ST. LOUIS -- My look at some of the best and worst performances from Temple’s 72-67 victory over St. Louis on Wednesday night:
Best player of the game: Temple guard Khalif Wyatt could have easily won this award. However, Ramone Moore gets it for another one of his late-game heroics. The Owls shooting guard scored seven of Temple's final 12 points in the closing 3 minutes, 15 seconds. The fifth-year senior also had a key assist to Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson during that stretch. Moore finished with 18 points and seven rebounds.
Best performance in the low post: Though he’s listed as a small forward, St. Louis' Dwayne Evans was a beast in the low post. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound sophomore shot 6-for-10 from the field to finish with 14 points. He also had a team-high eight rebounds and two blocked shots.
Best defensive performance: How can you not give it Wyatt? In addition to his game-high 22 points, the 6-4 junior had a team-high three steals to go with two blocked shots.
Worst performance of the game: I really hate to do this to Juan Fernandez. But the Owls senior point guard really, really, really struggled. He scored a season-low 2 points on 1-for-8 shooting. He also missed his lone foul-shot attempt, while finishing with four assists and two turnovers.
