TEAMS:
On Thursday afternoon, the 9th-seeded Temple Owls basketball squad engaged in a down-to-the-wire battle with the 8th-seeded North Carolina State Wolfpack. The Owls ultimately came out on top, winning by a score of 76-72, but if this guy’s antics during the game were any indication, perhaps no Temple Owls fan in attendance at University of Dayton Arena in Dayton, Ohio was more thrilled — or at least demonstrative, rabid and let’s be honest, a bit “touched” — then the Owls fan featured in the latest GIF provided by GIFULMINATION. Proceed if you so choose, but be forewarned, he may frighten you with his in-your-face intensity. Ready? Good. GAH! Now that’s some unbridled — even slightly unhinged — enthusiasm right there. It wouldn’t be surprising if the guy suffered an aneurysm during the nail-biting conclusion. Can you imagine, if Temple can continue on deeper into the tournament, what it will be like for him as the game get progressively more intense themselves? Hoo boy. And finally...

Wyatt, Temple dispatch NC State

Khalif Wyatt grabbed his left thumb -- the one alarmingly wrapped in black support tape -- pulled it toward his stomach and grimaced. His non-shooting hand dangled uselessly as he set up behind the free-throw line. He carefully placed it on the bottom of the ball, cautiously dribbled a couple times, then put both hands on it and let it fly. Painful, but perfect. Then, he did it...

Temple facing Indiana team with few weaknesses

Temple coach Fran Dunphy can't find any weaknesses in Indiana. He'd better hope his players can. The Owls face a daunting task Sunday when they face the top-seeded Hoosiers in the NCAA tournament, with the winner advancing to the round of 16. With an abundance of size, speed and depth, Indiana is a nightmare matchup for any team, and Dunphy is concerned the Big Ten power...

Temple takes 1-and-done reputation vs NC State

Temple wants to shed its one-and-done reputation in the NCAA tournament. The ninth-seeded Owls (23-9) are in the tournament for the sixth straight season. In four of the last five, they were knocked out in their first game, including a 58-54 loss to South Florida last year when they had a No. 5 seed.

Back Again

Khalif Wyatt knows the record. So does Fran Dunphy. The Temple men’s basketball team is 1-6 in the NCAA Tournament the last six years, the only win coming two seasons ago when Juan Fernandez beat Penn State with a last-second shot.
