My look at some of the best and worst performances and happenings from St. Bonaventure’s 81-78 victory over Temple on Saturday at the Liacouras Center:
Best performance: Once again, this was a tough one, because Khalif Wyatt produced another high-scoring performance. Yet, I had to give this to Matthew Wright. The St. Bonaventure junior guard torched the Owls for a career-high 22 points on 8-for-11 shooting. He went 4-for-4 on three-pointers. The Toronto native set the tempo early, making his first five field-goal attempts. Wright also finished with three assists and two rebounds in 37 minutes.
Worst performance: This has to go to Temple’s Will Cummings. The sophomore point guard missed all three of his field-goal attempts en route to being held scoreless. The Florida native also had more fouls (four) than rebounds (one) and assists (one) combined. Let’s just say that this is a game Cummings wants to forget.
Best defensive performance: Anthony Lee gets this award. The Temple post player blocked two shots to go with a steal. The Maryland native also finished with six points and nine rebounds – seven on the defensive end – in 24 minutes.
