Tigers Need OT to Avoid Upset
FedExForum– Shaq Goodwin scored 18 of his 20 in the second half which included six dunks, and fellow big man Austin Nichols stuffed the stat sheet with 17 points, 12 rebounds and 7 blocks as the Tigers held off Temple, in overtime, 82-79.
Looking for their second Top 25 upset, in the past week, the Owls rallied from 11 down to force OT thanks to 11 3′s against the Tigers. But after struggling at the free throw line, all night, Michael Dixon calmly stepped up and hit two late to help the U of M avoid the upset.
The Tigers improve to 21-6, 10-4 in the AAC, leaving just four games to go in the regular season.
