Temple's Michael Eric (knee) out for year
Eric was injured at Tuesday's practice. The Owls (No. 25 ESPN/USA Today, No. 23 AP) made the announcement before Thursday's home game against Richmond.
"That's pretty devastating for a young guy," Temple coach Fran Dunphy said. "You don't worry about the team. The team has this resiliency about them. You worry about the kid."
Eric was second on the team in rebounding (5.9) and blocked shots (1.6) and averaged 7.1 points a game.
