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)
32 Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson F  6-6 Jr. 9.1 ppg. 6.4 rpg.
3 Anthony Lee F 6-9 Fr. 6 ppg. 6.6 rpg.
4 Juan Fernandez G 6-4 Sr. 11.8 ppg. 2.8 apg.
1 Khalif Wyatt G 6-4 Jr. 16 ppg. 2.2 spg.
10 Ramon Moore G 6-4 Sr. 17.4 ppg. 3.1 apg.


 Fordham (9-11, 2-5)
33 Chris Gaston F 6-7 Jr. 15.7 ppg. 10.3 rpg.
55 Kevin Bristol F 6-10 Sr. 4.5 ppg. 7.5 rpg
