According to kenPom we have to have at least 67 points and Temple has to have at most 64 points, or this one goes in the L column, if we even care to keep track of such things any more.
What happens if we score only 66 and Temple scores 65? Does that mean we actually have to put this one in the L column? But it is an and isn't it. That makes it worse. What if we score 95 and Temple scores 70? Does that mean it is a loss? I always thought losses were when we score less than the other team, but what do I know.
If I was able to give a pre game speech to the players it would be short and sweet and be something like this: Guys you
have worked your tails off to get where your at now. Do NOT let Temple stomp on your achievements. Do NOT let them
out work you. If we out work them we will be fine. Balanced scoring and a 70-65 W
I hope we twist the knife early. The longer we let them hang around, the higher the chance of questionable calls and losing (see: @ UConn). Between Rose and Pierre-Louis, they have guys who can give us issues defensively, but it depends on which Temple team shows up.
