Temple @ Cincinnati
Regular Season Records: Temple 16-15; Cincinnati 20-11
What to Know
The Temple Owls and the Cincinnati Bearcats are set to clash at 3 p.m. ET March 10 at Dickies Arena in the second round of the American Athletic Conference Tournament. The Bearcats should still be feeling good after a big win, while Temple will be looking to regain their footing.
Temple was just a bucket short of a victory on Sunday and fell 83-82 to the Tulane Green Wave. A silver lining for Temple was the play of forward Jamille Reynolds, who had 17 points in addition to five blocks and five boards. Reynolds' performance made up for a slower matchup against the UCF Knights last Thursday.
Meanwhile, Cincinnati took their game against the SMU Mustangs on Sunday by a conclusive 97-74 score. Cincinnati got double-digit scores from four players: guard David DeJulius (30), guard Landers Nolley II (24), guard Jeremiah Davenport (12), and guard Mika Adams-Woods (11).
The Owls are expected to lose this next one by 5. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a four-game streak of ATS wins.
Temple's defeat took them down to 16-15 while Cincinnati's victory pulled them up to 20-11. In their victory, the Bearcats relied heavily on David DeJulius, who had 30 points and six assists. Temple will need to find a way to minimize his impact if they want to win.
