Cincinnati's Sean Kilpatrick got kind of freaked out by the Owl eyes at the Liacouras Center on Sunday

If you take out the students who were sitting behind the basket, this is basically what Sean Kilpatrick was looking at in the second half yesterday.

The Temple Owls rallied from 19 points down and very nearly knocked off the No. 15 Cincinnati Bearcats on Sunday. Behind a career-high 33 points from Dalton Pepper, Temple tied the game with 36.7 seconds remaining, but ultimately fell 80-76.

Kilpatrick, who finished with a team- and season-high 29, drew a foul in the lane with 7.2 seconds to go and went to the line for the game-winning free throws. Cincy's leading scorer had actually dropped 27 points in the game's first 27 minutes, and was held scoreless for the next 13.

Maybe the Owl eyes weirded him out?

"This is one of our top two [wins]," he said. "Memphis was the No. 1. But this is top two because this is a hard place to play at.

"The craziest thing I saw shooting free throws was the Owl eyes in the back.

"That's something ... that's crazy."

Just not crazy enough to get him to miss those free throws.

All-Star sidelined for Sixers' game vs. Bucks

CAMDEN, N.J. -- The first matchup between the oversized point guards will have to wait.

Ben Simmons will not face off against Giannis Antetokounmpo, who is sidelined because of soreness in his right knee, in the Sixers' Saturday evening game against the Bucks. Antetokounmpo is averaging 28.2 points, 10.1 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.3 blocks per game this season. 

That’s not the only absence.

Jerryd Bayless, who had started in place of JJ Redick (leg), is out with a sore left wrist. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot gets the nod at shooting guard.

“It’s another opportunity to show up and make some shots and prove that I can do that,” Luwawu-Cabarrot said at shootaround, also noting he has to play tough defense on Eric Bledsoe (17.7 points per game).

Reigning Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon will also miss the game because of a personal matter, per the Journal Sentinel. Brogdon beat out Joel Embiid and Dario Saric for the award last season. 

Markelle Fultz (right shoulder) remains out. He worked on free throws, driving drills, and knocked down a jumper in the portion of shootaround available to the media.
