SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico -- One would assume Temple has to face the Dallas Mavericks after listening to Owls coach Fran Dunphy.
“They are a team with very few weaknesses,” Dunphy said of the Purdue Boilermakers, Temple’s Puerto Rico Tip-Off semifinal opponent. “I think they guard you very, very well … It’s going to be a great, great challenge for us.”
The Owls (2-0) advanced to Friday’s 1 p.m. contest with a 69-55 victory over Western Michigan on Thursday. Purdue (3-0) defeated Iona in a 91-90 thriller.
The Boilermakers boast an all-American candidate in Robbie Hummel.
