Youth to be served in UConn/Temple game

Usually whenever there is any conversation about year two of the American Athletic Conference the talk focused on the lack of competition UConn has faced this season.

The criticisms are well deserved as six of UConn's first AAC games have been decided by more than 50 points and the smallest margin of victory was the 34-point Huskies' win the last time they played Temple.

With all of that being said, if there is a silver lining it is the strong play of the freshmen in the AAC this season. A total of seven freshmen are averaging more than 10 points per game this season and two of the conference's most productive group of newcomers square off in tomorrow's UConn/Temple game.

The Owls are the only team with two freshmen averaging more than 10 points per game and below is the breakdown of top totals by the freshman classes (not including Saturday's games).
