BIGGEST LOSER (28Dec): St. Johns's and Temple both fell below the cut line with inexplicable home losses. In Temple's case, the opponent (Tulane) was a head-scratcher; for St. John's, the margin of defeat against Providence was unexpected. None of that will matter if Shamorie Ponds' knee injury is serious.

BIGGEST WINNER (28Dec): Houston moved into the bracket for the first time by cruising past South Florida in Tampa. Cougars will need to beat Temple on Saturday to hold their spot in next Thursday's update.

Duke haters beware. Almost no way the Blue Devils fall off the top line even with loss at B.C. Villanova likely No. 1 overall in next bracket if it finishes off Philly sweep of La Salle and Temple.

As an assistant, David Padgett turned Anas Mahmoud into a versatile big man with a motor. That's his protégé. And that's whom he should tag as the motivational leader this program needs. Proved he deserved the role in that second-half comeback.

That's a good win for Temple and Fran Dunphy, who could make some noise in the American race this season. Shizz Alston Jr. and Co. outplayed a Badgers team that missed an opportunity to steal a solid road win, a win the Badgers needed.

Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer 

Can't overstate the significance of this game for Wisconsin (No. 6 in strength of schedule, per BPI), which has a resume that's featured impressive challenges but no impressive wins. A road win at a top-50ish Temple would help. If the Badgers lose, they'll be searching for every meaningful win in a lukewarm Big Ten. No real test until their road game at Purdue on Jan. 16.

I disagree with the Flagrant 1 that was called on Brevin Pritzl for an inadvertent elbow against Josh Brown in this Temple-Wisconsin game. Yes, he hit him with an elbow but no malice. Just a guy trying to get around a defender. Pivotal call. Not sure this crew got it right.

Yuta Watanabe and Jair Bolden scored 17 points each, fellow starters Patrick Steeves and Arnaldo Toro combined for 20 more and George Washington fended off a late-charging Temple in a 70-67 upset Sunday.
