Juan Fernandez and The Temple Owl's Look Strong in March Madness

Jason GillesContributor IMarch 12, 2010

Juan Fernandez and the Temple Owl's picked apart the Bonnies in the first half and continued in the second.  The off screen shots from the Owl's left just enough room to put up some points.  Lavoy Allen looks strong down low, but it's the presence of Michael Eric thats troubling the Bonnies.  Eric who averages just over 6 pts a game had 10 in the first half.  While Eric and Allen stay tall down low, Juan Fernandez is on fire from behind the 3 point line.  Hitting his first 3 of 4 from beyond the arc, Fernandez who destroyed Villanova with 33pts is on route to another great game.  Temple who is the number 1 seed in this years A10 tournament, is playing like it.  This is some of the best basketball I have seen them play, unselfish, and smart.  The extra passes that they commit too are a major factor in their success, being so unselfish opens up better shots than the Bonnies are even seeing.  Lets just say if the Owl's keep playing like this, with so many people contributing on the court they could make a deep run in the NCAA tournament.
