The Connecticut Huskies and the Temple Owls will both be gunning for a victory on Sunday when they meet at Liacouras Center.

ABOUT CONNECTICUT (13-12, 8-5 American Athletic): During its 6-1 run, UConn has given up 68 points or less in all six victories as the team has moved into the top 40 nationally in points allowed (65.5). Adams is shooting just over 55 percent over the last three games while averaging 17 points and 7.7 assists during that stretch. Rodney Purvis has registered double-digit points in seven straight games but is just 9-of-25 from the floor over the last two outings.

ABOUT TEMPLE (14-13, 5-9): The Owls’ top two scorers – Shizz Alston Jr. and Obi Enechionyia – combined for 13 points on 4-of-14 shooting versus East Carolina, while the other three starters weren’t much better with a collective 12-of-33 connection rate. After scoring 10 points total in his previous three games, Mark Williams erupted for 15 and made multiple 3-pointers for the first time since making two against UConn last month. Enechionyia was 3-of-17 from the field against the Huskies in that contest as the Owls struggled from the field (35.9 percent), the arc (10-of-34) and the foul line (3-of-8) in the 73-59 defeat.

Oddsmakers currently have the Owls listed as 2-point favorites versus the Huskies, while the game’s total is sitting at 134.

Connecticut is surging toward respectability, but it’s been a long road to this point for the Huskies, who visit Temple on Sunday in American Athletic Conference action. The Huskies have rebounded from a 7-11 start to win six of their last seven, and they’ll be aiming to defeat the Owls for the second time this season.

UConn’s last two wins have come by three points apiece, including a comeback win against Memphis on Thursday in which the team overcame a 17-point first-half deficit. Jalen Adams, who missed practice all week with an illness, scored 17 of his 19 points in the second half to earn the win – and the praise of coach Kevin Ollie. “For Jalen to come out and not practice and be a little winded and fight through it, it means a lot to our team,” said Ollie, whose squad is above .500 for the first time all season. Temple had won three of four before a 14-point loss at East Carolina in which all of the Owls’ key players struggled from the field.
