By most accounts, life at the top of the Atlantic 10 this year has been just as tough as playing at the top of any conference in America. There could be as many as six or seven teams make the NCAA Tournament out of this conference (at least three are locks, and La Salle and Temple are right there), and a total of 11 will be playing in either the NIT or the NCAA Tournament in all likelihood. That’s impressive, and that’s why it’s surprising that a 22-8 Temple team that has a win over the Syracuse Orange this year is actually legitimately on the bubble. The Owls can fly up and down the court, and they are going to be in for a great matchup in this one against the HAVOC defense of the Rams. VCU comes at you for the full 40 minutes, and it forces over 12 steals per game. Of course, the team isn’t all that great on the road, as it is just 1-7 ATS in situations where it can’t feed off of its hometown crowd. That won’t be a problem in the NCAA Tournament, as the team travels well and has picked up a big time neutral fan base as well. Here in the City of Brotherly Love though, there will be no love for the Rams. The Owls have to have this one, and they have the type of team that can run with VCU. Expect a high scoring thriller to go the way of the bubble dwellers on Sunday afternoon.
