Philadelphia-born Dionte Christmas played four years of Temple basketball. In 2006-07, he led the Atlantic 10 in scoring, sinking 20 points a game.

Thanks to his reserve status as a freshman the year before, he was deemed the Most Improved Player in the conference. The next year, he became only the third player to lead the conference in scoring twice in a row. As a senior, the awards poured in - All-American rumors, All-Conference selection, Wooden Award and Lowe's Senior Class buzz, and the first player to lead the Atlantic 10 in scoring for three years.

His Temple career included 2,043 points, only the fourth Owl to ever hit 2,000 points. And today, he tore it all down.
