Penn basketball vs. Temple: Five revealing statistics

(11/12/13 6:25am)

1. Only six bench points The Quakers did not get much help from their bench on Saturday, as the unit only contributed six points. Just two non-starters scored: junior Henry Brooks and freshman Dylan Jones. Brooks, who played a considerable 26 minutes off the bench, went just 2-for-6 from the field. The only other basket from the bench came from Jones’ emphatic dunk. Junior guard Patrick Lucas-Perry, the Quakers’ premier deep threat last season, went scoreless in just seven minutes of action. The Quakers need to see a jump in bench production.
