Juan Fernandez Buzzer-Beater To Push Temple Past Penn State

The Temple Owls and the Penn State Nittany Lions were tied at 64 with time running down in their West Regional game at the McKale Center in Tuscon, Arizona, thanks in part to a ridiculous three-pointer by the Nittany Lions' Talor Battle.

Temple took the ball back, called a time out to set up a play and. . .well, I'm not going to talk. You can see the whole ending sequence right here.

Great shot by Juan Fernandez to give the Owls the victory and knock Penn State out of the tournament in the opening round.

This year's tournament certainly has lived up to expectations so far, with three games. . .this one, Butler's victory over Old Dominion, and Morehead State's upset of Louisville. . .coming down to the last seconds of play.

This is what March Madness looks like, folks, and it doesn't look like the action is going to be slowing down any time soon.
