Temple is undefeated at home having played eight total games while winning six and drawing two in the process. If they are to pull off a victory on Saturday, they would go on to have an undefeated home record for the first time since 1985 when they went 14–1-2, and their lone loss was the NCAA tournament. The Owls would finish their home record with 7–0-2.
The Owls currently have 10 points in the conference standings, good for fourth, and if they get their third conference win of the season, they could potentially move all the way to second place in the table if Connecticut and Central Florida lose as well.
The Owls have put up good records in the conference recently, not having lost since their first conference game against Louisville.
Meanwhile, Cincinnati is at the bottom of the table with only three points. They have only won one game and lost their other six games. Their last loss came against UConn, but the team was able to win against Louisville in its previous game. The Bearcats had an up and down season so far and will be looking for their second conference win in three games.
Temple will be looking to clinch a Top 4 seed in the American Athletic Conference tournament and a win against Cincinnati on Saturday at 1 p.m. will solidify that.
