It's Temple

By mrasor Published: March 12, 2006

Men's basketball


Akron will play at Temple Tuesday in the NIT's first round.


Not only did the Zips not get a bye, but they also didn't get a home game in the play-in round. Click here for the bracket.


The Owls (17-14) were just average in the Atlantic 10 this season. However, they beat No. 8 George Washington on Thursday. They also beat Maryland, Alabama and played Duke close.


Temple has plenty of size. Each starter is above 6-foot-5. Center Wayne Marshall is 6-11. As Buchtelite editor in chief Dan Kadar suggested to me, maybe the Zips should run with a lineup of Dru Joyce, Darryl Peterson, Romeo Travis, Rob Preston and Matt Futch.
