When you spend most of your life towering above your peers, the only thing you grow to expect is people looking up to you. Nearly everyone has looked up to Lavoy Allen since the day he decided to pick up a basketball 5 years ago as a freshman at Pennsbury High School. They weren't looking up to him just because he stood more than 6 inches taller than everyone else. They were looking up to him with high expectations on the basketball court. "I think that year had to be the hardest time of my life.

It would take a mathematician to compute the odds against two teams from the same city reaching the Final Eight in National Collegiate Athletic Association basketball. Whatever the odds are, you can be sure they are astronomical. That's a full fourth of the best teams in the country coming from the same place. The odds against Temple and Villanova advancing all the way to the Final Four, of course, would be virtually unthinkable, if it weren't for some past history. By tomorrow - after surprising Villanova upsets Oklahoma and No. 1 Temple humbles Duke - the unthinkable will have occurred.

Temple probably didn't have any business being in the NCAA Tournament in the first place. The Owls start two freshmen on the back line, a sophomore point guard who didn't play the position in high school, two junior anchors who sat out the first season as Proposition 48 casualties. They don't have much depth and lost their only two seniors some 10 weeks ago to injury and academics. Yet, the seventh-seeded Owls (18-12) are in the second round after dumping 10th-seeded Missouri, 75-61, last night in a West Regional opener.

John Chaney was right when he said his Owls didn't deserve to be ranked seventh in the nation before they had played their first game. They probably should have been rated higher. And after last night's impressive 73-59 win over No. 3 Kansas at Allen Field House, they figure to be. As opening statements go, it was quite a mouthful. The Owls seemed to pick up right where they left off last March, when they made a magical run in the NCAA Tournament and reached the Elite Eight.

Junior wide receiver Jalen Fitzpatrick, Temple's leading receiver last season, is starting to make plays for the Owls. After being held without a touchdown in the Owls' first four games, Fitzpatrick has caught a touchdown in each of the Owls' last three. The junior had the best game of his career in the Owls' first win of the season Saturday, a 33-14 victory over Army, catching four passes for a career-high 128. This included a 37-yard touchdown reception on the second drive of the game.

Temple's basketball team will open its Atlantic 10 season on Jan. 12 at Charlotte, one of the three conference teams the Owls play twice. Their conference home opener is Jan. 16 against defending champion Xavier. Temple also plays Saint Joseph's and Fordham twice. The Hawks visit the Liacouras Center on Jan. 26, and host the Owls at the Palestra on March 2. Temple and La Salle meet once, in the March 8 finale at the Gola Arena. The Owls open at Tennessee on Nov. 9 before heading to the eight-team Puerto Rico Tip-Off Classic, where they'll open against Providence.

Temple University has fired former Owls star Paul Palmer as a sideline reporter on its radio broadcast team for Temple football games. Palmer, a Temple Hall of Famer who holds the Owls' rushing record with 4,895 career yards, was in his fourth season in the role. Palmer worked Temple's game at Toledo last week. Although WPHT-AM (1210) carries Owls games live, the university coordinates and produces the radio broadcasts. The details surrounding Palmer's departure were unknown last night.

Temple basketball recruit Belefia Parks has achieved the necessary minimum score of 18 on his American College Test and is eligible to play for the Owls as a freshman. Parks, a 5-10 guard from Chicago's Simeon Vocational High School, averaged 20 points, 7 assists and 6 rebounds last season and was an all-city selection. He is expected to provide at least backup help for junior Vic Carstarphen at the point position this season. Parks, who signed a national letter of intent with the Owls in May, is described as a "streetwise, heady-type" player by Taylor Bell, who covered him for the Chicago Sun-Times.

KRISTEN McCARTHY had 11 points and 12 rebounds, Shey Peddy scored 13 and BJ Williams had 11 points and six assists, but Temple (2-2) dropped a 58-52 decision at Northern Illinois (2-1) yesterday. The Owls shot 34 percent from the field (3-for-15 threes), 65 percent from the free-throw line, and were outrebounded, 39-30. Temple heads to the Bahamas for the Junkanoo Jam Tournament over the Thanksgiving weekend, opening with sixth-ranked Texas A&M on Friday.

