Fran Dunphy didn't want it to be all about him, and in the end it wasn't. Temple and Penn played a terrific basketball game last night, one that reminded you once again just how special the Big Five is, one that left you wondering why the Palestra wasn't sold out.
Some pro athletes are in it for the money and others for the championships. You usually can tell the ones in it for the money. As soon as they get it, they lose a little of their drive, a little of their edge, a little of the competitive spirit that helped them become professional athletes in the first place. They start shrugging after losses and 0 for 4s and saying "Whatever."
