RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Once again, NPL was Temple’s best defender as he led Temple to it’s best defensive effort in spite of their losing record.

And while his decline in scoring from 13.3 points to 10.9 ppg from last season, and decline from 14.3 ppg to 10.1 ppg in conference play, contributed to Temple’s losing season, his rebounding this past season was off the chart, as he increased his total rebounds from 5.8 per game the year before to an outstanding 8.5 rebounds per game this season.

Not often that a 6’3” guard finishes ranked 87th in the nation in total rebounds as he did, while at the same time guarding the opponents team best scorer on the perimeter. Bravo Nate!

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
I’ve been very hard on Rose even though he averaged 16 ppg, as his shooting percentages were awful. But that was slightly mollified by his getting to the foul-line a lot, and making his foul shots. Even his turnover rate, was more than offset by his steals and offensive rebounds.

Rose taking and missing so many shots cost Temple from averaging even 68 points per conference game. Rose kept other Temple players from getting into a rhythm as they didn’t shoot as often as they should have, and is part of the reason most other players shooting percentages declined.

Regardless of Rose averaging Temple’s most points per game, Rose hurt Temple as other players didn’t shoot as well playing with Rose, and causing Temple not to score as many points as it should have.

Here’s the points Temple scored and gave up per 100 possessions in his four years in l
conference play.

Rose:
Freshman-offensive rating 97.3, Defensive rating 98.5
Sophomore-offensive rating 97.9, defensive rating 105
Junior-offensive rating 97.5 defensive rating 101.5
Senior-offensive rating 96.1, defensive rating 97.5

What the above shows that Rose merely scoring points doesn’t help your team when you’re shooting a lot and missing many shots, and when better shooters seldom shoot the ball.

Last season, when Alston played his offensive rating was 112.7, and his defensive rating was 105.7. This is an indication that Alston’s offensive rating was high because he both shot well and was an efficient scorer, and that he helped other players shoot well when he played.
It also shows Alston’s offensive rating would have been even higher but for Rose dragging his rating down.

A player like Perry this season helped Temple do well as Perry was efficient shooting the ball, as offensive rating was 109 and defensive rating 97.8.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Really hard to predict how Temple will do next season till roster is complete. Even then we’ll
have no idea who HC intends to play in various positions.

Only sure bet is that Nate will start, and since he did not shoot well last season, such will require surrounding him with at least three good shooters. Temple’s Team Captain JP Moorman Will likely to start even though he did not shoot well last season, Temple may once again average in the mid-60’s as they did last season.

But Moorman can greatly improve his shooting if he’ll just take his time, not rush, and pick up to hoop with his eyes early on, and not late.

That would likely change if Perry started in place of Moorman, but thatcnot likely to happen, as it’s more likely that Perry and Scott will be competing for playing SF.

At PG, Strickland is likely to start, but that might change if Temple signs JUCO transfer Silver, a SG , if he’s converted to playing the PG position. He’s an excellent shooter. Although Strickland is a good three-point shooter, he’s not a good 2-point shooter, and has a high turnover rate, which is not a quality Temple wants in it’s starting PG.

Believe McKie learned from last season that JPL has no PG skills.Although JPL shot well last season taking few shots, i don’t see him as a scorer if he shoots more. He’s a very poor foul shooter which reduces his effectiveness driving to the hoop. Unless he’s vastly improved, his high turnover and personal fouls should limit his playing time.

D.Dunn is most likely having the biggest impact this year, with Quincy A, somewhat less, although he should help. Do want to see Dunn subbing in for Nate at times. Good shooter, defender and rebounder.

While Forrester will likely start, will be interesting to see if Nick Jourdain can challenge him for some playing time. But Moorman or Perry will play the Center position as well.

With the players we know are returning, do see Temple’s best line-up as being a small one, with Scott, Nate, Perry, D.Dunn, and Moorman, being on the court. Most other line-ups will have trouble scoring due to turnover and lower shooting percentages.

Do think Scott could be a terrific PG and McKie has considered that st Times last season.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
It’s puzzling why HC McKie seemingly wants to sign as Temple’s final signed another backcourt player when he will have 7-backcourt players-Nate, Strickland, JPL, Scott, D.Dunn, and freshmen Quincy A, and J.White, on Temple’s roster next season.

Especially since Temple’s front court will be shorter and only have only five front court players-Forrester, freshman Nick Jourdain, Moorman, Perry, and Parks returning.

