Here we are folks, the regular season finale. Our beloved Bulls, 7-21 (1-16), are taking on Temple in final game in the Sun Dome for this season (game begins at 2 PM). Temple, 15-15 (6-11), beat USF 83 to 74 back on 2/5. Here we go, the last time we will see them suit up in front of the home crowd. 

USF is averaging 65.6 PPG while allowing 74.5 PPG. Temple is averaging 70.9 PPG allowing 71.2 PPG. Here are some key Temple players to watch in this game (if you are tuning in):

Shizz Alston, Jr. – 6’4″ 180 lbs. – Junior – Guard – Alston is averaging 14 PPG (63 for 183 from 3-point range), 3.7 RPG, has 120 assists (44 turnovers), 50 steals, and 12 blocks on the year. He had 14 points and 7 assists in the first game.

Obi Enechionyia – 6’10” 220 lbs. – Junior – Forward – Enechionyia is averaging 12.8 PPG (67 for 177 from 3-point range), 5.8 RPG, with 46 blocks and 17 steals. He had 10 points, 5 rebounds, and 3 blocks in the first game.

Daniel Dingle – 6’7″ 225 lbs. – Redshirt senior – Guard/forward – Dingle is averaging 12.5 PPG (53 for 138 from 3-point range), 4.6 RPG with 18 blocks and 31 steals on the year. He had 22 points and 4 rebounds in the first meeting.

Geno Thorpe had 25 points in the first meeting to lead the Bulls while Tulio Da Silva had 18 points in the losing effort.

Well, this is it, the regular season comes to an end with this game. At this point, I don’t care what happens. No one get hurt and just end this long year already. I just want to get to the off-season to see what happens with this program, who takes over as the head coach, and what players come and go.
