Temple hoping to find weaknesses in talented, top-seeded Indiana in NCAA tournament matchup

Temple coach Fran Dunphy can't find any weaknesses in Indiana. He'd better hope his players can.

The Owls face a daunting task Sunday when they face the top-seeded Hoosiers in the NCAA tournament, with the winner advancing to the round of 16. With an abundance of size, speed and depth, Indiana is a nightmare matchup for any team, and Dunphy is concerned the Big Ten power might be too much for his squad to handle.

That doesn't mean Temple will back down, not with guard Khalif Wyatt. The Atlantic 10's player of the year scored 31 points in an opening win over North Carolina State despite playing with an injured left thumb. Wyatt says his thumb is sore, but he doesn't expect it to slow him against the Hoosiers.
