HOUSTON - Robby Anderson had the most bittersweet of days during Temple's 24-13 loss to Houston in the inaugural American Athletic Conference championship game. The redshirt senior receiver had a fumble but also a touchdown reception, along with several other clutch catches. On Temple's second series, the 6-foot-3, 175-pound Anderson fumbled after making a 14-yard reception. He was hit by linebacker Elandon Roberts, with Houston safety Trevon Stewart recovering on the Cougars' 9-yard line.

Anjanea Williams loved children and dreamed of owning a day-care center before she was fatally shot outside a deli in Camden. Williams, 20, was an innocent bystander, waiting for food in January 2011 when she was caught in the middle of a gunfight. Six months earlier, the alleged shooter, Taurean Houston, had been bailed out of jail by his family, which posted $8,000 - a fraction of the $175,000 bail set for a charge of attempted murder. The case is one example highlighted in an 82-page state report, released Wednesday, that calls for changes in the bail-bond system to end "questionable" practices.

The 76ers could be a landing spot for Houston Rockets center Omer Asik in a trade, CBSSports.com reported Sunday night. The Rockets could make point guard Jeremy Lin and Asik available in trades as they pursue free-agent center Dwight Howard of the Los Angeles Lakers. Houston is expected to sign Howard, meaning Asik would become expendable. New Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie was an executive with Houston for the last eight seasons. Last summer, the Rockets signed Asik to a three-year, $25.1 million deal when he was a restricted free agent with the Chicago Bulls.

Today's top 10 list from the home office, as David Letterman might say, is the 10 reasons why it may not be a good idea for Temple to play at Houston this weekend: 10. The Cougars this year have already defeated Nevada-Las Vegas, the alma mater of Randall Cunningham, 69-0. 9. A former coach at Rice University in Houston, Temple coach Jerry Berndt will get a painful reminder that the real estate values are lower down there than up here. 8.

A year ago, Temple's chances at earning an NCAA berth were hurt considerably by a two-game road trip that began in the state of Texas and ended in Tulsa around this same time of the year. The Owls lost at SMU, 67-58, and then were routed at Tulsa, 55-39, in their lowest-scoring output of the season. The fact that Temple was the 69th choice of a 68-team NCAA field shows how important that road trip was. The Owls are in a similar situation. Temple is 16-9 overall and first in the American Athletic Conference with a 10-3 mark and very much in the NCAA conversation.
