“I kind of like sitting back watching everybody else get real nervous before I’m real nervous,” said the Temple coach, whose squad opens the tourney at 9:55 p.m. on Friday.
The fifth-seeded Owls (24-7) will face the winner of Wednesday’s California vs. South Florida game in a Midwest Regional second-rounder in Nashville, Tenn. It will be the last of the 32 second-round games played during Thursday and Friday.