One would think he’d want to replace either D.Moore or Hamilton.

It could be as simply that no decent big is currently available or McKie lacks confidence in his backcourt, particularly who will be Temple’s starting PG. If a guard is signed, we’ll know more.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Nate Pierre-Louis has sent out a tweet saying he intends to enter the NBA draft,,and if not drafted will retain his NCAA eligibility. He does not directly say he will return to Temple. On the other hand, he talked to freshman recruit Quincy A., telling him how he looked forward to-playing with him.

If he leaves, this may be why McKie is seeking multiple other guard recruits.

Don’t think he’ll be drafted but possibility exists he may be offered a G-league contract at some point in time if he decides not to return to Temple or transfers. Believe he graduates this this year and is eligible to transfer as a graduate transfer.

In his three-years at Temple, he’s had quite a career. He burst on the scene in conference platy his freshman year, when he averaged 20.4 mpg, averaged 9.9 ppg, , shot 56.3 percent on two’s, 34.9 percent shooting three’s, but only 60 percent at the foul-line.

His sophomore year, he had another good year in conference play averaging 34.1 mpg, averaging 14.3 ppg, shooting 50.4 percent on two’s, 34.7 percent on three’s, and upped his foul-shooting to 69.1 percent.

This past season his playing time remained at 34.1 mpg in conference play, averaged but 10.1, his two-point shooting dropped to 40.7 percent, his three-point shooting declined to 31.4 percent, and he upped his foul-shooting to 75 percent.

I attribute his decline this past season as not do to his eye injury, but rather Temple not running an effective offense. He was Temple’s best defender this season.

Do suspect that if he doesn’t return to Temple that will open playing time for his brother Josh.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
With Nate entering the NBA draft, and simultaneously keeping his NCAA eligibility alive, an unanswered question is whether he told HC McKie he’s staying or transferring if he withdraws from the NBA draft?

If he told McKie if he withdraws from the draft, he’s coming back, we won’t know if Nate’s staying in the draft or not till June 15th which is the last day for him to withdraw from the draft.

But given the virus, it may well be that the NBA draft now scheduled for June 25th, may be pushed forward, and if so, the date to withdraw from the draft will be pushed forward as well.

If Nate has told McKie that if he withdraws from the NBA draft, that he’s transferring as a graduate student, than McKie can probably offer Nate’s bb scholarship to a new recruit. If so, t
McKie has in his pocket both Hamilton’s and Nate’s scholarship openings to offer to two new players.

Hope McKie is asked by the press soon whether Nate has told him his intention, so we learn how many Temple scholarships sre still available.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
If Nate does not return to Temple, the roster will be be filled with players who can shoot the ball, but loses in Nate, it’s best defender and rebounder (8.5 per game), and in Rose, it’s highest scorer (16.5 ppg) who is also a good defender.

Temple loses in both players a combined 66.2 mpg, 27.3 points per game, 10.3 foul-shots per game, 13.5 rebounds per game, 6.6 assists per game, 4.6 turnovers per game, and 3.8 steals per game.

Temple will return a far less experienced team who are likely to be better shooters who will turn the ball over less. Butch no combination of players are likely to match in 66.2 mpg, their number of foul-shots, rebounds, steals, nor be as good defensively.

It will be interesting to see if Temple!s likely better shooting next season, will offset the likely decline in Temple’s number of foul shots, steals, and rebounds per game.

Such will clearly come into focus next season, as we’ll see whether Temple scores more or less points per game, and whether opponents score more or less points per game.

Do think that if both Scott and Perry replace Rose and Nate’s playing time, and Perry is willing to shoot the ball way more often than he did this past season, that Temple will score more points, and opponents scoring may or may not increase.

Nate’s departure will also increase Dunn’s playing time. He’s not only an excellent shooter, but like Nate, likes to mixaup and fight for rebounds inside.

While Temple will likely make less turnovers with Nate and Rose replacements, that will be most likely be offset by Alani departing, and whoever replaces him turning the ball over more than he did. May well be that Alani’s replacements are not as an efficient scoring the ball, but are better defenders.

Will know more when the final roster is set and players return in the fall.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Hope Temple is able to sign high-scoring transfer 6’7” Russell Harrison from Clarendon College. Averages 19.6 mpg, averages 18.3 ppg. Amazing given he plays but 19 mpg.

