RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Oddly, Temple was ranked 30th in nation in defense this season, but finished only 6th in conference play. The AAC is a defensive conference with a few good shooters sprinkled in.

Only three AAC’s teams averaged over 70 ppg.

Three-Man-Weave wrote that Temple had bad shooters and that’s why their offense was so bad and scored such few points per game.

I see it differently.


Temple shot but 40 percent on FG attempts which ranked 332 in the nation, and 9th in conference play. Such shows how dumb it was for both Rose with a 36.8 percent FG percentage and NPL with a 38 shooting percentage to take Temple’s most shots. Both would have shot far better if Mckie had only played a pressure defense far more often than he did. As both would have scored easy hoops by forcing more turnovers.,

Temple had two of the best three point shooters in the conference in A.Moore and Dre Perry. Temple could have shot as well if not better than their opponents if Moore had shot more three’s, Perry had played and shot more, and Scott and Perry, the AAC’s best guard and forward shooting two’s, 54.7 percent and 59 percent respectively in conference play, had only played and shot more.what could have been.

Temple had only it’s fourth losing season since 1976. Such is especially painful as Temple lost but one player, and was coming off a 23-10 winning record.

Regardless of Temple not having success in the NCAA tournament under Fran Dunphy, he was surely missed last season. As Dunphy’s staple was decisively winning the turnovers battle over opponents came to an end.

This past season saw returning players NPL, Moorman, and Hamilton, all see their shooting percentages sharply decline. Should not have happened.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
How good was Alani Moore? He played in all 18 conference games and only shot less than 33 percent on three’s in 4 of those 18-games. He shot 42.9 percent (36-84) on three’s in conference games. Mckie should have created more shots for A.Moore in games he was on.

A.Moore was way more consistent shooting three’s than Shizz Alston was. As in the prior season, Shizz Alston shot under 33 percent on three’s in 11 of the 18 conference games he played in. Alston made 52 of 186 three point attempts.

Alston made but 16 more three’s than A.Moore did, but took 104 more three-point attempts than A.Moore did. Alston took 5.7 more three’s per conference games than A.Moore did.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Temple shot 69.6 percent from the foul line this past season in conference play, down from 73.5 percent the year before.

Temple saw it’s two point shooting percentage decline from 49.8 percent in conference play last season to 43.6 percent this past season.

Also, Temple three-point shooting the prior season was 35.3 percent in conference play, and Temple’s three-point shooting dropped to 33 percent in conference play. But Temple was still the 2nd best three point shooting percentage in the conference.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Temple’s opponents shot more three’s (400-348) or 3 more per conference game than Temple did, even though Temple shot three’s at 33.9 percent compared to opponents only shooting 31 percent on three’s.

Temple should have shot more three’s as it shot it’s three’s at a higher equivalent rate than it shot it’s two’s.

Temple went from averaging 8.3 three’s made per game in prior winning season (2nd best in the conference) to only 6.4 three’s made per conference game (10th in the conference) this past season.

Temple would have not only shot a higher percentage on three’s but scored far more three’s if Perry had played more (34.4 percent on three’s in conference play) and Alani Moore (42.9 percent on three’s in play) had shot more three’s. And if Perry had replaced Moorman, Temple would have had far less three’s shot by Moorman who shot 26.5 percent on three’s in conference play.

HC Mckie saying after Tulsa loss that Temple is not a good three point shooting team was simply false as Temple was the 2nd best in the conference shooting three’s.

When Jake Forrester played, Temple scored fewer points than when Hamilton played. This is because in conference play, Forrester turned the ball over once every 12.5 minutes, and committed a foul once every 6.25 minutes he played. Temple needed a far better performance by it’s starting Center.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Most of Quentin Rose’s fga’s was mid-range 2-point jump shots. Quentin Rose has said that he had a nice mid-range jump shot.

Not so. As according to basketball prognosticator Bart Torvik, Rose shot mid-range two’s poorly his entire four years. .His worse being the last two seasons when he shot the most mid-range two-point jump shots.


