Temple’s men’s 2020-2021 basketball season
Temple kicks-off it’s basketball season playing NJIT at 4:30 pm tomorrow. Fans are anxious to see Temple’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. Should be a competitive game.

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

Temple starts the season with J.White still recovering from surgery. Newcomer transfer Brandon Barry just joined the team and is not expected to play. T. Strickland is a game-time decision. Transfer S.Tolbert is also recovering from an injury.

The starting line-up will 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. Temple needs both K.Battle and freshman J.Williams to play well.

This past season was a transitional one as Rose, Alani Moore, and D.Moore graduated, and NPL opted out to play pro ball. Scott, Hamilton, and JPL all
transferred to other schools. After this past season ended, both Dre Perry and JP Moorman transferred out as well.

Will Temple will improve and win more than half their games?

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. 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 they’re off shooting three’s; (3) Run no plays for Forrester so he will not turn the ball over as often as he does, and play him less minutes to avoid him piling up fouls, and (4) Pressure the perimeter in order to cause turnovers and reduce opponents three-field goal percentage.

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, but did not accept a bb scholarship, but instead signed with VCU.

The turnover differential between opposing teams often determines the outcome of games. Dunphy almost always won the turnover battle and thus won many games.

In HC Mckie first two seasons as HC, Temple’s turnovers increased, and Temple lost the turnover battle. Helps explain Temple’s losing record the last two seasons. Temple has athletes capable of playing a pressure defense that would have force way more opponent turnovers.

If Temple had retained Scott, Hamilton, and JPL, Temple would have had a far stronger team this season.

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

Forget that Temple outscored nationally 5th ranked Maryland in the first half and led for 35 of the 40 minute game. Temple did so well because 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 applied to Maryland’s PG Cowan, and he went off shooting three’s.

Temple did beat talented USC last season, and beat undefeated Houston in conference play the year before. Temple has had talented players.

Houston is the #9 team in the country.

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

How's Portland State doing?

With 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. The skill-set of each player is quite different.

Tolbert is a better shot-blocker, but often blocks ball out of bounds.

Temple won games against SMU, Tulane, and UConn, with Scott, and 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 basis for trashing PSU that went 8-10 in conference play while Temple went 4-11 in conference play. PSU would have done far better but it’s National Junior College transfer player of the year was a bust.

PSU outplayed NCAA Elite Eight Oregon State by 10 points in the second half. Houston was outscored by by Oregon State in the second half.
