inia in the championship game.We beat two ranked teams this weekend. Any time you can do that, its huge for a team, Enechionyia Antworten

NEW YORK -- Obi Enechionyia and his Temple teammates beat two Top 25 teams to win the NIT Season Tip-Off.Its a confidence boost, Enechionyia said Friday after he had 22 points and 12 rebounds to lead Temple to an 81-77 upset of No. 19 West Virginia in the championship game.We beat two ranked teams this weekend. Any time you can do that, its huge for a team, Enechionyia added. Knowing that we can beat anyone, I think thats big for us.Enechionyia scored 18 points in the first half for Temple (4-2) but it was his free throw with 1 second left that sealed the championship for the Owls.Enechionyia was named the Most Outstanding Player of the two-day tournament.Alain Moore II added 18 points for the Owls, while Daniel Dingle finished with 15 and Quinton Rose 12.Esa Ahmad had 19 points for West Virginia (4-1) while Teyvon Myers added 15 and Nathan Adrian and Tarik Phillip had 13 apiece.Mountaineers coach Bob Huggins critique of his teams performance was laced with frustration.We didnt guard, Huggins said. We didnt guard the way were capable of guarding. Our help defense was atrocious. We fouled too much. We didnt make free throws. We missed open shots. We missed 17 layups. Seventeen point-blank shots. We shot 61 percent from the free throw line. We work our butt off to try to get people to turn it over. They turn it over 19 times and we give it back to them 16.Temple led 45-25 at halftime due to two extended stretches in which the Owls held the Mountaineers without a point.Following Phillips layup 1:29 into the game, West Virginia did not score for 5:28 until Adrians layup at 13:09. During that stretch, the Owls outscored the Mountaineers 13-0. Then, after Ahmads layup with 5:28 left in the half, Temple scored the next nine points until Phillips knocked down a 3 to cut the deficit to 38-23.The Owls held West Virginia to 32.3 percent shooting from the field, including 27.3 percent from 3-point range in the first half. Temple forced West Virginia into 11 first-half turnovers.We dont do a good job of finding open guys, Huggins said. We have consistently shot very, very poorly.West Virginia finished with 16 turnovers while misfiring on 38 of 67 shots from the field.Trailing by 20, West Virginia ratcheted up its trademark press defense in the second half. Phillips drilled a 3 right in front of the Mountaineers bench that caused Temple coach Fran Dunphy to call time out with 11:31 left, West Virginia was credited with nine forced turnovers in 8 1/2 minutes.You knew they were going to make their run, Dunphy said. I didnt anticipate that we were going to have that kind of cushion throughout the second half. I was just hoping it (wouldnt) dissipate as quickly as it did.The timeout did not stem West Virginia as the Mountaineers scored 13 of the next 17 points to take a 65-64 lead. It was their first lead since opening the game on a 7-0 run. A layup by Ahmad made it 67-64.The game was so crazy in the second half. They dont let you run any kind of offense, Dunphy said. It was just a crazed style of game in the second half.But Temple would not go away.The Owls took a 75-71 lead on the strength of an 11-4 run spanning 2:36. Moore made four free throws in the stretch, and Rose added two free throws and a jumper.The final 4:44 saw Moore play a pivotal role. The 5-foot-10 guard grabbed three rebounds and made two free throws to set the stage for Enechionyia.BIG PICTURETemple: Two strong performances against Top 25 teams can only bode well for the Owls once American Athletic Conference play begins.West Virginia: The Mountaineers first four games were blowout victories. Being forced to play a possession-by-possession game in the second half could benefit West Virginia over the course of the season.POLL IMPLICATIONSTemple: The Owls beat the No. 25 and No. 19 teams in the nation on consecutive days. That may be enough for the Owls to sneak into the Top 25.West Virginia: A four-point loss to an unranked team should not cause West Virginia to drop out of the Top 25.NOTABLETemple: The Owls came into the game having defeated No. 25 Florida State on Thursday night. The win allowed Temple to extend its streak of defeating a Top 25 team to 10 straight years.West Virginia: The Mountaineers entered the game leading the nation with 13.7 steals and 27 forced turnovers per game. Their 15.7 turnover margin was also best in the nation.UP NEXTTemple: Visits Saint Josephs Wednesday.West Virginia: Hosts Manhattan Monday.
