By: Renee Washington
Temple Men’s Basketball clinched a top four seed in regular season standings last night with a sound win over East Carolina 70-56. Senior Will Cummings went 6-for-10 from the field to lead the Owls with 16 points. Junior Quenton DeCosey added 11 points and a game-high eight rebounds as sophomore Josh Brown finished 3-for-6 from long range to finish with 11 points as well. 10 players saw action for the Owls and all 10 chipped in with points.
Caleb White led ECU with 13 points who is playing for the No. 7 seed in the conference tournament.Temple has their last regular season game against the UConn Huskies on Saturday at 2p.m. ET. The Owls are currently tied with Cincinatti at 12-5 in conference play, but the Bearcats hold the tiebreaker. Depending on how both teams finish their last regular season game, Temple has the ability to claim sole possession of the third seed. Either way, they will have a first round bye in The American Conference tournament.
