PHILADELPHIA -- Awaiting an expected lengthy suspension, Mike Davis figures his team already is paying for his tirade.
"I'll take the blame for this loss," Davis said Saturday after the No. 10 Hoosiers' 71-64 loss to Temple. "I took a pretty good basketball team and screwed them up the last two weeks."
The Indiana coach is expected to be suspended Monday by the Big Ten Conference for charging onto the court and confronting an official in the final second of a loss to Kentucky on Dec. 21.
Davis is waiting for the Big Ten to make a decision.
"I wish they would just come down and say something," Davis said. "Then we can move on."
Alex Wesby and Maurice Collins each hit two free throws in the final 21 seconds to win it for the Owls (2-6). Indiana (8-2) has lost two in a row after winning its first eight.
Wesby finished with 26 points, Collins added 16, and Antywane Robinson had a career-high 13 rebounds for the Owls.
