Owls to face Kent State Nov. 11 in ESPN Marathon

The Temple men's basketball team will host Kent State at 7:00 PM on ESPNU on Tuesday, November 12 in the 2013 ESPN Tip-Off Marathon.

This marks the second straight season that the Owls and Golden Flashes will compete in ESPN's season-opening event. Temple won last year's meeting, 80-66, in Kent, Ohio on November 13.

The Owls return eight players from the 2012-13 squad that went 24-10 and advanced to the third round of the NCAA Tournament. The Owls depart for a 10-day trip to Europe on August 14.
