BROWNING’S BULLETS: "We did a really good job today of not letting yesterday affect us. Yesterday was a tough loss, but we were able to bounce back. Temple is a very good team. They didn't have a full lineup but they are still very good. Great overall team effort once again.”



LOOK AHEAD: The Colonials will hit the road for the first time this spring when they travel to Morgantown, W.V., to face West Virginia on Feb. 10 at 1 p.m.
