My look at some of the best and worst performances and happenings from Temple’s 71-51 victory over Charlotte Sunday at Halton Arena:
Best performance: Scootie Randall was the easy choice to win this award. The Temple swingman made 3 of 5 three-point attempts to finish with a game-high 18 points. Thirteen came in the decisive first half. The 6-foot-6 recent graduate also finished with six rebounds (five offensive), two assists and a steal in 36 minutes.
Worst performance: This was a tough one, considering Charlotte had a lot of duds. But I gave it to Denzel Ingram. The 49ers’ freshman guard scored six points on 1-for-6 shooting. He missed all four of his three-point attempts. The Chapel Hill, N.C. native had as many turnovers (three) as rebounds (three) and failed to record an assist in 30 minutes.
Best defensive performance: This award goes to Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson. Temple’s undersized power forward finished with game highs of three blocks and three steals to go with eight points, five rebounds and two assists.
