Wes Miller’s team is hoping to keep momentum going against the Temple Owls on Wednesday night with tip off scheduled for 7:00 PM at Fifth Third Arena on ESPN2 and fuboTV.
The Bearcats are coming off a last-second win against Central Florida on Sunday afternoon, while Temple bounced back from a 4-game losing streak with a blowout victory over last place Tulsa.
Both programs are tied in the conference standings with a 9-6 record so the winner will take over sole possession of fourth place with the AAC Tournament less than three weeks away.
In the most recent matchup between the teams, Temple came away with a 70-61 win in early January as Jahlil White dominated the Bearcats with a team-high 14 points and 16 rebounds.

Other players to watch in the upcoming game include Temple backcourt duo Khalif Battle and Damian Dunn, plus sophomore forward Nick Jourdain and sophomore guard Hysier Miller.

Despite coming up short in three straight games against Temple, the Bearcats are slight favorites prior to tip off as David DeJulius and Landers Nolley II look to help snap the losing streak.
