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.

His name has always been Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson. It was just that the Chester Upland School District unofficially dropped the hyphen for school purposes. And what soft-spoken first-grader wants to make a big deal over having his last name shortened? "Since that's where it started, I just used Jefferson," he said. Years later, when he became recognized as Temple's undersized do-everything power forward, he confused some people by changing his name from "Jefferson" to "Hollis-Jefferson" on the back on his jersey.

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.

Martin Luther King's march to its first Public League boys' basketball championship was a chemistry-building process that involved blending a bunch of new players. "We spent a lot of time together on and off the court," said 6-foot-8, 200-pound senior forward Jahmir Taylor. "It was important that we get to know each other, become a family. You have to be ready to handle the ups and downs of a season. " Sunday afternoon at Temple's Liacouras Center, Taylor and four other transfers helped the new-look Cougars hold off Constitution, 46-44, for top league honors.

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.

Two teams going opposite ways will be playing for the Big Five championship when Villanova visits Temple in Saturday's 4 p.m. game at the Liacouras Center.

Temple (6-13) snapped an eight-game losing streak with Wednesday's 88-82 win over visiting Rutgers. The Owls are 2-1 in the Big Five. Villanova, ranked No. 9 nationally by the Associated Press, is 18-2 and 3-0 in the Big Five.

The would-be hero was screaming as he ran downcourt pounding his chest, staring down the fans in the student section, who all had risen to their feet. Dalton Pepper, the soft-spoken transfer who struggled last season but has emerged as Temple's leading scorer in his senior year, was at the peak of one of the finest performances of his career. He scored a career-high 33 points, including 27 in the second half, to bring the Owls close, but not close enough, in an 80-76 loss to No. 15 Cincinnati in an American Athletic Conference game on Sunday afternoon at the Liacouras Center.

TEMPLE HAS beaten a Top 10 team in each of the last five seasons, three times on North Broad. So what made you think they couldn't knock off 15th-ranked Cincinnati yesterday at the Liacouras Center? Was it because the visitors had won 11 straight, while the Owls had lost their last seven? Or maybe the fact that Temple trailed by 18 midway through the second half had something to do with it. But the Owls, who've had a chance in just about every game, kept playing. As they usually do. And with 36 seconds to go, they finally pulled even, on Dalton Pepper's eighth three-pointer, which matched David Hawkins' 2004 record for the most by an Owl in this building.