STATWISE, IT was the greatest day Adam DiMichele ever had. The former Temple quarterback, now the Owls' wide receivers coach, helped sign up 225 people for the "Be the Match" bone marrow registry yesterday. The program, operated by the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP), helps find matches for those in need. According to the NMDP website, a person is diagnosed with a blood cancer every 4 minutes. And, every 10 minutes, someone dies from a blood cancer. Each year, thousands with blood cancers such as leukemia and lymphoma are cured.

IN A PERFECT WORLD, a football coach would never have to bring in any junior-college transfers. If only for continuity's sake, he would recruit nothing but 20-some high-school seniors each year and his depth chart would remain steady across the board. But in the real world, it doesn't always work out that way. Sometimes a team has areas that need to be addressed immediately. Last season, Temple lost 10 games. The Owls might have won at least a few of those if they had more playmakers in the secondary, particularly at the safety position.

ALMOST. That's the key word junior guard Will Cummings used to describe Temple's 9-22 season, its first in the new American Athletic Conference. The Owls led in the second half of their first 15 games and won five of them. "That was kind of what happened," Cummings, the team's second-leading scorer at 16.8 points a game, said yesterday. "It's motivation, that you were on the team that kind of let everybody down, didn't live up to the expectations everybody's used to seeing.

TEMPLE'S FOOTBALL team is practicing 15 times this spring. None can be at the program's 10th and Diamond facility because Chudoff Field is being resurfaced. Which means Matt Rhule's guys are hitting the road. The Owls will have 10 scheduled workouts at Camden High's Farnham Park, one (Alumni Day) at Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church (site of the old Temple Stadium), one at Haddon Township's Paul VI High, one at Plymouth Whitemarsh High and another on campus at Geasey Field, which used to be their practice site.

IN A RECENT CHAPTER of Philadelphia's esteemed Book of Basketball, a deep and dangerous team put together a wonderful season that ended against an opponent that was just a little bit better. The Philly team was stacked with undergraduate talent; in fact, it lost only one significant player to graduation. So the team expected - and was expected - to have another outstanding season; but that did not happen for La Salle. Not far away, a senior-laden team made a late-season run and finally performed to its capacity.

Anthony Lee has decided to transfer from Temple. The redshirt junior center informed Owls coach Fran Dunphy of his decision on Monday. Dunphy will grant the 6-foot-9, 230-pounder his release. "I met with Anthony Lee and he has expressed an intent to pursue his option to utilize the NCAA graduate student exception rule and transfer to another school," Dunphy said. "Anthony has been a fine member of the Temple basketball family over his four years here and we will support any decisions he feels are in his and his family's best interests.

Already holding a Temple scholarship offer, Frankford's Shareef Miller saw what it was like to wear an Owls football jersey on Saturday afternoon. The highly recruited junior defensive end is one of Temple's local targets and was a key part of the Owls' junior day. The event featured some of the area's top junior football players, and Temple coaches gave them a tour of both Lincoln Financial Field and the North Broad Street Campus. Temple was Miller's first offer when the Owls came calling in December.

MEMPHIS - It's a tough thing to say, when your streak of six straight 20-win seasons evaporates into the 9-22 thunderstorm Fran Dunphy and his Temple Owls just rode through. The one that ended with an excruciating 94-90, double-overtime loss to Central Florida in Wednesday's opening round of the American Athletic Conference tournament. But despite a long list of to-do's, starting with his team's defense, Dunphy insists he likes the road his young team is on. "Their attitude through a challenging and trying season was very good," Dunphy said after Temple's second OT loss in FedEx Forum in a month (the other an 82-79 loss to host Memphis)

MEMPHIS - Temple stretched the game into double overtime, but the Owls ran into too much Isaiah Sykes on Wednesday night. Sykes scored a career-high 36 points as Central Florida earned a 94-90 victory in the American Athletic Conference tournament at the FedEx Forum. Quenton DeCosey scored 28 points and Will Cummings 25 for Temple, which finished 9-22. Anthony Lee had 17 points and seven rebounds. Early in the second half, Sykes drove for a layup and a three-point play that gave UCF (13-17)

MEMPHIS - Lose 22 of 31 games and the numbers are going to be difficult no matter where you look. Record against ranked opponents: 1-8. Points allowed: 77.6, ranked 324th of 345 eligible teams. Field goal defense: 47.5, also 324 of 345. The curtain had just been drawn on Temple's 9-22 season when coach Fran Dunphy reiterated his No. 1 priority going into next year. "[Defense] is the one thing that I think we need to spend so much time on in the offseason and get to better spots," Dunphy said.
