what to know

Temple will be in front of their home fans on Sunday, but a look at the spread shows they may need home-court advantage. They and the Charlotte 49ers will face off in an American Athletic Battle at 2:00 pm at the Liacouras Center. Temple has now lost eight in a row, and the team is hunting for their first win since January 7.

Last Thursday, the Owls came up short against the Tigers and fell 84-77. Unfortunately the loss continues Temple’s disappointing run against the Tigers: they have now lost six in a row.

Despite their loss, Temple saw several players rise to the challenge and make significant plays. Shane Dezoni, who dropped a double-double at 15 points and ten rebounds, was perhaps the best of them all. Dezoni didn’t help Temple’s cause all that much against the Green Wave on Sunday but the same can’t be said for this matchup. Jahlil White was another key contributor, scoring 20 points with eight rebounds.

Meanwhile, Charlotte unfortunately saw their eight-game winning streak come to an end on Tuesday. They fell short to the Bulls by a score of 72-69. The loss came despite Charlotte being up 17 in the first half.

Charlotte’s loss shouldn’t overshadow the performances of Igor Milicic Jr., who nearly dropped a double-double at 15 points and nine rebounds, and Deshaun Jackson, who scored 16 points with seven rebounds. Milicic Jr. has been hot lately, posting two or more blocks the last three times he’s played.

The Owls have struggled recently as they have lost nine of their last ten games, significantly dropping their record to 8-15 this season. As for the 49ers, their loss ended a three-game winning streak and dropped them to 14-8.

Sunday’s matchup is shaping up to be a scrappy matchup: Temple has been crushing the glass this season, averaging 37.4 rebounds per game. It’s a different story for Charlotte, though, as they’re averaging just 33 rebounds per game. Given Temple’s big advantage in that area, the 49ers will need to find a way to close that gap.
