A-10: Close But no Cigar

By Matthew Shapiro - March 07, 2007

ATLANTIC CITY - For the fourth time today, a lower seeded team has fought valiantly against a higher seed, only to fall in the end. Temple just didn't have enough in the tank, and lost for the third time this year to St. Joe's, this time 66-62.

The loss will likely end Temple's streak of postseason berths at 23. The Owls were in the NCAA Tournament from 1983 to 2001 (except in 1989, when they were in the NIT), and the NIT from 2002-2006. Mark Tyndale led the charge for Temple with 22 points, while Dionte Christmas had a disappointing night, dropping only seven points, and none after halftime.

Well, after almost 12 hours of basketball, that does it for day one at Boardwalk Hall. I'll be back a little bit later to recap some results and take a quick look at what's to come tomorrow on quarterfinal day in Atlantic City.
