One of Temple's early-season bright spots during the first few weeks of the college basketball season has been the Owls ability to take care of the ball.

Temple improved to 2-3 with Sunday's 69-50 win over visiting Delaware after committing a season-low five turnovers.

In the past three games, which included matchups against then-ranked Butler and Utah, the Owls have committed a total of 18 turnovers.

For the season the Owls are averaging 7.2 turnovers.

"I like how we are taking care of the ball," Temple coach Fran Dunphy said. "It is certainly one of the positives."

While point guard Josh Brown has shot just 30.6 percent from the field, he has been a main reason for the low turnover total. Brown has 20 assists and just four turnovers.

"I like his assist to turnover numbers," Dunphy said. "Josh is still learning that position and trying to get better as a decision maker."

Brown has averaged a team-high 31.8 minutes, with the main reason being his 5-to-1 assist-to-turnover ratio.
