PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Temple found a foreclosure sign on its new home before it ever had a chance to move in.

Again, the Owls were out of the Big East.

Unlike a decade ago, when the program was evicted from the Big East, the Owls split this time came because of the alignment shake-up that forced them into the American Athletic Conference. The conference may not be what Temple wanted, but it's still a move into the high-rent district of college hoops.

Coach Fran Dunphy made the Owls an NCAA tournament fixture by winning big non-conference games, then running wild over the Atlantic 10.

But now, it's time for twice-a-season meetings with Louisville, Connecticut and Memphis.

The Owls open the season Nov. 9 against Penn.
