In a comment to my Temple prediction, 2theLion noted that I was off-base in impugning Temple’s offense. Her comment was valid, because I had asserted that the Owls “…[have not] had much luck scoring points on offense lately…” As 2theLion pointed out, they have indeed scored 75 points in the past three games. However, a closer look reveals that the number of points scored by the Owls is misleading.
So, I’ll break down Temple’s schedule thus far, letting you know at what point in the game they scored their first points and what the opposition’s lead was at that time. ?????? ????? My implication is that on most occasions when Temple scored it was essentially “garbage time” after their opponents had jumped out to big leads.
