Temple men’s basketball coach Fran Dunphy certainly missed 2012-2013 Atlantic 10 Player of the Year Khalif Wyatt this season.
But he admitted last week after watching the Owls struggle defensively throughout a 9-22 season that the players he really missed were starting power forward Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson and backup guard T.J. DiLeo.
Temple found a foreclosure sign on its new home before it ever had a chance to move in.
Again, the Owls were out of the Big East.
Unlike a decade ago, when the program was evicted from the Big East, the Owls split this time because of the alignment shake-up that forced them into the American Athletic Conference. The conference may not be what Temple wanted, but it's still a...

Read the complete transcript of Temple's Saturday afternoon media session leading into Sunday's NCAA Tournament game against Indiana. Coach Fran Dunphy was joined on the dais by seniors Khalif Wyatt, Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson, and T.J. DiLeo.
While Will Cummings has been a starter all season, his production and minutes have greatly varied over the course of his sophomore campaign based on his play and the contributions of others, mostly senior T.J. DiLeo.
But on Saturday, Cummings had the type of impact many hoped he would this year, totaling 15 points and leading the charge on defense with four steals as Temple topped Rhode Island.

TJ DiLeo has directly helped Temple win three games this season and is a big reason why the Owls are 18-5 heading into Saturday's big Atlantic 10 game against Xavier.
The Temple Owls had struggled in stretches this season with one starter sidelined by injuries, but the loss of another was too much to bear as they fell to the Bowling Green State Falcons, 67-64. Temple (3-2) had a three-point lead with under two minutes remaining but couldn’t hold it, losing to Bowling Green (4-2) for the first time in four games between the two schools.
The Temple Owls are in Puerto Rico, taking on Western Michigan tomorrow morning to kick off the 5-Hour ENERGY Puerto Rico Tip-Off. This is the second time that Temple has taken place in the preseason event, going 1-2 in a 2007 appearance, though expectations are much higher this time around.

Temple got big shots from Juan Fernandez and Ramone Moore and the best game of TJ DiLeo's career in a 73-67 overtime win at Penn in Monday's season opener.
Zack Rosen and the Penn Quakers gave the Temple Owls their best shot last night, but ultimately fell short as Temple head coach Fran Dunphy yet again defeated his former team, 73-67. The tightly contested Big 5 matchup, the earliest ever in the long history of the famous city hoops series, needed overtime as Penn threatened to upset Temple in the Owls’ first game of the year.
A fortunate pass, an erroneous call, a typical big shot from Juan Fernandez and an atypical 38-minute Ironman effort from T.J. DiLeo all played parts in Temple’s thrilling 73-67 overtime win over Penn in the Owls’ men’s basketball opener on Monday night.
Listen to comments from Temple players T.J. DiLeo and Juan Fernandez, coach Fran Dunphy, Penn coach Jerome Allen and player Zack Rosen following the Owls' 73-67 win on Monday night.
