Temple Owls do 'Harlem Shake'

The Temple Owls have joined in the “Harlem Shake” craze.

With Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson wearing a horse head,  T.J. DiLeo dressed like someone from a land of broke-down strawberry shortcakes, and Will Cummings as a pig, the Owls’ version of the dance craze was filmed in their locker room.

The Harlem Shake, which is getting national attention, is to the song that bears the same name. There are countless videos on the internet where one person begins dancing. Moments later, the camera cuts to large group of people, mostly donning costumes, dancing.

In addition to the video, the Owls (23-8) are getting attention for turning the season around with seven consecutive victories.

Temple defeated 21st-ranked Virginia Commonwealth on Sunday to all but clinch its sixth consecutive NCAA tournament appearance. It also gave the Owls the third seed and first-round bye in this week’s Atlantic Ten Conference tourney at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
