This might not be a popular sentiment, but I'll take Best Coast over Green Day any day, even though, at the Liacouras Center on Wednesday, it's Billie Joe Armstrong's Berkeley-based punks who will headline and Bethany Cosentino and Bobb Bruno's sun-soaked garage pop that will open the bill. "I can't compare myself to Billie Joe," says Best Coast's singer-songwriter Cosentino via e-mail. "I'm not even on that level. One of the first songs I learned on guitar was 'Time of Your Life.' Green Day was influential to me as a teenager, and later on, as a writer.

With the 2014 release of his debut full-length studio album People Keep Talking , University of Pennsylvania graduate Steven Markowitz - nom de rap , Hoodie Allen - fully realizes his dream of making pop-rap harder and sharper without losing its melodic sensibilities. "Don't waste time trying to convince everyone of your purpose, just know and focus on bettering yourself," Markowitz said from New York. He plays the Liacouras Center on Saturday. " People Keep Talking took a minute to drop, considering the mix-tapes and EPs like All American [I did]

Several years ago, when Temple assistant women's basketball coach Ervin Monier was on a summer recruiting jaunt at a national tournament in Washington for his boss, Dawn Staley, he was attracted to the play of 6-foot-2 forward-center Candice Dupree. "Everyone was busy watching someone at the other court, but I could see she could be something special for us," Monier said yesterday. If the sophomore from Tampa, Fla., wasn't attracting a crowd that day, she certainly is now. Dupree was the most valuable player of the Atlantic Ten Conference tournament two weeks ago in leading the 21-9 Owls to their second title in three seasons and an automatic berth into the NCAA 64-team field.

The latest chapter in this doomed Temple season unfolded a little differently last night. This time, the Owls came from ahead and lost it at the end. They were nine points clear of Richmond, looking as if they would get to smile for a change. That was with 9 minutes, 42 seconds remaining in the game at the Liacouras Center. The clock might as well have said midnight. The Owls made only one more shot from the field, when Temple center Kevin Lyde picked up an air ball and banked it in. Some things had not changed.

Temple point guard Will Cummings and forward Jaylen Bond were 70 seconds into their postgame session with the media Tuesday night when they were asked how helpful the crowd had been during the Owls' 16-point win over Cincinnati. The man asking the question looked young enough to be a Temple student. If he was pleased by the raucous atmosphere inside the Liacouras Center during a terrific performance by Cummings, Bond, and the entire Temple team, he had every right to be. "It was a great crowd," Cummings said.

IN HIS first eight seasons at Temple, Fran Dunphy made the NCAA Tournament six times. In those seasons his teams lost back-to-back games in February only once. That was back in 2009. And those Owls would win the next five after that to get their second consecutive Atlantic 10 championship. A week ago, these Owls were riding a seven-game winning streak. Then they lost at SMU and Tulsa, the top two teams in the American Conference standings. So, what now? Well, the good news for the Owls (19-9, 10-5)

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.

ISSUE | NEW CHARTERS Focus on oversight before expansion As the son of a Philadelphia teacher, a graduate of a public school, and a dean at a public charter school, I appreciate the important role different types of schools play. I don't see a difference between me and fellow educators in traditional public schools. We all want our students to excel. Yet for that to happen, we must put aside differences, rebuild trust, and advocate for a sustainable solution to the city schools crisis.

The first-half Temple defense was simply smothering. It was also record-setting in a hard-to-believe opening 20 minutes. While the offense still is inconsistent, if Temple can maintain the defensive effort it gave in a 55-37 American Athletic Conference win over Tulane on Saturday at the Liacouras Center, then the Owls will make a serious run at an NCAA berth. Tulane's 37 points tied the lowest total this season by a Temple opponent, matching American in a 40-37, season-opening Owls win, and marked the first time since the 1993-94 season that Temple had held two opponents under 40 points.

Temple senior point guard Will Cummings won't proclaim himself 100 percent, but he's getting there, and the Owls are clearly following his lead on both ends of the court. Not only is Cummings the floor leader, but he is also the defensive catalyst for a Temple team that will continue to make its NCAA tournament push while hosting Tulane in Saturday's noon American Athletic Conference game at the Liacouras Center. On Jan. 7, Temple (14-7 overall, 5-3 AAC) earned a 64-56 win at Tulane (13-8, 4-5)

Point guard Will Cummings regained his health. His Temple team rediscovered its perimeter game. The collective confidence of the Owls also returned Thursday in a 73-48 rout of South Florida at the Liacouras Center. The win snapped a three-game losing streak and boosted Temple's record to 13-7 and 4-3 in the American Athletic Conference. It also matched Temple's largest margin of victory this season, equaled in a 77-52 win over Kansas. The recent losses came against Tulsa, SMU, and Cincinnati, the top three teams in the AAC.

This one was a true punch in the gut for Temple's basketball team. Leading by 13 points early in the second half, the Owls saw Philadelphia product Markus Kennedy put the team on his back as SMU defeated Temple, 60-55, Wednesday night at the Liacouras Center. It was the second straight loss for Temple (12-6, 3-2 American Athletic Conference) and the second consecutive game in which the Owls squandered a double-digit lead in the second half. SMU has won 11 of 12 to improve to 13-4, 4-1. "We have got to find a way to close out games," said Temple guard Jesse Morgan, who had a team-high 15 points.

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 said he considered giving Jaylen Bond his first start as an Owl yesterday, but that was before the forward turned his right ankle in Friday's practice. It probably won't be much longer, then, until the Plymouth-Whitemarsh product slides into the starting spot he would've likely held from Day 1 if not for a preseason injury on the same ankle. Though he's still working his way back to full strength, Bond yesterday produced by far the best of his four games with Temple.
