Owls start O'Brien in place of Hollis-Jefferson

WASHINGTON  -- Jake O'Brien made his first start at Temple Wednesday night at George Washington.

The 6-foot-9 stretch forward Boston College transfer started in place of Owls power forward Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson.  Hollis-Jefferson is a little nicked up and has been struggling from the field. This is the second consecutive game that Temple altered its starting lineup. Freshman swingman Quenton DeCosey started Saturday against St. Louis in place of Scootie Randall.
