Temple’s men’s 2020-2021 basketball season
Temple kicks-off it’s basketball season playing NJIT at 4:30 pm tomorrow. This is also NJIT’s first game. Fans are anxious to see Temple’s newly reconstituted roster’s new players.

NJIT was 9-23 last season and has moved from the A-Sun conference to the American East conference. Virtually it’s entire roster is back. Temple is given 76 percent chance of beating NJIT. Do think the game will be competitive.

Temple is projected to finish near the bottom of the conference, as it has many new players.

Temple starts the season with J.White not playing as he is recovering from surgery. Newcomer transfer Brandon Barry who just joined the team is not going to play. Whether T. Strickland plays is a game-time decision. Transfer S.Tolbert is recovering from an injury.

The starting line-up consists of freshman J. Williams, D.Dunn, D.Perry, JP Moorman, and J. Forrester. with K Battle, Quincy A., N.Jourdain, and A.Parks, coming off the bench.

I’m hoping that both Dre Perry and D.Dunn take a big step forward in leading Temple’s offense. Nice if both K.Battle and freshmen J.Williams play well against NJIT.

Have deleted post-game analysis of games. No need to analyze games when a troller is on this site. Just having a discussion of players and coaching should suffice.

This past season was a transitional one for Temple as Temple had an almost new roster with Rose, Alani Moore, and D.Moore having graduated, and NPL having opted out to hopefully play pro ball, and Scott and Hamilton having transfer to other schools. After this past season ended, both Dre Perry and JP Moorman headed for the hills.

Real question is whether Temple will improve and win more than half their games or not.

HC McKie says Temple will play up-tempo next year. Should have done that last two years to maximize the strength of his players and hide their weaknesses. Player weaknesses will not disappear next season, but if Mckie follows his plan, Temple May be a slightly better team than last season.

McKie needs to do four obvious things if Temple is to win games: (1) Get Barry to shoot more three’s; (2) Have Perry and Moorman drive to the hoop more when their off shooting three’s; (3) Run no plays for Forrester so he will mot to turn the ball over as often as he does, and play him less minutes so he can’t foul much, and (4) Pressure the perimeter in order to reduce opponents three-field goal percentage and cause opponent turnovers.

Owlscoop 'broadcasters' want to know why Monty Scott's creepy shooting coach is still concerning himself with Temple. You didn't go here. Go focus your energy on Portland State's mediocrity. You're just talking to yourself.

Portland State sits at 6-9, and 3-5 in whatever conference they're in--second to last behind Idaho. James Monty Scott leads the team in all categories, which is less impressive, and more of an indicator as to how terrible they are. Glaringly awful shooting at 35.1% from the field, under 63% from the FT line, and under 30% from 3. He's turning the ball over 3.1 times per game, which also leads the team.

PSU has played 4 non-D-I games.

When VCU’s star SG Bones Hyland left Temple after his recruitment visit, he said that he loved Temple. Afterwards, HC McKie expressed to others that he was concerned that Hyland was “too thin.” Temple wound-up signing SG D.Dunn. Wish someone would ask McKie whether Hyland was offered a Temple scholarship.

If not offered, such will haunt Temple bb for years to come.

Thanks for info on Bones Hyland. Still doesn’t answer question whether, if qualified, McKie would have offered him a scholarship?

The turnover differential between opposing teams often determines the outcome of games. So it’s sad to see the number of turnovers Temple commits increase the last two seasons, and the number of Temple steals and forced opponent turnovers decline the last two seasons. No wonder Temple had has a losing record the last two seasons.

Especially sad as Temple has the athletes capable of playing a pressure defense that would force opponent turnovers.

Temple would have had a far stronger team this season if Mckie had retained both Scott and Hamilton.

Temple fans put down Temple players as not being highly rated.

Forget that Temple outplayed nationally 5th ranked Maryland in 35 of the 40 minute game, as season, and Temple led at the half. Temple did so well is that the Mckie maximized his squad’s athleticism and speed, employed a pressure defense in the first half, and Alani Moore shot 6-10 on three’s. In the second half,. No pressure was on Maryland’s PG Cowan, and he went off shooting three’s.

Also beat talented USC last season, and beat undefeated Houston in conference play the year before.

Temple has had talent to work with.

Probably because we're a few possessions away from being .500.

How's Portland State doing?

With Temple struggling to score points, and Nick Jourdain making 4-3’s in his last two games and blocking 3-shots in his last game, it sure seems that Jourdain should have played far more than he has.

Instead, Moorman has played even though Temple has been outscored per 100 possessions this season when he plays compared to Temple
outscoring it’s opponents by a wide margin when Jourdain plays.

Will be interesting to see whether 6’8” Sage Tolbert is better than Jake Forrester. Seems skill-set of each quite different.Tolbert is a better shot-blocker, but blocks ball out of bounds. That’s not good.

You have no idea what you're talking about as Temple won games against SMU, Temple and UConn, with Scott, that Temple lost when Scott played fewer minutes.

PSU was one of the top teams in the nation in offensive rebounds and steals, and conference opponents averaged 4-less points than Temple opponents did. No need to trash PSU when Temple went 4-11 in conference play, and PSU 8-10 in conference player. PSU would have done far better but National Junior College player of the year as a bust.

PSU outplayed NCAA Elite Eight Oregon State by 10 points in the second half. Houston was outscored by 100 points by Oregon State in the second half. Hope your not inferring Temple is a better team.
