[b]John Chaney, rumored to be on the outs after a hectic 2005-06 season, still has appeal for a trio of recruits who gave verbals this week for next year. [b]Combo Forward Mike Scott, PG Luis Guzman and PF Matt Shaw[/b] are slated to sign LOIs next month and become the next generation of Owls. Scott is an undersized PF who uses athleticism and hustle to make up for a lack of height and bulk and has fairly consistent shot that will be key developing as a wing. Guzman is your typical Temple PG, a great ballhandler, floor general and perimeter defender. Unlike previous Temple lead guards - Pepe Sanchez and Rick Brunson come to mind - Guzman is a fairly accurate shooter. Shaw is yet another SoCal big man who will flee the Golden State and travel east. He is a large body who will fill space, block out and has a few inside moves to boot. [/b]

In a preview to this week’s A-10 update on Friday, at least one national sportswriter is touting Temple’s Mardy Collins as the best collegiate PG in 2005-06 and another is showering praise on PF Steven Smith of LaSalle. And, as already posted, CHN named Withers to their 2005 All American team.
