Temple wants to win one final Atlantic 10 championship before bolting next season for Big East

Temple is ready for its final season in the Atlantic 10.

The Owls are headed toward a new era in hoops when they leave the conference they've called home since 1982 and move to the Big East.

They'd like to put one final A-10 trophy in the case before they leave the conference. No program has dominated the A-10 like the Owls. They made the NCAA tournament 12 times under Hall of Fame coach John Chaney and have five straight appearances with coach Fran Dunphy.

The Owls won a record nine Atlantic 10 tournament championships and won the outright regular-season title a year ago for the first time since 1989-90.

The Owls went 24-8 overall and 13-3 in the Atlantic 10 last season.
