NCAA Tournament 2011 Scores And Results: No. 7 Temple Beats Buzzer And No. 10 Penn State

Holy cow. If you like dramatics then the 2011 NCAA Tournament is what you should be watching Thursday. For the third time in just four games, a late-second shot has helped a team advance to the third round.

This time, Temple junior guard Juan Fernandez sank a 2-point jumper with 0.4 seconds remaining to propel the No. 7-seeded Owls past No. 10 Penn State, 66-64. Frenandez, who finished with a team-best 23 points, answered a 3-ball from the Nitty Lions' Taylor Battle, who tied the game at 64-64 with about 16 second to go.
