Very little has come easy for Temple this season, but through all the struggles has come a reward - the No. 1 seed in the American Athletic Conference tournament.

Temple's Tonya Cardoza gave her basketball team off from practice on Friday and nobody was complaining, including the coach. The Owls put in plenty of extra time Thursday night before losing an epic five-overtime, 100-97 classic in an American Athletic Conference game at Memphis. It tied Drexel's 98-90 win over Northeastern in 2007 as the longest in NCAA Division I women's basketball history. The 197 points were the most in Temple program history "I am exhausted," Cardoza said Friday.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Memphis point guard Ricky Tarrant Jr. literally took a shot to the mouth, and bounced back to deliver the knockout free throws as the Tigers rallied past Temple, 67-65, in an American Athletic Conference game Wednesday night before 12,247 at FedEx Forum. The Owls, who had built an 11-point lead five minutes into the second half and saw it slip away thanks to Tiger pressure and some suddenly suspect ballhandling, looked to have forced overtime with two seconds left as Josh Brown stole the ball off a rebound and put it home to tie the game at 65 for the Owls (8-7, 3-2)

OK, CALL IT far-fetched, but after his death on Thursday, Ed Devlin may have made it known how happy he was with the Eagles' victory over New England three days later. After Ed died, a Catholic priest who went to his bedside, told the family to expect a sign from Ed letting them know everything was all right. "While we were watching the Eagles game on Sunday, I suddenly knew what the sign was," said his brother, Terry. "It was the Eagles beating the Patriots!" Whatever, Ed certainly would have been thrilled by the unexpected victory.

FOR ALL it has done in the first 11 games, Temple hasn't won anything yet. The Owls are 9-2. The only time they had 10 victories in a season was 36 years ago. Still, the reality is this: If they lose Saturday night to Connecticut in South Philly and don't get into the first American Conference title game, then lose whatever non-New Year's bowl they'd go to, they'd finish 9-4, having dropped four of their last six. So how "successful" would that...

Limiting a team that was averaging 43.7 points to four measly field goals, Temple defeated Memphis, 31-12, in Saturday's must-win American Athletic Conference game before 31,708 fans at Lincoln Financial Field. Temple (9-2, 6-1 AAC)

Temple hopes to fix the leaks on its defense when the Owls host Memphis in Saturday's noon American Athletic Conference game at Lincoln Financial Field. The Owls face a team that averages more points per game than the 42.0 average Temple has allowed in its last two games. Temple (8-2, 5-1 AAC) can clinch the AAC East Division with wins over Memphis and then Connecticut in its season finale, regardless of any other outcome. The Owls can also clinch with one win and a South Florida loss vs. Cincinnati on Friday night.
