This was a night the Huskies men's basketball team may wish to forget.
Not only did UConn fall on the road to the Temple Owls 81-63, but they may have lost star guard Jalen Adams for some time after he suffered an apparent leg injury in the first half.
Going after a loose ball, Adams leg got caught under an Owls player, and he was in serious pain on the hardwood. He needed help off the floor, as he limped his way to the locker room. He finished the night with two points.
With Adams out, it was Josh Carlton (18 points, 13 rebounds) and Christian Vital (18 points, 13 rebounds, five assists) who picked up the slack. However, it wasn't enough to overcome the early lead the Owls built in the first half.
Five Temple players finished with double-digit points, including Shizz Alston Jr. who led the team with 18. Nate Pierre-Louis had 17 points as well.
The loss pushes UConn to 13-10 overall on the season, while the Owls are now 17-6. >> Box Score
