Owls game could get ugly

Temple's matchup against Fordham on Wednesday night at the Liacouras Center could get U-G-L-Y!

 The Owls (15-5, 4-2 Atlantic Ten) are playing their best basketball of the season.  While improved, the Rams (9-11, 2-5) remain one of the conference's worst programs. And that's why Temple is a 17-point favorite.

 The Owls have won four straight and 24 of the last 28 series meetings.

 

 TEMPLE (15-5, 4-2 A-10)
