Ne-he-mi-ah

For the record, Nehemiah Ingram -- Temple's infamous goon -- scored two points today.

What impresses me more, though, is that Temple shot 45 percent from the field and 8-16 from three.

And what impresses me most is that at literally the same time, West Virginia -- unranked at the moment, though that clearly shouldn't be the case-- shot the lights out at Villanova. Down 46-37 at halftime, the Mountaineers rallied for a 91-87 win.

West Virginia shot 11-22 from 3; 'Nova shot 15-26. Ten in the first half and five in the second.

The talk of the Palestra media room, in which you literally couldn't move after the game, was that it was a good thing that 'Nova got its first loss out of the way. Still, I can't help wondering what it would have been like if the Cats had won and Duke lost at Wake Forest. Villanova has never been ranked No. 1 in the country, and it seems they still won't be for a while.
