PREVAILING winter weather conditions have forced the postponement of Friday's basketball game between Temple and visiting Detroit, part of the Chevrolet Gotham Classic series.

Poor weather conditions in the Midwest, combined with wind conditions in Philadelphia, prevented the Titans from being able to safely travel to Philadelphia for the game. The game will be rescheduled for a later date.

The Owls (9-2) will next play Monday, when they host Bowling Green at 2 p.m. at the Liacouras Center.

Fans are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to the game for Toys for Tots, and will receive a discounted ticket for as low as $5 for doing so.