Shoots three’s at 41.6 percent, Gets to foul-line..75 percent foul shooter. Averages 8.1 rebounds per game. How does someone do that in only 19 mpg? Turnover rate a little high at once every 11.5 minutes. No excessive fouling.On paper, better than both Rose and Moorman.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
It amazes me that Temple this season in non-conference games committed almost 2 less turnovers per game than opponents did, and in conference games, Temple committed 1.3 more turnovers as opponents did. That’s a big swing. It wan’t as if opponents were that much better than non-conference opponents were.

The reason for the decline is that both Rose and Nate, Temple’s primary ball distributors got worse as the season progressed as they were primarily responsible for Temple’s turnover reversal as they went from a combined 3.6 turnovers per game in non-conference games to a combined 5.2 turnovers in conference games. How HC McKie could stand-by and not change Temple’s ball distribution distribution to Alani Moore, a low turnover player, is hard to fathom.

Just as it’s hard to understand why HC McKie stood by and let Rose and Nate shoot as much as they did as they started off the season shooting poorly and never improved.

Rose came into Temple’s fifth game against Maryland shooting but 35 percent from the field, and Nate but 42 percent. He should have known after Temple faced 5th ranked Maryland, a game that Temple was in to the very end being led by Alani’s outstanding shooting (6-10 on three’s), only to lose due to Rose and Nate combining in shooting but 4-23 from the field, that he needed to move his better shooters to front of the line. He didn’t.

They both wound-up shooting around 40 percent on two’s for the season and only 31 percent on two’s.

As a result Temple averaged just 67.9 ppg in conference play.

Even though HC McKie messed up big-time with Temple’s offense, he did a much better job with Temple’s defense as it was better than the year before, even though it slipped somewhat in conference play. As Temple gave up but 67.9 points per game for the season compared to 71.5 ppg the previous season.

Even opponent conference points dropped from 72.7 points per game the year before to 70.9 in conference play this past season.

Even with Rose and Alani departing, and Nate possibly not returning, until the roster is completely known, one should not draw the conclusion as yet that Temple cannot return to averaging 75 ppg as it did in the 20-18-2919 season.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Josh Pierre-Louis has placed his name on the transfer portal. Not surprised, as one can see him him stew on the bench expressing his disappointment with his playing time. Also, heard rumblings from a family member at games. At one time, he was leaving, then staying, then leaving again. Same for Nate.

My own opinion is that Josh’s game is limited, and he would not have played this up-coming many more than the 12 minutes per game he played last season. As he’s too tunneled vision, doesn’t see the whole court and find the open.

Has a high turnover rate by making too many poor passes, fouls excessively, and didn’t improve his game over the course of the season. Exciting athlete, with low bb IQ. No place for such a player at this level. Can still clean up his game. Good luck Josh.

It’s not known how Josh transferring effects the likelihood of his brother Nate returning to Temple if he’s not drafted in the NBA draft. He surely has other options such as entering the transfer portal as a graduate student since he’s graduating early this year, or going and playing professionally overseas. My own view is that he won't be drafted and instead will return to Temple.

Since Nate’s goal is to eventually become a pro, it makes no sense for him to return to Temple, as college ball is completely different than playing pro ball, and in my opinion, is of little help in later playing pro ball. Nevertheless, he loves Temple.

While I would like to see Nate return, I don’t like how McKie used him. Thought he would helped Temple more coming off the bench, as his defense and rebounding did not offset the his pronounced decline in his offense, and his poor decision-making both driving to the hoop in half-court sets, and dribbling and passing the ball.

If Nate does return, do believe Mckie will start him, and that would be a mistake as that would keep Temple from scoring more points than it did last season, the one stat Temple must upgrade.

With Hamilton and Josh’s scholarships now open, McKie has the opportunity if he can bring-in two transfers that would greatly enhance Temple’s roster. And Nate’s scholarship will also be available if he doesn’t return.

One should not forget that Temple scored but 51-points in it’s next to last game against Tulsa, and but 63-points against AAC leader Cincinnati. In the Tulsa game, Rose and Nate combined in shooting 5-20 from the field,
and followed that up shooting 5-25 in the Cincinnati game.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Temple is now entering a critical period.

Right now, Temple doesn’t look it will be very good as it’s very weak upfront, and I don’t have confidence that Strickland will adequately replace Alani Moore.

