Owls are Big East ready

Temple is making a solid case for receiving a Big East Conference invitation.

The Owls improved to 3-2 against power-conference opponents after Saturday’s 73-60 over Atlantic Coast Conference member Maryland.

Their losses were to Purdue (Big Ten) and Texas (Big 12). The Owls beat Villanova (Big East), Duke (ACC) and Maryland.

And the Owls' three victories were for the most part decisive, winning them by an average margin of 9.6 points.
