Temple Preview

Third-Ranked Villanova (9-0) heads up to Broad Street to play Temple at the Liacouras Center in the finale of the Big 5 City Series.

The Owls come into the game sporting a 7-2 record with losses to Georgetown and St. John's. They are led by Senior Guard, Ryan Brooks who is averaging 13.6 ppg, but Lavoy Allen, the junior big man, is the threat down low that Temple Coach Fran Dunphy like to run the offense through.

Temple is a very talented defensive team. Villanova will need use JayWright's depth on the bench to keep the tempo high and run the Owls tired.
