The Temple Owls visit the Charlotte 49ers in hopes of a third consecutive victory.
Looking for a third consecutive win, the Temple Owls visit the Charlotte 49ers on Wednesday night at 7:30 p.m.
Temple beat La Salle last Wednesday to even its Atlantic 10 record at 2-2, then visited the Palestra and came away with a solid non-conference victory against Martland, 73-60. Micheal Eric, a 6-11 graduate center who had missed 13 straight games with a broken patella, returned against Maryland. He played just seven minutes, but should provide the Owls with much-needed size moving forward.
Charlotte has lost three straight in A-10 competition. The 49ers are led by Chris Braswell, who recently scored 31 points against UMass and added 17 points and 13 rebounds against George Washington. Braswell paces Charlotte with 14.5 points per contest, and is averaging 16.0 in A-10 conference play.
Temple leads the all-time series 6-5, but has never beaten Charlotte away from the Liacouras Center.
