ollie just two seasons as Connecticut's head coach to reach. The Huskies captured the national championship last year, defeating St. Joseph's and Villanova on their way to the title.
