Temple was expected to be an NCAA Tournament team when this season began. It still can but it has to turn things around rather quickly.
The Owls have lost five in a row, a streak that started when they went to Georgia and got whacked by the Bulldogs.
Then they lost at home against Tulane, at Houston by three, against Cincinnati by two and then got smothered by Central Florida’s defense over the weekend in an ugly 60–39 loss.
Sophomore Quinton Rose is the team’s leadings scorer at about 14 points per game, including nearly 40 percent from three-point range.
But Rose has scored just four points in his last two games, combined. He wasn’t in foul trouble in either game, he just missed a lot. He also turned it over six times in those two games.
SMU comes into this home game having lost back-to-back conference games on the road — its first two conference losses and first two games on the road. The ‘Stangs are 2–0 at home and 0–2 on the road.
They lost big to Cincinnati over the weekend and really must be looking at this game as a chance to get their mojo back.
Junior Shake Milton has shot well over 40 percent from three in his career at SMU and he’s doing it again this season, though not as efficiently as the previous two seasons.
His scoring efficiency is down this year, but he’s scoring in greater volume. Milton has played 38 minutes in each of SMU’s last two games.

This game should be right around the number. I guess I lean Temple because of the desperation spot, but this is a game I would encourage you to just stay away from.