My view would change if Temple is able to sign 6’7” JUCO transfer Russell Harrison and T.Silver. As I see Harrison as an efficient scoring machine who is a much better player than Q.Rose, as he’s a far better shooter who gets to the foul line a lot, is a far better rebounder that Temple will needs upfront. He should provide Temple with a terrific small ball line-up that Temple will have to rely on next season.

Silver is a deadly three-point shooter who I hope can play some at PG, and would challenge Strickland for playing time.

If they are on the court together, do think Silver, Scott, Harrison, and Perry, would be awesome offense force on the court that Temple didn’t have this past season.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Given the Coronavirus, we should not take for granted there will even be a college bb season season starting in the fall. As experts indicate that different States will reach their death apex at different times with some being as late at May or early June, and after that there is be a slow decline.

The virus is expected last 9-12 months from now, and to return in the fall. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens and when people sre able socially interact again. Expect there to be some consideration of possibly shortening season and cancelling non-conference games.

Hope none of this happens. Will continue to text here as if there is a bb season to look forward to.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
I’m really hoping that Dre Perry will be given a much larger roll in Temple’s offense.

Statistically he was the best shoot in the AAC last season, as he shot 56.9 percent on two’s and 41.3 percent on three’s. Unfortunately, he was brought off the bench and only averaged 17.6 mpg. Making matters worse-he only averaged taking 4.6 shots per game or one every 3.8 minutes per game.

At times, it wasn’t clear whether he was just reluctant to shoot or McKie wanted others to shoot. Probably a combination of both. Was hard watching Rose, a crappy shooter, taking one fga every 2.3 minutes. Perry should have been shooting as often as Rose, and Rose less often.

My main concern this up-coming season is that McKie will once again not put his best players on the court and may not even play them in the right positions. As it took him almost the entire season to realize he should not be subbing Josh in for Alani, but rather for Nate. He never did realize that Perry should have started in place of Moorman or Nate, nor did he consider moving Rose to PF so Scott could start. There’s do many different combination of players should have experimented with to improve Temple offense, but didn’t.

It was hard to watch Temple, game after game, struggle to score30-points in the first half. Didn't need to be.

As a result, a good team struggled to both score points and win games.

Even so Temple played excellent ball against nationally ranked Maryland, beat a good USC team, was right there till the end against a good Miami team, beat then nationally ranked Wichita State, played toe to toe with Houston, beat a good SMU team, was right there with AAC champion Cincinnati on their home court in the last game of the season, and beat UConn, playing the conference’s best ball at the end of the season (8-3 record finishing conference play), in double-overtime.

If not good that we, as fans, were only given a glimpse of who we should have seen more on the court.

I add Justyn Hamilton to that list, even given the fact that he played poorly, as I had more more confidence with him guarding the rim, then either Forrester or Moorman. Do think Hamilton was one of those tragic stories of a player with so much potential who the HC didn’t get the best out of. Wish him the best at his next school, and glad to see quality bb programs recruiting him.

We’ll need to see if a radically re-built Temple team will let us see the best players play. Do hope that unwarranted favoritism will not occur again.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Before leaving Hamilton, the common complaint is that he didn’t rebound well. And while that is true, in fact, of all of Temple’s big men, Temple gave up the fewest points when Hamilton played. That means the ball was going in the hoop less often, and that other Temple players were rebounding the ball when Hamilton played. And with Nate averaging 8 rebounds per game, Temple was rebounding the ball ok. That tells that Hamilton was doing his job.

Because Hamilton didn’t rebound well, McKie often played him away from the hoop. That was a mistake, but even so, advanced stats show he was Temple’s best player defending the hoop. McKie ignored that when Temp”e got off to their great start, Hamilton was Temple’s starter playing good minutes, yet quickly decided to play him fewer minutes once Forrester was granted s waiver to play, and quickly started to ply him significant minutes.,

McKie hurt Hamilton’s confidence by playing him 23 minutes in the USC game that Temple won, in which he had 7 rebounds, only to play him 12 minutes in the follow-up Maryland game that Forrester played in, and that resulted in a Temple loss.

In only 9 minutes of play against St.Joe’s, Hamilton had 5 rebounds, followed by him playing only 6 minutes Temple’s loss to Miami.

