Inside a cramped little cauldron called McGonigle Hall, more than 3,900 partisan spectators will bring the building to a boil - a surefire indication that Massachusetts is in town. When Temple goes against UMass (19-0, 7-0) in tonight's battle between Atlantic Ten East Division leaders, the crowd will be wild-eyed and roaring. The Minutemen's No. 1 ranking helps. So does the heated rivalry, with hard feelings stemming from one-point margins and one coach threatening to kill the other, as well as a variety of things in between.

John Chaney coached his first game at McGonigle Hall on Jan. 6, 1983. Temple defeated Rhode Island, 103-94, one of only three times - all at home - in his 15 seasons on North Broad Street that the Owls scored in triple figures. Chaney says he doesn't remember many details. He does recall the inaugural game at McGonigle, on Dec. 2, 1969, when Harry Litwack's Owls beat St. John's, 60-59. Chaney was coaching at Gratz High at the time. "I still have the ticket in my drawer at home," Chaney said.

St. Joseph's won its first game ever at McGonigle Hall yesterday, defeating Temple, 71-66, in the Atlantic Ten opener. And while things fell into place for St. Joseph's, they only continued to fall apart for Temple. The Hawks, who have played well in stretches during a 5-2 start, sustained their effort for the entire 40 minutes yesterday, shooting three-pointers early and free throws late, minimizing turnovers, hustling to rebounds and loose balls, and never trailing, answering every Temple run with a flurry of their own. Temple, 4-0 only two weeks ago but now a loser of three of its last four, sorely missed point guard Vic Carstarphen, out six to eight weeks with a broken left fibula.

Temple's goal to build a football stadium on campus has received "some seven-figure commitments" for funding, the chairman of the university's board of trustees said Thursday. Chairman Patrick O'Connor confirmed that a proposed 35,000-seat stadium with an estimated cost of $100 million is being pursued for the northwest corner of campus. He said the issue is expected to be discussed at the December trustees meeting. "We are moving forward and exploring every option," he said. The stadium would rise about a block or two behind the Liacouras Center.

What in the name of Sonny Hill is this world coming to when you go to a college basketball game and a fight breaks out? Not between the players, mind you. The mascots. On a weekend in which many Americans upheld the Rev. Martin Luther King's spirit of nonviolence, the feathers were flying at McGonigle Hall, where Temple hosted crosstown rival St. Joseph's. The Temple Owl and the St. Joe's Hawk traded punches Sunday on the basketball court in a fistfight that had to be broken up by security guards and cheerleaders.

Temple left a valuable piece of equipment home when it departed from Philadelphia on Friday for yesterday's football game here against East Carolina - tailback Ventres Stevenson. Stevenson, the team's leading rusher with 841 yards this season, was suspended for disciplinary reasons and was not with the Owls in their 31-24 loss to the Pirates yesterday at Ficklen Stadium. Temple coach Jerry Berndt would say nothing more than that Stevenson had been left home for "breaking a team rule.

Unlike Allen Iverson, Temple women's basketball coach Tonya Cardoza loves to talk about practice. "Who starts, who plays, it's all based on practice," Cardoza explained last Saturday after Temple surged from a third-quarter tie to beat Division II Bloomfield in a preseason game at McGonigle Hall. She can now count on help to replace players not getting the job done. The Owls' nongame activities offer more bodies to compete for playing time than a year ago, when an undermanned roster consisted of a bunch of youngsters around lone senior Tyonna Williams, now on the coaching staff as a special assistant to Cardoza.

The time is now for Jaylen Bond, and Bond couldn't be any happier. After sitting out last season after transferring from Texas, the 6-7, 225-junior from Plymouth Whitemarsh is finally ready to play for the Temple.

I learned a lot while watching and now I just want to play. " Bond will get that opportunity at last when the Owls open the 2014-15 season on Nov. 14 at home against American.

Blair Alston didn't know who the "guy in the suit" was who stood at the front of Temple University's Student Pavilion on Friday afternoon. Alston, a junior on the men's track and field team, received an e-mail Friday morning to attend a mandatory student-athlete meeting.

Along with men's indoor and outdoor track, Temple announced that it would eliminate baseball; softball; men's gymnastics; and men's and women's rowing.

Markieff Morris slid his feet carefully around a folding chair. He received a pass inside the arc and focused on the basket. He rose for the shot. Swish. Morris made a few shots and sat on the baseline of a practice court at McGonigle Hall on Wednesday before Temple's first basketball team workout. He and his twin brother, Marcus, were preparing for the NBA season with strength coach Chuck Ellis. The Philadelphia natives and members of the Phoenix Suns usually work out with Ellis in the offseason, a habit they started after they left Kansas.
