Temple is coming off a 16-16 record and first-round American Athletic Conference tournament exit in the 2016-17 season.
Temple ended the 2016-17 season with its first NCAA tournament appearance since 2011. But senior guard Alliya Butts, who averaged 15.5 points per game last season, will miss this year with a torn ACL.
Junior forward Obi Enechionyia is the only returning player who averaged more than 10 points per game last season.
The sophomore center is fully recovered from the right meniscus he tore as a high school senior.
Senior guard Josh Brown is making his way back to the court after surgery on his Achilles tendon.
ESPN.com rated both players as three-star recruits coming out of high school.
By becoming closer to one another, the players hope to develop on-court chemistry.
