Temple Gets Pushed Out Of The Tournament

TempleOwlsloseThere’s no question that it was a push off by Iowa center Adam Woodbury, but it wasn’t called.  Temple forward Obi Enechionyia was positioned inside of Woodbury, but the Hawkeyes 7-foot center extended his arms in a push just after his teammate and little point guard Mike Gesell had thrown up an air ball from the corner.

Woodbury jumped in the air, got his hands on the basketball while in the air and tapped it in for the victory, 72-70.  Clearly the foul should have been called, but that does Temple no good, as they were knocked out of the tournament in their first game.

Sunday could have been a Philadelphia day in the Tournament with Temple playing Villanova, but Iowa didn’t allow it despite a valiant effort by the Owls.

It was a painful way for the Owls to be sent home, but that’s part of the beauty and agony of the NCAA tournament.  You can’t afford to have an off night or you can’t get pushed out of the way on the last possession of your first game. Fran Dunphy’s squad had played well in pushing Iowa to overtime.

They battled back from a double-digit deficit to send the game into the extra-session.

Quentin DeCosey led Temple in scoring with 26 points.  Josh Brown added 16 and Jaylen Bond was very effective on the boards with 14  points and 15 rebounds.

  1. 76ers lose at Home by 15 Pts to the Charlotte Hornets who were Playing their 4th Game Ina Row on the Road.. Just brutal… Check the 76er Guards +/- and it’s terrible every game.. ish Smith, Canaan, Covington are a -15 to – 20 almost every Game..
    Throw in Defensive Liabilities in Stauskus & Marshall onthe perimeter and the 76ers cannot Defend the Ball with any of their Guards and until this changes, the 76ers are going absolutely nowhere ..
    This upcoming Draft must be about improving their Guard Play at PG & SG and especially when it comes to playing good Defense out on the perimeter ..

    • On top of that Paulman the bad guard play causes stress on the C’s and PF’s causing them to have to constantly rotate to help the guards so guess who gets open.

      • If you can’t stop Ball Penetration hike defending, then your Defense is Toast
        If Guards can’t facilitate ball & player movement with good spacing when running an Offense then your Offense becomes stagnant, predictable and inefficient..

        • If you expected this team to compete with any team without Noel and Okafor, then you are crazy.

          They don’t have any talent at guard. None. All of these guys are bench players or dudes off of the scrap heap. None of this is shocking.

          • The 76ers were not competing with Noel/Okafor Playing either …
            This Franchise is a far,far ways off to ever getting back to .500 Let alone Playoff Contention….

            Orlando,Washington,Atlanta, Miami, Boston,Charlotte, Detroit, Milwaukee Toronto,Indy,Cleveland, and the Knicks are years ahead of these Bums
            The 76ers and the Brookyln Nets will be the bottom feeders for the next couple of the Seasons in the East..
