Game 30: Temple vs. Xavier

The Owls' biggest game of the season.

Game 30: Temple vs. Xavier


You can make a case that this is the biggest game in Fran Dunphy's three-year tenure on North Broad Street.

Yes, the Tennessee win was big, and beating St. Joe's in last year's Atlantic 10 Tournament final was the breakthrough that put the program against the national stage.

But the Owls never had to play Xavier last year, and the Musketeers have not won the conference tournament during their three-year reign as the Atlantic 10's powerhouse.

If Temple loses, their NCAA Tournament dreams are toast. It's a pretty big mountain to climb; can the Owls do it?
