We have already seen Head Coach Fran Dunphy’s team go up against a Top 5 team on a neutral court, as the Owls were trumped by the Duke Blue Devils by 23 points in East Rutherford, NJ. Now, the team has to go to the Garden to take on the Cuse, who are still spotless this year at 10-0. We do give the Owls credit for getting out of the blocks in good shape, but the play of F Scootie Randall and G Khalif Wyatt can only go so far. Temple is an undersized team that is only outrebounding teams by 1.8 boards per game thus far this year, something that is sure to get worse, not better as the A-10 season approaches. Syracuse meanwhile, is +14.0 on the glass per game, and F Rakeem Christmas very well could be in for a huge day as a post defender. The Orange were tested earlier this week against the Detroit Titans, but they did crush the Canisius Golden Griffins and seven other teams prior to that. Look for this to be another comfortable victory for the Cuse.
