Listen to post-game comments from Temple coach Fran Dunphy and players Dalton Pepper and Quenton…
It's likely the 6-foot-7 Dingle will miss the rest of the 2013-2014 season, a blow to a team that began the year with just 10 players, including walk-on Nick Pendergast.
After playing sparingly as a freshman, Dingle had played a significant role off the bench this year and had his best games recently. He averaged 6.7 points per game, though had scored 25 points and added nine assists and four blocks in the last two outings – including his second start of the year against LIU-Brooklyn on Dec. 21.
He was averaging 20.3 minutes, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game and was tied for the team lead with 11 blocks.
Dingle suffered the injury at Sunday's practice and he will have the surgery next week, according to a statement released by the University.
Dingle's injury will likely mean more time for freshman forward Mark Williams and possibly junior Jimmy McDonnell and sophomore center Devontae Watson. The 5-5 Owls open American Athletic Conference play tonight at Rutgers.
