The Navy Midshipmen will be playing at home against the Temple Owls at 8:30 p.m. ET on Friday at Alumni Hall. Navy might want some stickum for this contest since the team gave up 12 turnovers on Monday.
Navy had to start their season on the road , and it wasn't the start they were hoping for. They took a 59-48 hit to the loss column at the hands of the Fighting Camels. Navy found out winning isn't easy when your shooting is a whole 18.6% worse than the opposition.
Meanwhile, Temple gave their fans exactly what they wanted out of a home opener on Monday. They blew past the Hawks 85-65.
Temple got their victory on the backs of several key players, but it was Jahlil White out in front who dropped a double-double on 15 points and 14 rebounds. Zion Stanford was another key contributor, earning 14 points.
The opposite results left the teams with opposite records: the Fighting Camels' win pushed their record up to 1-0, while the Midshipmen's loss dropped theirs down to 0-1.
Navy is hoping to beat the odds on Friday, as the experts think they're headed for a loss. They finished last season with a 16-13 record against the spread.
Even though the experts think Navy isn't going to win this one, the team was an even 5-5 as the underdog last season.
