My look at some of the best and worst performances and happenings from Temple’s 64-54 Atlantic Ten victory over St. Louis on Saturday at the Liacouras Center:
Best performance: This has to go to Temple’s Anthony Lee. Sure, Khalif Wyatt finished with a game-high 24 points. But Lee, a redshirt sophomore post player, was a beast on the block, finishing with 20 points, 10 rebounds, two blocks and steal in 33 minutes. His foul shots with 30 seconds left gave the Owls an eight-point cushion.
Worst performance: It was hard to tell that Mike McCall Jr. came into Saturday’s contest as St. Louis’ leading scoring. The junior guard struggled, making just 1 of 9 shot attempts – including 0-for-4 on three-pointers – en route to being held to a season-low six points.
Best defensive performance: How can you not give this award to Wyatt? The Temple guard showed that he’s much more than just a scorer. Wyatt finished with a season-best and game-high three steals and a season-best two blocks in the victory.
