'Best' and 'Worst' awards from Temple vs. Xavier
My look at some of the best and worst performances and observations from Temple’s 85-72 victory over Xavier on Saturday night at the Liacouras Center:
Player of the game: It would be insane to not give this honor to Ramone Moore. The Temple guard did basically whatever he wanted to do against Xavier. In the end, he made 5 of 8 three-pointers en route to scoring a game-high 30 points. The 6-foot-4 fifth-year senior came two points shy of his career high. This was also the third time that he scored 30 points in his career.
Worst performance of the game: At 7 feet and 275 pounds, Kenny Frease was expected to have a presence. Instead, the Xavier center did his best invisible man impersonation. Frease finished with just two points on 1 for 6 shooting. The senior also finished with one rebound.
