Temple Wins the A-10, Heads to the Tournament

This afternoon the Temple Owls won the Atlantic-10 championship, avenging a February 6th loss to Richmond. This was the third consecutive A-10 championship the Owls have brought home to north Philly.

Despite winning the A-10 and leading Div1 teams in road victories, the Owls only managed to earn a 5 seed for the Tournament. The first round finds them facing Cornell (At one point in my life as soon as I heard the name Cornell I thought of the Ivy League, prestige, and academic excellence . . . now my first thought is: Cornell, that’s Andy Bernard’s alma mater.)

While it’s a long shot, it would be amazing to see Temple play Villanova in the Final Four. Philadelphia would be a crazy town on that night.

This year I’m expecting more than one and done from the Owls. The team is better than it has been in years. Hoot! Hoot!
