On Saturday the Men’s Basketball team hosted the Texas Longhorns at the Wells Fargo Center.
In the first half it was all Texas. the Longhorns led by as many as 16-points thanks in part to this first half slam by center Cameron Ridley. However this deficit did not hold back the trailing Owls.
After a Temple rally mid-way through the second half, Dalton Pepper brings the owls back within two with this three-point basket.
Three minutes to go, Pepper, assists a running Anthony Lee who throws one down to tie the game up at 70.
Now in the overtime period, temple up 80-78, Dalton Pepper misreads his foul shot and is called on a zone infraction dismissing the Owls chance to lengthen their lead to three points.
With 12 seconds to go, Texas’ Javon Felix runs down the court and chucks up a three-point prayer somehow swishing the shot giving the Longhorns the go-ahead win.
The Owls go on to lose the game in overtime 81-80.
