Tonight, the Cherry Crusade gets what it wants.
The group of student fans for Temple athletics has been chanting ‘Bring on St. Joe’s’ and its more expletive-ridden brother, since the first half of the Owls win over Charlotte on Wednesday, which Temple won 75-61.
And today they get them. At 7 p.m. tonight check out Comcast Sports Net to see your Owls take on the Hawks.
Everything is on the line.
The rivalry is already hot, but now St. Joe’s is second in the A-10 and Temple is locked in third. Only the top four teams in the conference get a first round bye in the tournament.
So huge, that scoring duo Mark Tyndale and Dionte Christmas really ought to prepare with some campy interview schtick, like this one from earlier in the season by CSTV.[youtube:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6I6TxowqYxI 350 292]
