An Early Exit For Temple

Dionte Christmas (left) played one of his best games at the collegiate level, but unfortunately this was the game that Semaj Inge (right)decided to try to become a shooter for the first time in four years. Christmas shot 8-16, including five three pointers to lead all scorers with 29 points. Inge on the other hand shot 0-10 with his two points coming in the form of free throws. Why, on this date, Semaj wanted to score is beyond me. He did average nearly seven shots a game this season, but there is no way that he is considered anything more than a fifth option when he is on the floor. I could certainly understand it if Christmas was being shut down, but Dionte was seemingly having his way with the ASU defense, but beyond that Sergio Olmos and Lavoy Allen were more viable offensive options. Fran Dunphy should have nipped that in the bud. I cannot blame the entire loss on the poor shooting Inge, but if that ball got spread around a bit more, particularly in the first half, I think the Owls would have pulled off the upset.
