My look at some of the best and worst performances from Temple's 63-46 victory over Alcorn State Monday at the Liacouras Center:
Best performance: Khalif Wyatt's game-high 20 points makes him the easy pick to win this award. The Temple senior guard was stellar from the foul line, making 8 of 9 attempts. Wyatt also finished with four rebounds, two assists and two steals. His game wasn't mistake free, committing a game-high five turnovers. However, the Norristown High product was still the best player on the floor in what was a sloppy game.
Worst performance: Alcorn State guard LeAntwan Luckett had more fouls (five) than points scored (two). The sophomore shot 0-for-8 from the field and had three turnovers in 21 minutes of action.
Best performance in a losing effort: Alcorn State reserve center Josh Nicholas gets this award after scoring 12 points. The 7-foot junior made 5 of 5 shot attempts to go with seven rebounds and two blocks in 22 minutes.
Best performance by a Temple reserve: This award goes to Owls center DeVontae Watson. The freshman finished with four points, four rebounds and three blocked shots in six minutes. The Ambridge native looked lost on a few defensive possessions. However, he did show flashes of someone who will become a great player at Temple.
Worst statistic: Both teams combined to commit 33 turnovers in what – at times – was a hard to watch contest. The Braves committed 18 turnovers, while Temple had 15.
