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.

DAYTON, Ohio - There is almost no chance Fran Dunphy will ever storm into another coach's postgame news conference and threaten to beat him up. And it is impossible to picture Tom Crean losing his mind and throwing a folding chair across the court. These are good things, to be sure. And yet . . . The last time Temple and Indiana played each other in the NCAA tournament, John Chaney and Bob Knight were at the height of their turbulent Hall of Fame careers. They had never faced each other until that second-round game in 1994 in the old USAir Arena in Landover, Md. It was like having a couple of fictional characters walking around.

DAYTON, Ohio - Fran Dunphy couldn't quite figure it out. His Temple basketball team had just hung on for a program-energizing NCAA tournament win over North Carolina State, and many of the questions seemed to be about Khalif Wyatt's thumb. The senior guard jammed his left thumb during the second half and had to come out for a couple of minutes. The athletic training staff wrapped the thumb and Wyatt returned to the floor. Was Dunphy worried? Did he think Temple could have withstood the Wolfpack's frenetic comeback charge without Wyatt?
