PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Temple’s Fran Dunphy has the longest losing streak of any coach in the history of the NCAA tournament.

Dunphy has lost 11 straight tournament games dating back to his time coaching Penn. He is 0-3 with the Owls. Dunphy’s lone win with the Quakers came in 1994.

Dunphy’s NCAA tournament record is 1-12 and his .077 winning percentage is the all-time worst for a coach with at least eight games coached, according to STATS LLC.

He gets a chance to snap the skid this week. The seventh-seeded Owls (25-7) play 10th-seeded Penn State (19-14) Thursday in Tucson, Ariz., in the West Region.
