The trial for Temple basketball star Khalif Wyatt that was scheduled for Thursday in Atlantic City municipal court has been adjourned, according to Wyatt's attorney, Peter Sarkos. The new date is Aug. 6 at 1:30 p.m. Wyatt was charged with engaging in prostitution and resisting arrest. He was one of 28 people arrested on June 10 and charged as part of a two-day Atlantic City prostitution sweep conducted by the city's Special Investigation Unit. Wyatt, who was celebrating his 21st birthday, according to his Twitter feed, will be a senior this coming school year.

Khalif Wyatt is aware of his role for Temple. "My role right now is come off the bench and still bring energy," the sophomore guard said. "But I'm also like more of a leader, now. Guys listen to me. I have more of a voice. "And I score points, try to be aggressive on offense, and not be a liability on defense. " On an injury-plagued team, the 6-foot-4, 205-pounder has been arguably one of the most-reliable Owls. Wyatt filled in nicely for five games as the starting point guard while Juan Fernandez dealt with a bone bruise in his left knee.

DAYTON, Ohio - If great players are defined by their performances on the biggest stage, Friday night is the biggest night of Khalif Wyatt's basketball life. Yes, Wyatt played in NCAA Tournament games each of his first three seasons. But he has never been Temple's best player, with 19.8 points and 4.1 assists per game. He has never been the Big 5 and Atlantic 10 Player of the Year. He never has been the face of frustration. Before this season, Wyatt was just a part of the fabric of failure, an ever larger piece of the Owls' 1-5 tournament record since Fran Dunphy took over the program seven seasons ago. That includes two losses as a No. 5 seed in their tournament opener; in 2010 to Cornell, and, last year, to South Florida.

PERHAPS THE most impressive player for the 76ers last July at the Orlando Pro Summer League was Temple product Khalif Wyatt. That play has led to him signing a multiyear contract with the team, according to a team source. Wyatt, who went undrafted in June, averaged 13.8 points, 3.2 assistas and 1.6 steals in Orlando. The combo guard can handle the ball and has a quirky offensive game, much like former Sixers point guard and NBA veteran Andre Miller. He has an uncanny ability to get to the basket and draw fouls from anywhere on the court.

Another chapter was added to the impressive story of Khalif Wyatt on Saturday. With a sensational late-game performance, Wyatt lifted Temple to a 76-70 victory over Rhode Island at the Liacouras Center. The score was tied, 64-64, with 6 minutes, 10 seconds remaining when the senior guard took over. He scored seven of the Owls' final 12 points. "Definitely, when the game gets close down the stretch, my teammates depend on me to make a play - whether that's make a play for my teammates or make a play for myself," said Wyatt, who made 9 of 11 foul shots in scoring a team-high 24 points.

The fun continues for Temple - barely. Khalif Wyatt scored 12 of the Owls' final 14 points Thursday night as Temple defeated Detroit, 83-78, at the Liacouras Center. It was Temple's fourth straight win. The victory gave the Owls (20-8) their sixth straight 20-win season to tie a school record for the most consecutive 20-win seasons. Most significant, they beat another quality opponent in the Titans (19-11), which could go a long way in securing an NCAA tournament at-large bid. But it was far from a picture perfect victory for the Owls, who battled back from an 11-point first-half deficit.

Did anybody think that Khalif Wyatt would not be the Atlantic Ten Conference player of the year? The answer is probably no. So the inevitable happened Tuesday when the A-10 named the Temple guard its top player in a vote by a panel of the conference's 16 head coaches. What Wyatt did this season was unbelievable. He was the conference's leading scorer at 19.9 points per game, with five games of 30 or more points and 616 points for the season. The 6-foot-4 senior from Norristown is the first Temple player since Pepe Sanchez in 2000 and the 10th overall to win the award.

Temple guard Khalif Wyatt worked out for the Washington Wizards at the Verizon Center on Thursday. He shared the court with Missouri's Keion Bell and Laurence Bowers, Syracuse's James Southerland, Ohio State's Deshaun Thomas, and Cal State Fullerton's D.J. Seeley. Wyatt also worked out with the Detroit Pistons and Houston Rockets earlier this week. "The workout with the Wizards went good," said Wyatt, a 6-foot-4 guard. "I was in a good group and played under some really talented coaches, and they pushed me during the entire workout.

