Owls' Lee optimistic he'll play vs. N.C. State


Temple forward Anthony Lee said he was optimistic about his ability to play in Friday’s first-round game against North Carolina State.

Lee has been bothered by concussion-like symptoms since taking an elbow to the head against Massachusetts on March 15. He practiced Wednesday and will do so again Thursday.

“I’ve just been taking the medicine that the doctors have given me, and that’s definitely helped out a lot,” said Lee, a sophomore. “The pain has gone away, so I do feel pretty good.”

North Carolina State has a strong athletic front line, led by C.J. Leslie and Richard Howell, so Lee’s presence will help.

“We're planning on Anthony playing,” Temple coach Fran Dunphy said. “How much, I don't know. He hasn't played. He hasn't run that much over the last week. So there's a question there.”
