Owls remain in Top 25

Temple’s setback to St. Joseph’s was costly. But it wasn't as costly as some probably expected.

The Owls (22-6) dropped to 23rd in the Associated Press and to 25th in the ESPN/USA Today coaches polls, released Monday. Temple was ranked 22d in both polls before Saturday’s 82-72 setback to St. Joe’s at Hagan Arena.

The Owls’ next game is against Massachusetts at the Liacouras Center on Wednesday.
