Temple didn't shoot particularly well from three point range, but its foul shooting was the difference in Wednesday's 79-70 victory over Fairleigh Dickinson at the Liacouras Center.
The Owls shot 4 of 19 from beyond the arc but were 26-29 from the foul line for a season-best 89.3 percent,.
"We need get to the line and need to shoot percentage we shot today," coach Fran Dunphy said.
That was a season-high free throw attempts. The previous high percentage was 88.9 percent when the Owls were 8 for 9 in a 74-69 loss to Butler.
Temple's previous high for attempts was when the Owls were 19 for 26 in a 75-70 win over Minnesota.
With a size advantage against FDU, Temple did its best to take it to the basket
Quenton DeCosey, who had a team-high 22 points, led the way by hitting all seven of his free throw attempts while Devin Coleman was 4 for 4.
"We have done a pretty good job the last few games getting to the line more than our opponents," Dunphy said.
That happened in the two recent home wins over Delaware and FDU.
Dunphy has said how the Owls have to be more aggressive going to the basket. This style will be tested during Saturday's game at Wisconsin. The Badgers (5-3) are allowing an average of 20 free throws per game.
"They don't foul much and we have to be careful not to put them on the line as well," said Dunphy, mindful that the Badgers are shooting 75 percent from the line. "They are very good."
