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.
