The first-half Temple defense was simply smothering. It was also record-setting in a hard-to-believe opening 20 minutes. While the offense still is inconsistent, if Temple can maintain the defensive effort it gave in a 55-37 American Athletic Conference win over Tulane on Saturday at the Liacouras Center, then the Owls will make a serious run at an NCAA berth. Tulane's 37 points tied the lowest total this season by a Temple opponent, matching American in a 40-37, season-opening Owls win, and marked the first time since the 1993-94 season that Temple had held two opponents under 40 points.

NEW ORLEANS - The regular-season conference title that Temple clinched Sunday will have more meaning next week if it helps land the ultimate prize - a spot in the NCAA tournament. But for that to happen, the Owls will need more than the 20 wins they reached after a 64-56 victory against Tulane at Devlin Fieldhouse. That much was proven last season. Temple ended the regular season with 22 wins and added a 23rd in the conference tournament. Still, that wasn't good enough for inclusion in the field of 68. "It was disappointing, of course," sophomore forward Obi Enechionyia said after he paced the Owls with 18 points.

Even though Temple earned the No. 1 seed in the American Athletic Conference Tournament, the regular-season finale Sunday at last-place Tulane has plenty of meaning. First, if Temple (19-10, 13-4 AAC) loses to Tulane (10-20, 3-14), it won't look good to the NCAA tournament selection committee. Temple, picked sixth in the preseason AAC poll, is also looking to earn the conference title. The Owls would clinch at least a share of the AAC title with a win. If Temple wins and SMU (25-4, 13-4)

ISSUE | TEMPLE FOOTBALL Give a hoot for Owls We have a top-25 collegiate football team in town: our Temple Owls, 5-0, 23d in ESPN's power rankings, and only getting better. Momentum is building for this team and the football program. As I sat at Saturday's game, cheering on the Owls as they beat Tulane, 49-10, it was obvious that Lincoln Financial Field was more than half empty, though the fans were loud and enthusiastic. Can you imagine if the stadium were full? Let's get behind our team and fill the Linc for the remaining four home games, starting Saturday against the University of Central Florida.

Kip Patton caught the pass and immediately turned upfield. He shrugged off an attempted tackler and turned on the jets before finally being tackled on the Tulane 5-yard line. All told it was a 43-yard completion, showing both the big-play ability and improvement in the 6-foot-4, 241-pound tight end from Norristown High. It was one of the Owls' many highlight plays from a 49-10 win over visiting Tulane on Saturday.

Running is part of P.J. Walker's game, but it hasn't been lately. During Temple's 49-10 win over Tulane at Lincoln Financial Field on Saturday, the junior quarterback took off a few times on designed runs. It's been known that one of Walker's shoulders has been less than 100 percent, and coach Matt Rhule provided more insight after the game. "He separated his shoulder in the Penn State game," Rhule said, not indicating which shoulder it is. "The last couple of games we were afraid to run him. " The doctors said Walker could play, according to Rhule, but that didn't mean it wouldn't hurt after he took hits.

There was a time not too long ago - let's call it two years - when Temple's defense didn't have the pieces necessary to get the job done. The Owls "D" was kind of a bend-and-eventually-break unit, at best. That all changed last season. "Last year, we were in the top 20 [nationally] in, I don't know, 13 categories on defense, which is hard to duplicate," said Temple defensive coordinator Phil Snow. "After the first week [this year] we were way up there. " After the Penn State game.
