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.

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.

BERNARD HOPKINS doesn't want to be on any pound-for-pound list should he beat Sergey Kovalev. To place him on one of those lists with some of the top fighters in the world would, as he said, make him human. With a 50th birthday approaching in January, Hopkins continues to reaffirm his new nickname of "The Alien. " So there he sat in the Fox Gittis Room inside the Liacouras Center at Temple yesterday, waxing poetic on his age, his upcoming light heavyweight unification bout, boxing history and, of course, pound-for-pound lists.

Students roared for the Pickett Campus. They shouted for the Shoemaker Campus, cheered for Simon Gratz High School, and yelled for the Thomas Campus. But at the end of "College Signing Day," they united to create one booming cry for what they had in common: They all attend Mastery Charter Schools. Tuesday's ceremony at Temple University's Liacouras Center was Mastery's second annual College Signing Day, recognizing 460 high school seniors who have pledged to attend and graduate from college.

IT WAS the perfect ending to a perfect Public League season for Imhotep Institute Charter High guard Deja Reynolds. After verbally committing to play at Temple earlier in the season, the 5-9 junior helped the Imhotep Panthers (22-2) earn a 41-38 victory yesterday over Northeast High (17-4) in the Public League girls' title game at the Liacouras Center. For Reynolds, winning the school's first title was even more bittersweet because it was played at Temple. "It means a lot for me to do it here at Temple," Reynolds said.

Temple showed great improvement from its earlier meeting with Connecticut, but a poor offensive night contributed to the same outcome.   The Owls shot just 19 for 56 (33.9 percent) from the field and committed 16 turnovers during a 68-55 loss to the No. 21 Huskies in an American Athletic Conference matchup Thursday night at the Liacouras Center.   Coming off Sunday's 71-64 win over then-No. 23 SMU, Temple fell to 7-18, 2-11, while the Huskies are 21-5, 9-4.   On Jan. 21, Temple lost at UConn, 90-66, but this time the Huskies had to work much harder on offense and shot 2 for 13 from beyond the arc. "We had a couple of opportunities, wide-open jump shots that just didn't go, and to win a game against this quality of opponent, you have to make shots, and we didn't do that," Temple coach Fran Dunphy said.

IF IT'S TEMPLE basketball and it's Thursday, then it could only mean one thing: yet another game against a Top 25 opponent. This time, it was No. 21 Connecticut, coached by former Sixers guard Kevin Ollie. On Sunday, it was No. 23 SMU and Larry Brown. Last Friday, it was your defending national champion, Rick Pitino's No. 13 Louisville. Tomorrow, Temple will be at No. 22 Memphis, which already beat the Owls by 10 here Jan. 10. Then there's a rematch with Louisville - which won that first meeting by 24 - down there to close out the month.

In the fall of 1997, not long into Larry Brown's first season as the 76ers' head coach, Fran Dunphy started visiting their practices, eager to observe a brilliant basketball mind in action. Dunphy had never met Brown before, but in maintaining a long friendship with Gregg Popovich, one of Brown's apprentices, he'd heard Popovich praise Brown over the years and had come to admire him from afar. Now here was an opportunity to glean some insight from the man himself, to watch Brown at work - only Brown wasn't content to have Dunphy simply sit there.
