East Carolina is a nonfactor this season (most seasons really). The only shot they have is to somehow get hot in the league tourney and steal the automatic bid.
Temple is an interesting case because they have some really good wins and some maddening losses. Even though they are pretty good those losses probably mean they would have to win out to make it in too.
East Carolina Pirates
The Pirates are second from the bottom in the AAC. They won their last game over Memphis in OT. In fact their last two have gone there so there could be an emotional letdown in this spot.
The program is not completely bereft of talent though. Freshman Shawn Williams scored 40 against Memphis so perhaps they can build around him.
Wing Kentrell Barkley has also been a productive player. He has had back to back double-doubles and leads the team in rebounds. Not the highest ceiling but consistent.
Isaac Fleming is a transfer from Hawaii with a low profile but he just had a triple double. He has proven to have a steady hand operating the offense. This team can be better than it is has shown so far.
Temple has won three in a row including an overtime victory over Wichita State. They have five wins in their last six too so things are coming together for the Owls.
Quinton Rose is a super skinny wing who leads the team in scoring. He is more of a scorer than a shooter on a team that is desperate to find points and thus afford his inefficiency.
The same goes for Shizz Alston who has not built on what was a breakthrough sophomore campaign. He had a double-double in the last game at Tulane but with this group he can’t take a night off.
It looks like Obi Enechionyia is going to close his career at Temple the same way he has played for four years, leaving you wondering what it would take to get him more fully engaged. There is talent there but it does not come out regularly.

This game is not going to be on the radar of most of the nation on Wednesday night but it could be an opportunity.
Temple is definitely the bigger brand and has bigger victories so there is a really good chance they are overvalued.