At the end of the year the same thing happened again, as Hamilton played 20 minutes in Temple’s win over Tulane, had 7 rebounds, and that was followed by Hamilton only playing 6 minutes in Temple’s follow-up loss to Villanova.

It was also not good to see Hamilton‘s shooting percentage drop from nearly 57 percent on two’s the year before to only 47 percent this past season. Even so, his shooting percentage was better than Rose, Nate, and Moorman, and he should have shot some of their shots.


Such drop in shooting percentages happened for many returning players. Temple’s offense or lack thereof is partially responsible for Temple players seeing their shooting percentages decline.

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Regardless if Nate returns to Temple it’s worth looking at his game.

Most starters in the AAC do not have glaring weaknesses, nor can high-quality AAC teams afford to play players who have significant weaknesses many minutes. This past season shoot was a major problem for him. Last season, he shot well averaging 14 ppg, compared to only 10 ppg in conference play this past season.

As such he should not have averaged 34.1 mpg, but should have been played less.But,there was things that McKie could have done that would have justified Nate’s minutes, by increasing Nate’s shooting percentage, but he didn’t.

As in Temple’s first two games, Nate had 5 and 6 steals respectively. He did so by many times on his own just crowding his opponent and stealing his opponents dribble or attempted pass. He was a one-man wrecking crew. He often scored on easy lay-ups off his steals. His shooting percentage in those first two games was off the chart.

What was remarkable watching him, is that he hardly committed any fouls going for steals. . Although his steals were against Drexel and Morgan State, I believe he could have done the same against far better opponents as even high-quality guards are not use being crowded and actually hate when that occurs, as they rarely have the skills to deal with that as it doesn’t happen often.

Nate should have done that going forward, but didn’t. In fact he averaged but 1.6 steals per conference game. He could have made way more but he rarely crowded his opponent. McKie should have had him doing so.

Nate’s half court game is a total mess. His strength is driving to the hoop, but his decision making as to when to drive and when not to, is not good. He often simply decides to go even though there is one or more opponents waiting for him, resulting in his ball being rejected near the rim or his crashing into his opponents, and his picking up both an offensive foul and turnover on the same play.

He doesn’t make teammates better. Hogs the ball at end of games. Didn’t play team ball. Tried to go one-on one when he should have been looking for open man.

He also does not see the court well, and does not look for players on the perimeter when he penetrates. Even on fast breaks, he often forces his way to the hoop rather than pass the ball to a player on his wing who has a direct path to the hoop.

So, Nate is an extremely gifted athlete, who doesn’t have the smarts or has not been taught how to play in certain situations.

If Nate returns, one can only hope McKie will use his immense skill of stealing the ball, as each steal averages out to be a 2.5 point swing in the score. He’s the best.

One reason McKie should have employed his pressure defense way more than he did. He had the athlete’s do so. Instead he decided to play the equivalent of the prevent defense in football. We saw the results.

JUCO transfer SG Tariq Silver commits to Oregon State.

If Nate not drafted by NBA and doesn’t return to Temple, last season’s starting backcourt of Alani, Rose, and Nate will all need to be replaced.

Temple does seem to be on a downward trajectory. No need to

RE: Temple men’s bb 2019-2020
Pretty bad ending to horrible season. Was hoping post-season HC McKie would reflect and have some introspection by realizing that Temple went from a 23-10 record to a 14-17 because he made a bad mistake thrusting both Rose and NPL as focal points of Temple’s offense this past season.

And that he would have learned that Temple would have done far better if he played Perry, Scott, and Hamilton, way more than he did.

Now Rose, Alani, D.Moore, Nate, Josh, Scott, and Hamilton are all gone. The cabinets are now bare. McKie blames the players, not himself for last season dim performance.

I enjoyed knowing some of the players. All really love basketball and have it their all.

Fans are left scratching their heads. Some fans think he had little to work with last season. Others, and in my view, more insightful fans, think he did.

All realize that Temple is now starting anew. Fans disappointed that quality players not being brought into the fold, nor could they be with Temple having a 6-12 conference record. But 4 open slots still remain so there’s some hope.

For me, it’s how well Temple started the season only to fall into the abyss in conference play. and what the past season could have been been.

Enjoyed texting about this past season. Thanks to those who read my posts. I’ll keep you up-dated as to where departing players transfer to.

I’m sure I’ll read Temple box scores, and wish Temple the best going forward as it rebuilds.
