Temple took down Larry Brown’s previously undefeated Southern Methodist Mustangs 89-80 this afternoon in Philly. The game was originally scheduled to take place yesterday, but the blizzard forced it to today. Backup guard Devin Coleman was a perfect 7-for-7 from three and 8-for-8 from the field for 23 points.
Temple shot 14-for-29 from three as a team, and turned a close game into a blowout down the stretch with a flurry of threes in the middle of the second half. The Owls are now 11-7 and the Mustangs’ shot at a perfect season is over (it was always unlikely they’d stay undefeated through the year, but since they’re banned from postseason play, it was all they had to play for). They were the last undefeated team to fall this season.
