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.