DAYTON, Ohio - Temple guard Khalif Wyatt lost track of time as he watched a free throw from Dayton's Josh Benson spin on the rim - if the ball fell in, the Owls would probably be forced into overtime despite his heroics. If it spun out, the team would escape UD Arena on Sunday with a 72-71 victory. "You have no control over the game and you're sitting there hoping for the best," Wyatt said. The ball did spin out, and Temple held on for the win. Temple (16-7, 5-4 Atlantic Ten)

IF YOU TUNED OUT after Kansas was wiped out by Kentucky, 72-40, on Nov. 18 and assumed than any team, even Kansas, that had the Nos. 1 and 3 picks in the 2014 NBA draft was going to take a giant step backward, you made a mistake. KU has not lost since. The Jayhawks have played teams with combined records of 67-22. They have beaten Utah, Florida, Michigan State, Tennessee, Rhode Island and Georgetown (on the road). Bill Self's team is so deep he benched one player for the first half Saturday against Lafayette and started another who had scored 31 points in nine games.

Just before Temple's Class of 2014 walked across the Liacouras Center stage Thursday morning, Betsy Manning shot stills of their shoes for Twitter, Flickr, and posterity. No pump - or toe - was turned away, because Manning's work has little to do with surnames Blahnik or Louboutin and everything to do with documenting the seniors' final show of self-expression as college students. "In the last five years, shoes worn at graduation have gotten so much more radical," said Manning, who has worked as the Temple University photographer for 10 years.

How appropriate that the summer of 2013 saw the Temple men's basketball team embark on a nine-day European trip. As the young Owls walked the Avenue des Champs-Elysees and later toured the Coliseum in Rome, they were exposed to cultures, languages, and customs they had never encountered. As new as that experience was, so, too, will be the 2013-14 season for the Owls. In their eighth season under coach Fran Dunphy, the Owls face an uphill battle in extending their string of six consecutive NCAA tournament appearances.

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.

THURSDAY WAS, as always, the hardest day to be a coach for Brett Brown. That's because, just like at every level he's been a coach, he had to cut players, thus diminishing their basketball dreams in some sense. Brown and general manager Sam Hinkie broke the bad news to Khalif Wyatt, Vander Blue, Mac Koshwal and Royce White on Thursday, trimming the roster to 16, one above the limit that must be reached on Monday. Wyatt and Blue were understandable cuts, as there simply was more talent in front of them in Michael Carter-Williams, James Anderson, Tony Wroten, Darius Morris and Evan Turner, who can play either guard spot.

There's a great deal of uncertainty about whether the Sixers will offer Evan Turner a contract extension by Thursday's deadline. But the 6-foot-7 swingman, who is heading into the final year of his contract, is not concerned. "I'm going to get money regardless," he said after Friday's practice at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic medicine. "I'm not really going to worry about that. "I just want to take it day by day and keep becoming a better player. " Turner expected to be traded this summer.

The 76ers said goodbye to Khalif Wyatt, Royce White, Vander Blue, and Mac Koshwal on Thursday. The four were waived a day after the team's final preseason game, a 125-102 loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Sixers' roster now stands at 16 players. NBA teams must trim their rosters to 15 players by 5 p.m. Monday. White's release was perhaps the biggest surprise. The power forward, acquired in a July trade with the Houston Rockets, was the 16th overall pick in the 2012 draft.

ROSTER TRIMMINGS by a team getting ready for a regular season that could include three times as many losses as wins usually wouldn't raise many eyebrows, but the cuts the 76ers made yesterday sort of did just that. Gone is Temple product Khalif Wyatt, who went undrafted but impressed the Sixers' staff in the Orlando Pro Summer League and throughout training camp with his commitment to weight loss and giving himself the best chance to latch on to the team. In the end, though, it wasn't enough.

Sixers coach Brett Brown said he heard Lavoy Allen had overslept. Rookie guard Khalif Wyatt heard Allen was sick. Either way, Allen missed Saturday morning's open practice at the Palestra, and Brown said he will take care of it. "It's all part of the culture, the culture we're trying to get right," Brown said. "We will deal with him - I will deal with him. What else can you say?" On Friday, Twitter posts reported, Allen was at Temple basketball's Cherry and White night at the Liacouras Center.

THE PREGAME jog that 76ers coach Brett Brown took at FDR Park was quite refreshing, he said, as he gets acclimated to his new surroundings. Overseeing his squad's 127-97 preseason loss to the undermanned Brooklyn Nets at the Wells Fargo Center last night must have been as grueling as a marathon for Brown. Though playing without a pair of All-Stars - guard Deron Williams (sprained ankle) and forward Paul Pierce (rest) - the remaining Nets still strolled through a men-vs.-boys win, crushing the Sixers on the boards (54-31)
