Owls Surf Thru Green Wave

The Temple Owls (3-3) ventured into the Big Easy to face the Tulane Green Wave (6-4) on Saturday afternoon. Tulane was 6-1 at Fogelman Arena so, it seemed Temple would have an uphill battle. The Temple Owls were able to surf the Green Wave to a 65-57, victory.

Once again, the boys from North Philly put up a big second half  to stake a claim for a win. After a back and forth first half that revealed a 28-26 Owls lead, Temple went on a 13-3 surge to effectively take control of this one.
