Second Round – NCAA Tournament

Temple 66, Penn State 64

TUCSON, Ariz. – Junior guard Juan Fernandez proved he was the man the Owls wanted with the ball with the game on the line, sinking a jumper on the right side of the key with two-seconds left to give seventh-seeded Temple a thrilling 66-64 win over 10th-seeded Penn State, Thursday afternoon in the NCAA Tournament second round at the McKale Center. Fernandez had the hot hand all day for Temple, scoring a game-high tying and season-high 23 points to help advance the Owls in the tournament.

Temple, now 26-7 on the year, wins its first NCAA Tournament game since an 84-72 decision in 2001, ironically also over the Nittany Lions. Penn State makes an early exit in the tournament and finishes the season 19-15.

    It was interesting readying some of Kevin Anderson’s comments today as Richmond clearly felt slighted over the #12 seed. You will the A-10 tournament, win your last 9 games and that is your seed.

    But hey, if it causes them to play with a chip on your shoulder – Coach Mooney probably couldn’t ask for a better piece of incentive.
