Temple Owls


Temple defensive end Praise Martin-Oguike was granted an additional year of eligibility by the NCAA, the school announced on Tuesday.


Temple enters its NIT semifinal game against Miami two wins away from its first postseason tournament title in 46 years, a streak that began after it won the 1969 NIT title.


Temple had been awaiting the result of Monday night’s matchup between Louisiana Tech and Texas A&M to find out who it would take on next in the NIT.


It won't take the sting out of Villanova's unceremonious exit from the NCAA Tournament, but two Wildcats won Big 5 awards on Monday morning.
