Quaker Meeting House (QMH) remembered being hesitant as he entered the office of Northwestern men's basketball coach Bill Carmody in the summer of 2005 to tell him he was taking a new job.The new job was a step up, of course. The winner of the contest will earn a share of the Big 5 title, the Quakers' win over Villanova on December 11 opening the door for them but also for the Owls who can finish 3-1 in city play. Nothing new, of course: Temple has won 11 in a row over the Quakers after Penn's Dunphy-recruited team dramatically knocked off their former mentor in his first game back at The Palestra as the Owls' head coach in 2007.Ah, but then there is that one win.It came in the 2010 NCAA Tournament. Mentee finally bested mentor, 78-65, the first step on Cornell's march to the Sweet Sixteen that year.This, of course, provided fodder for the anti-Dunphy crowd out thereoh yes, it existswho said he can never win in the NCAA Tournament.
