Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork. Marlon Brown Jersey .com) - The Kansas Jayhawks play their last non-conference road game of the regular season on Monday, as they travel to the City of Brotherly Love to take on the Temple Owls at the Wells Fargo Center. Bill Selfs Jayhawks have just one loss on their resume and that came in humbling fashion to top-ranked Kentucky (72-40) back on Nov. 18. Since then however, Kansas has reeled off eight straight wins and moved to 9-1 on the season with Saturdays 96-69 rout of Lafayette. Fran Dunphys Owls are 7-4 on the season, but have won three of their last four games to provide some stability as the calendar year closes. Temple posted a lopsided win at Delaware in its last outing (82-62) and newly eligible players like senior Jesse Morgan and junior Devin Coleman played big roles in the win. Kansas has won the last three meetings with Temple to take an 8-3 series lead. The Jayhawks held on for a win last year in Lawrence against the Owls, 69-62. The Jayhawks put on an offensive clinic in blowing by Lafayette this past weekend, as the team shot a cool .500 from the floor, including an impressive .522 from behind the arc (12-of-23). Five players notched double figures in the win, but no one had as good as game as Kelly Oubre Jr. In just his second start of the year, the freshman guard erupted for his first double-double, finishing with 23 points and 10 rebounds. Frank Mason III put up 14 points and just missed his own double-double with nine assists. Wayne Selden Jr. added 12 points, followed by Svi Mykhailiuk (11 pts), Jamari Traylor (11 pts) and Cliff Alexander (10 pts). The offensive proficiency is a bit of an anomaly for Kansas, which has modest numbers at that end of the floor on the season. The Jayhawks enter this contest averaging 72.0 ppg on .426 shooting. The team does however, hold a strong +7.2 rebounding margin. Perry Ellis is tops on the team in both scoring and rebounding, averaging 13.3 points and 6.6 rebounds per outing. Mason is next in line at 10.9 ppg. Selden isnt in double digits at this time, but is eager to join at 9.4 ppg. Temple is also coming off a rather strong offensive showing, as the Owls used 16 3-pointers to make light work of the Blue Hens last week. Morgan tied for team-high honors with Quenton DeCosey, as the pair put up 16 points apiece. Will Cummings was instrumental in the win as well, recording a double-double with 11 points and 10 assists. Coleman added nine points in 10 minutes of work off the bench. Long known for strong defensive play, Temple has exemplified some of those attributes this season. The Owls are allowing 62.9 ppg and holding foes under 40 percent shooting (.391). The 3-point barrage against Delaware however, has not been the norm for Temple, which still shoots under 30 percent from long range on the year (.295). Morgan sits atop the stats page in scoring but has played just the one game. Consistent contributors though have been DeCosey and Cummings, who are netting 14.8 and 14.5 ppg, respectively.

A spokeswoman for the NLRB says its "a very incremental move" and does not necessarily indicate the board is close to a finding in the case. NFL owners filed an unfair labour charge against the players union in February, arguing that the union was not negotiating a new collective bargaining agreement in good faith.HOUSTON - The Texans have already tripled their win total from last years 2-14 season and the rest of their schedule includes two games against the 2-10 Jaguars.Yes, the playoffs are being discussed in Houston.Youve got to treat it week to week and focus on each game individually, but as of right now every single game is a playoff, centre Chris Myers said. Thats the way it is. Weve got to be able to win every single game and other things will take care of themselves.Myers said it would be silly to say that dont think about the possibility of making the post-season for the third time in franchise history.The playoffs are always on your mind, Myers said. Thats the overall goal in the NFL is to make the playoffs and get to that big game.Houstons 45-21 win over Tennessee on Sunday got the Texans to 6-6 and leaves them second in the AFC South division behind the Colts (8-4). The Texans travel to Jacksonville on Sunday and end the regular-season at home against the Jaguars. They also travel to Indianapolis and host the Ravens in their last four games.But first they have to deal with the Jaguars, who rallied from a 21-point deficit on Sunday for a win over the Giants. After seeing what they did last week, theres no way the Texans will be looking past Jacksonville.I dont care what their record is, Houston coach Bill OBrien said. This team is a talented team, well coached. I have a lot of respect for Gus Bradley and the way he coaches, the energy that he brings to their team. Theyre playing very hard.The Texans scored the most points in franchise history last week as quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick returned to the starting lineup to throw a career-high and franchise-record six touchdown passes. His performance came after two weeks on the bench and earned the veteran AFC offensive player of the week honours. Its the first time a Houston player has won the honour on offence since Matt Schaub in 2012.This week, theyll look to repeat that performance and try to win consecutive games for the first time since the first two weeks of the season.Its been an inconsiistent year in terms of overall performance and being able to move the ball on a consistent basis, Myers said. Jermaine Lewis Jersey. But when were on were on and were pretty strong. As long as we can keep building on it and keep growing as an offence and building that cohesiveness I think were going to be all right.Houstons success against the Titans was helped by a defence that is tied for second in the NFL with a plus-11 turnover margin. Linebacker Brian Cushing said a variety of things factor in to forcing turnovers.I just think its aggressive play, good play calling and guys really having an emphasis of getting the ball back for our offence, Cushing said. I think those things combined have helped things turn out well for us.Houston had three interceptions on Sunday and J.J. Watt forced and recovered a fumble for another turnover. He likes that so many different people have been getting in on the turnover action.I think its one of those things that is contagious, guys making plays at all different positions, Watt said. Its pretty neat when everyone gets involved. I think one of the most fun parts about it is that you never know where its going to come from.The group could get a boost this week with the return of starting cornerback Kareem Jackson, who missed the last three games with a knee injury.He was out there (Wednesday) and he looked OK, OBrien said.He said his chances of playing Sunday are looking better but that hes still day to day.NOTES: Top overall pick Jadeveon Clowney visited Dr. James Andrews in Pensacola, Florida on Wednesday to have his surgically repaired right knee evaluated. OBrien said when he returns to Houston team officials and doctors will meet to discuss the findings and determine what the next step is for the outside linebacker. Clowney was injured in Week 1 and had arthroscopic surgery on Sept. 8. He has played three games since then, but has never completely recovered from the procedure and said last week that hes still in a lot of pain.___Online:AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL ' ' '
