Weekend news


Welcome back to the school week. That would be sarcasm.

Not too much happening over the weekend, with the big story being the b-ball team's 75-67 OT win against rival Saint Joseph's at the Palestra. The game was an absolute barn burner, and we'll have a full recap up shortly.

While we're at it, might as well make mention of the rest of the sports as well:

The women's b-ball team lost at Dayton by a score of 71-63. Dayton took over sole possession of 2nd place in the A-10 with the win.

The baseball team did not start the season off right as they were swept by Florida Gulf Coast (the college, not the geographical feature) in a three game series this weekend. The Owls were outscored 7-39 over the three games. That's what you would call ugly.

However, the track team helped save the weekend for Temple sports with a third place finish in A-10 indoor competition, their best finish EVER.

Also, peep this article on fencing coach Nikki Franke, who just reached 600 friggin' wins in her coaching career at Temple, which dates back to 1972. You know, when we were all still tadpoles.

Speaking of tadpoles, check out this article about in vitro fertilization that quotes Temple geneticist Carmen Sapienza. To sum up the article in one sentence: "in vitro babies are genetically different, but we don't know if that necessarily means they aren't healthy." Oh, ok thanks.

In other, non sports news, Temple got a little shout-out by Inky writer and Temple alum Solomon Jones in his article defending Philly, who was rated the 20th most miserable city by Forbes.com. Well Mr. Forbes, obviously you haven't partied at TU or Old City.

Temple professor Allen Hornblum had a nice little sigh of relief over the weekend after an NJ appellate court judge ruled that libel charges brought against him were correctly thrown out. The charges were filed by Philly crime-dude John Berkery after Hornblum wrote a book about crime in Philly. If you see Hornblum around, give him a pat on the back. Just don't sneak up on him.

That's about all for the weekend news, we'll catch ya in the a.m.
