I am not a big “Senior Night” guy, but if ever five young men deserved to be honored, these five – Dionte Christmas, Semaj Inge, Sergio Olmos and team managers Tyler Deane and Raheem Mapp – clearly do.
Senior Night is a hard night for coaches, the players being honored, as well as their families. With that being said, it is one of those things that all teams must do. So tonight we take this moment to honor those people who have dedicated their lives to our basketball program and to Temple University. Categorically, I am proud of all three senior players as well as the two senior managers. All five of them have done so much for Temple basketball over the past 4 years. It is a great honor for them and we are happy to provide it. It is just a difficult night due to all of the emotions that go along with the event.
So please join us to help honor these fine young men, and to take part in an exciting Atlantic 10/Big 5 rivalry Thursday when we take on Saint Joseph’s.
