TUCSON, Ariz. -- Don't call him "one-and-Dunphy" anymore.Juan Fernandez sank an off-balance 18-footer with less than a second to play to hand Temple a wild 66-64 victory over Penn State and end coach Fran Dunphy's NCAA tournament record 11-game losing streak."It might have been our time, that's all," Dunphy said. "Just our time."
• Juan Fernandez hit an 18-foot leaner with 0.4 remaining to break a 62-62 tie and give Temple its first tournament win since 2001 (also vs. Penn State).
• The win snapped Fran Dunphy's NCAA tournament record 11-game losing streak. Dunphy improves to 2-12 all-time in the tournament.
• Fernandez and Ramone Moore each had 23 points to lead the Owls. It was a season-high for Fernandez, who was coming off a 3-for-17 performance against Richmond in the A-10 tournament.
• Talor Battle had 23 to lead Penn State, including a deep 3 to tie the game with 16 seconds to go. The margin stayed within four points for the entire second half.
