Penn State's Battle tied the game 64-64 with a long 3-pointer with 11.4 seconds remaining. But, following a timeout, Fernandez brought the ball up the floor, pivoted and ducked under PSU's Tim Frazier to make the game-winner with less than a second left.
"He made a great shot," Frazier said. "He drove, picked up the ball … pivoted a couple of times and and then stepped through. It was a great shot."
The loss ended State's first NCAA Tournament appearance in a decade after one game. The Lions finished the season at 19-15.
Temple improved to 26-7.
