Giants27Analyst IMarch 15, 2009

The Temple Owls advanced to the NCAA Tournament for the second year in a row.

Dionte Christmas led his Owls with 29 points as the Owls became the first A-10 team, to win two straight conference titles in eight years.

Duquesne ranked seventh in the Atlantic Ten, pulled off a shocker Friday night, as they took down Dayton who still may get an at-large bid.

Aaron Jackson, who is the last member of the Dukes who was shot in 2006 during an on-campus incident, led the Dukes with 20 points.
