A pattern had developed over the course of Temple’s first four District 12-6A games — loss, win, loss, win — leaving it in the middle of the pack a couple weeks into the league race. With a chance Tuesday night to change the direction a bit, the trend instead continued in particularly frustrating fashion for the homestanding Tem-Cats.

Ellison weathered Temple’s sizable run that bridged the first and second quarters, increased its defensive pressure and pulled away in the second half for a 52-34 victory at Wildcat Gym.
