He says that Temple's transition to being the most explosive offense in the Atlantic 10 has been fueled by the emergence of Wyatt on the wing.

The emergence of Khalif Wyatt. The junior has the second-highest PER in the conference (24.94). Wyatt, a wing, actually emerged in the second half of last season, but has used the 2011-12 campaign to continue building an efficient offensive profile. Wyatt has a usage rate of 20.5 percent, one of the highest among the Owls, but is the most efficient player (according to Pomeroy, an offensive rating of 1.16). He is connecting on 55.1 percent of his 2-point attempts and 40.3 percent from beyond the arc, having scored in double-digits nearly every game this season.
