The Old Temple One-Two

Temple seems headed to becoming the second Atlantic 10 team to have the conference's top two overall scoring leaders. The Owls were also the first team to do so, five seasons ago.

Ramone Moore (18.8 through Wednesday) has a comfortable lead and would have to stumble badly not to win the scoring crown. Temple's Khalif Wyatt (16.71) is in a battle with Fordham's Chris Gaston (16.70) and Xavier's Tu Holloway (16.61) for second place.

At the very least, Temple should become fifth A10 team to have the scoring leader and another player in the top 5. The previous four:
