He's so bitter that his pupil Monty Scott didn't work out here. It's so weird. Guy isn't even a Temple fan.

I’m not bitter at all. Temple lost conference games against SMU, Tulane, and UConn by double-digit margins when Scott played few minutes and took few shots. Temple same teams he when he played a lot and scored many points.

UConn won and scored 78 more points in the first game against Temple when Scott played but 10 minutes. In the second game that Temple won in double overtime, UConn scored only 69 points in regulation, in part dure to Scotf playing 30 minutes. Scott played better that both Moorman and Perry in that game. So Temple was better defensively with Scott playing a lot than when he didn’t play.

Scott also played 26 minutes in Temple’s win over WSU in which Scott played 26 minutes and WSU scored but 51 points. So stop with the garbage Scott can’t play defense.

At PSU Scott had a defensive rating of 95 per 100 possessions, better than any Temple guard the last two years.

Feel bad for Temple losing Scott. He has a high bb IQ, and both Scott and the team would have thrived in both half court sets and in the open court.

Believe if Scott had started for Temple and played substantial minutes as he was one of Temple’s best players, and we can argue whether he was Temple’s best player. No guarantee that Scott would have started for Temple this past year even if returned.

Things could not have worked out better for Scott. Always though that Scott’s best position was playing PG. After a few games played at Portland State he was moved to PG and has remained there since. He’s thrived playing PG.

Now going to play at EMU for new HC who’s taken three different teams to NCAA tournament and won NBA G-league championship last year.

Temple really needs to upgrade it’s center position. Didn’t do so this season.

Don’t think that both Forrester and Tolbert are as good as other centers in the conference.Tolbert is undersized and does not have an offensive inside game. He may add some punch from the perimeter, but no evidence he’s a decent three-point shooter. Temple cannot afford for three straight years to under perform at the center position.

A very unimpressive performance, as Portland State loses to whatever Northern Arizona is. James Monty Scott fails to record an assist in 27 minutes of action. Poor shooting from 3 as well.

If you watched the game you would have seen player after player miss wide open shots that Scott distributed to them. Two of them combined on 1-13 on fga’s.

In 5 out of 6 on his prior games, Scott averaged 4.1 assists per game. In three of them Scott had 7,5, and 6 assists.

His 16 points came from his making 50 percent of his two’s (4-8), making 5 of 7 foul shots, and shooting 1-4 on three’s. If you watched the game you would have noticed he made another three that was waved off because another PSU player was called for a rule infraction and another made shot was ruled a two pointer because Scott’s foot was on the three-point-line.

He took only 12 fga’s. Should have been told to double that.

In 5 of his previous 6 games, he averaged 17.2 ppg, making half his two’s and three’s. He shot 8-16 on three’s. His success was do to his moving his left foot back further when shooting jump shots. He also got fouled on 6 of his 22 made field goals. He also averaged 4.1 rebounds, and 2 steals, and 4.1assists as previously mentioned.

Scott was in the 8 of his conference in conference play, in scoring, offensive rebounds, assists, and steals.

Three years ago Temple averaged 75. 8 points per game in conference play, and opponents averaged 72.7 points per game, thus providing Temple with a 3.1 ppg positive scoring differential over it’s opponent. That positive scoring margin resulted in Temple having a 13-5 conference record.

In the last two seasons Temple has been outscored by approximately a 4 ppg margin in conference play, resulting in Temple having a 5-10 this past. conference record two seasons ago, and a 4-11 conference record this past season.

Temple averaged 65-points and opponents 69.1 points per game in conference play this past season, Last season, Temple averaged 66.7 point per game in in.conference play and opponents 70.9 points per game in
conference play.

In order for Temple to have a winning record next season and eliminate the 4-point scoring deficit, Temple needs to go from committing more turnovers than their opponents, to committing less turnovers than their opponents, and needs to have a higher than the 45 percent they had shorting two’s this past season, and to hold opponents to shooting the ;7 percent they fdid on te’s this past season.

One has to see if with the addition of new recruits like Miller, Hicks, and with Sage Tolbert, a transfer, and sophomore J White, along with Temple’s returnees who played last season, can do that.

Temple wasn’t able to sign a big who can contribute immediately this past season. Instead Temple signed an Sage Tolbert, an undersized center who is recovering from an injury and couldn’t play. Do hope Temple can bring in a big who can play an upgrade Temple’s Center position. next season.

Two keys to next season. 1)Signing big man that’s better than either Forrestor or Tolbert.
2) Ditto

4-2 odds that Hicks split his shorts jack-knifing his jump shot.

Worse thing that can happen to Temple-no player transfers out.

Temple Brandan Barry, a 45 percent three-point shooter, shot the ball just once every 5 minutes of playing time. Should have been shooting once every 2.5 minutes. That’s on the HC.

I guess I’m the only one who will miss Dre Perry if he does not return. Never allowed to show his best. He liked coming off the bench. Not many players feel that way.

RE: Temple’s men’s 2020-2021 basketball season
So proud of James Scott this year. Finnally got to play PG that j’ve always maintained was his natural position at Portland State.

In conference play, he averaged 31 mpg, 15.5 ppg, 4.9 foul shots, 5.3 rebounds, including 1.7 offensive rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.8 steals, committed 3.1 turnovers, and 2.6 fouls per game. Shot 35.7 percent on three’s in 14 conference games.

His 1.7 offensive rebounds per game is impressive for a PG as is his 5.3 rebounds per game.

Would have had less turnovers if only PSU bigs bigs inside could catch the ball, and more assists, if big could finish inside when he caught the ball, teammates could hit three’s, and PSU fast breaked more.

Had two straight bad games shooting three’s. In other 12 games Scott averaged 42.8 percent shooting three.He averaged 42.8 percent shooting three’s. averaged 3.1 turnovers per game but only 13-points scored off his turnovers. Did shoot poorly on foul-shots. Needs to get back to shooting 85 percent on foul shots as he did at KSU.

Only 13 points scored off his turnovers over 14 conference games do to the nature of his turnovers. twenty five points scored in 14 games off his steals.

After PSU lost to Weber State by 28-points, rwo days later he was installed as starting PG and led PSU to a 2-point win over Weber State. Almost pulled off an upset of NCAA tournament bound Oregon State in next start as starting PG, as he brought PSU from big deficit to put PSU ahead by 1- point on a 3-point play with 4 minutes to go, only to be trailing by 1-point with 24-seconds remaining. PSU lost but Scott was high scorer in game with 16 points.

In conference play, Scott had excellent defensive rating of 94.5 points per 100 possessions.

You seem to care. Can’t stop mentioning him. Temple fans do care how Temple players who transferred are doing.

RE: Temple’s men’s 2020-2021 basketball season
One huge reason Temple has fell from being ranked 60th under in the nation under Dunphy to now being ranked 120th under McKie, is because Rose, NPL, Dunn, Battle, and Williams, all have shot jump shots outside the paint at 30 percent or lower. So those who think Temple has a good backcourt should re-think their view.

Mckie should have had his better shooters shooting those shots.

More mid-range shots are shot in a game than at the rim or beyond the arc. I called for Temple to shoot more three’s or go to the rim more, as Temple shoots better from those spots, but such fell on deaf ears.

No wonder Temple scores in the 60’s. Till Temple brings in players who can shoot those two’s above 38-percent, Temple’s future is not bright. We’ll see if in-coming freshman PG Hysier Miller can.

Temple is lucky that the AAC has few guards who shoot substantially better on mid-range shots.

So discuss Temple players all you want, but Temple will continue to struggle to win games until new players appear who can make those shots.

James Scott was Temple’s last player to shoot above 40-percent on long two’s for the season shot 44.2 percent on jumpers taken from outside the paint. See Bart Torvik ratings. I just regret Temple didn’t have him this past season. Not bitter.

It’s ridiculous that Temple!s opponents shoot more three’s than Tempe did when Temple has Brandan Barry a 45-percent shooter on three’s. He was totally under utilized.
