Enechionyia has knocked down 30 three-point baskets in 10 games while Alston boasts a 4.6 assist-to-turnover ratio.

About Villanova: With a win, the Wildcats can extend two Big Five records they currently own – most consecutive City Series wins (now at 17) and most city titles in succession (now at three). . . . They also will set a program record with their 17th straight overall win. . . . Brunson suffered an ankle injury in the first half against Notre Dame and was limited in the second half, but Wright said "I think he'll play" against Temple. . . . Guard Phil Booth is expected to miss his eighth straight game with left knee swelling. . . .