As last season, Rose shot 46-171 or 26.9 percent on mid range 2’s

His junior year Rose shot 52-177 or 29.4 percent on mid range 2’s.

His sophomore year, Rose shot 57-145 or 39.3 percent on mid-range 2’s.

His freshman year, Rose shot 31-90 or 34.4 percent on mid-range two’s.

NPL also shot 25 and 26 percent on mid-range 2-point jumpers the past two seasons.

What’s startling is that both Dunphy and McKie allowed this to happen. One can only hope that didn’t know his stats shooting mid-range 2’s.

Very disappointed with HC Mckie’s comment that Jake Forrester had a “solid” last season. Not so. As Forester’s defense was ok, and although he shot well he committed so many needless turnovers and fouls, that Temple was outscored by an average of 16.4 points per 100 possessions last season when Forrester played. Worse than anyone else on the team.

McKie also said he’d like to see Forrester slow down his game and not try to do so much. No mention was made of his high turnover rate nor his excessive fouling.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Temple averaged 1.4 more foul shots per game than it’s opponents because of how often Rose and NPL made trips to the foul-line.

Temple did so even though Temple committed 1.7 fouls more per game than it’s opponents did. This disconnect is probably due to Temple’s offensive players drawing more shooting fouls than their opponents did.

Temple was 5th in the conference in committing the most fouls, primarily because it’s bigs were not being taught that good defense is based on forcing bad shots, and when the defender has accomplished that, they should not be fouling the shooter. But Temple players fouled anyway.

The gold standard for excellence in committing the fewest fouls is the Univerity of Virginia. As Virginia’s HC Bennett teaches defense without committing excessive fouls. One reason conference opponents average less than 60 pgg.

Last season, Virginia.playing the same number conference games as Temple, committed but 277 fouls compared to Temple committing 338 fouls in AAC conference play, or almost 3 less fouls per game than Temple did.

By fouling so little Virginia opponents took but 245 foul shots in conference play. compared to Temple’s opponents taking 347 foul shots in 18 conference games, almost 100 more or approximately 5 more opponent foul shots per conference game than Virginia opponents did.

On page 1 of this thread I have provided a review
Of Temple men’s bb games played during the 2019-2020 season. It’s my view that Temple should have had a strong winning record and not a losing record as Temple did.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Alani Moore is playing professional bb for the Houston Push. They play in a tournament game tonight at 6 pm that can be viewed on ESPN3.

He’s had an a outstanding year having averaged 13.8 ppg, shot 51.7 percent on all fga’s, 40 percent on three’s, and 86 percent at the foul-line.

He shot terrifically on two’s at 80.9 percent (32-44) but did not do so at Temple where he shot but 28.3 percent on two’s (15-53 on two’s). The reason for the large disparity is because as a pro he plays more often in a fast-breaking system that gets him into the open court. That rarely happened when he played for Temple.

His non-shooting stats are equally impressive, as he averaged 5.2 assists per game, 1.5 steals per game, and committed but 1.7 turnovers per game. His offensive rebounds and steals exceeded his turnovers. He averaged but 1.4 fouls per game.

Alani Moore 5.2 assists per game is double what he averaged at Temple (2.6 assists per game). At Temple, Alani Moore, not Rose, should have mostly distributed the ball Rose averaged just 3.6 assists per game.


At Temple, Alani Moore would have had far more assists if he had also played more with Perry and Scott, than with Rose and NPL, who shot poorly.

If Alani Moore would have shot far more than he did at Temple in the 2019-2020 season and played in a more aggressive offensive system, he would have averaged above the 13.8 ppg he did this past professional season, and way more than the 8.4 ppg he averaged over the course of the season at Temple.

Other players at Temple would have scored better with Moore distributing the ball more often.

What we should learn from the above is that sometimes a players poor stats has more to do with coaching, not the players failings. Just takes awhile for that to be apparent.
