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.

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.

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.

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.

SOMEDAY, Temple may have an on-campus football stadium. But in the immediate future, the Owls will continue to play their home games at Lincoln Financial Field. Temple and the Eagles have signed an amendment to their agreement that provides the university consecutive one-year options in 2018 and 2019, according to a Temple spokesperson. The current agreement was set to expire in 2017. Temple has expressed interest in building an on-campus facility, something it has never had.

TEMPLE'S CHERRY and White Game got off to a quirky start on Saturday afternoon, as an announcer stood on the field to narrate the Owls' performance through the Rampage, a modern update on the old-school Oklahoma drill, and a kicking competition. Points were awarded for success in those workouts to the Cherry squad, the defense, and the White team, the offense, respectively, in the spectacle. Those points were distributed throughout the game more haphazardly than on "Whose Line Is It Anyway?"

Something just didn't seem right with Temple running back Zaire Williams. He knew it and the Owls coaching staff realized it. Finally, there was a reason for the lack of explosion in his game. Williams, who will be a redshirt sophomore, had a bulging disk in his back last season. He saw limited action in the Owls' opening 37-7 win at Vanderbilt, with 17 yards on seven carries. Then an MRI exam revealed his season-ending injury. Williams said he didn't need surgery but went through strenuous rehabilitation.
