Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.
The model knows the Phoenix have shown balance this season with four players averaging in double figures. Leading the way is junior guard Zac Ervin, who is averaging 14.2 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game. He is connecting on 40 percent of his 3-pointers and 88.2 percent of his free throws. Ervin scored 13 points and grabbed four rebounds in 25 minutes of action against Ole Miss on Friday. It was his fourth consecutive 10-plus scoring night.
The model also knows Temple has not lost all three games of an in-season tournament since the 1976 Rainbow Classic. It is also the first time the Owls have played in a seventh-place game since the 2007 Puerto Rico Tip-Off Classic. Sophomore guard Khalif Battle continues to lead the team in scoring, averaging 17.8 points and 2.8 rebounds per game. Last year, Battle led the team in scoring at 15 points per game, while ranking second in rebounding at 6.4, and was named third-team All-American Athletic Conference.
