Senior Dalton Pepper
, along with juniors Will Cummings
and Anthony Lee
, have been named captains of the 2013-14 Temple University
men's basketball team, announced head coach Fran Dunphy
Cummings and Lee are the only returning starters from last season's team that posted a 24-10 record while advancing to the third round of the NCAA Tournament. Pepper, who transferred to Temple from West Virginia following his sophomore season (2010-11), is the squad's lone senior.
"A number of different things that go into the process of selecting captains, the quality of the individuals, how long they have been around," said Dunphy. "As for Dalton, Will and Anthony, they are just fine young men who understand what it is we, as a coaching staff, want to get across. So it was an easy selection."
The trio will next take the court at the Charleston Classic where the Owls take on the Clemson Tigers Thursday at 8:00 p.m (ESPN3/1210 AM WPHT).
