Temple releases full 2017-18 basketball schedule

Temple’s full 2017-18 schedule is out and the Owls will look to bounce back after finishing eighth in the American Athletic Conference last season, just two years removed from their 2015 AAC regular season title.

The conference slate features challenging road games at Wichita State, SMU and Cincinnati. Fran Dunphy’s squad will compete in the Charleston Classic in South Carolina, play a non-conference game against 2016-17 semifinalist South Carolina at Madison Square Garden in the Under Armour Reunion, as well as take a trip to the Palestra for a Big 5 matchup against Penn.

Fran Dunphy enters his 12th season as the head coach of Temple, where he has collected 230 wins.

Temple, which finished 16-16 (7-11 in conference) last season, will be led by 6-foot-4 junior guard Shizz Alston, Jr. who averaged 13.9 points and 4.1 assists per game in his second year with the Owls.
