Cats Travel to Temple for Round 2 Tuesday Night

This Tuesday at 7 pm ET the Bearcats head to Philadelphia to face the Temple Owls.  The game will air on CBS Sports Network.  Last time around UC buried the Owls at Fifth Third Arena 84-53.  For a full breakdown of the Owls check out our earlier article here.

This game will be the tiebreaker for 3rd place in the conference.  Since round 1 on January 17th, Temple has gone on a tear winning 5 in a row against USF, UCF, Tulane, USF, and Memphis.  The Owls defeated Memphis by 1 in a thriller.

We look for Cobb to continue his recent run.  Johnson or Sanders will also have to step up and add a few key 3’s.  Neither Ellis nor Caupain can afford to get in foul trouble, and hopefully Clark can get back on track in a big game road environment.

Prediction:  Cats win 65-60.
