Fran Dunphy has been a basketball coach for several years at Pennsylvania and now Temple University. He has done well at both schools except when the NCAA Tournament rolls around.

He was often called “on-and-done-Dunphy.”

Not this year, thanks in part to Juan Fernandez shot an off-balance 18-footer with less than a second to play to give the Temple Owls a wild and wacky 66-64 win over Penn State in Tucson, Arizona.

The win ended a personal 11-game NCAA Tournament losing streak for Dunphy.

Fernandez and Ramone Moore each scored 23 points for the seventh-seeded Owls (26-7).

The 10th-seeded Nittany Lions (19-15), playing in their first NCAA Tournament since 2001, were led by Talor Battle with 23 points.
