Temple Owls

2012-13: 24-10 (9-7 Atlantic 10)
In-conference offense: 1.08 points per possession (3rd in A-10)
In-conference defense: 1.03 points allowed per possession (8th in A-10)

At Temple, 20-win seasons are something of a given. In fact, the Owls have topped the 20-mark for six straight years after going 12-18 in Fran Dunphy's first campaign. But that streak is in serious jeopardy this season with a squad light on experience and scoring punch.
