Purdue is not done in this year’s NCAA Tournament just yet!

Entering the Elite 8, the Boilermakers had been rolling through all challengers to begin March Madness. Tennessee finally posed a worthy threat, but Purdue was up to the challenge!

The game turned into an instant classic between the Boilermakers and Vols with Dalton Knecht and Zach Edey delivering a showdown for the ages. Both players would score 37+ points, but it was Edey who set a new career-high with 40 points and added 16 rebounds and a block of Knecht inside the final minute to help seal the win.

Purdue needed every bit of Edey’s output with Purdue shooting 3-for-15 from 3-point range and losing the points off of turnover battle. Fletcher Loyer did record 14 points, and Lance Jones hit a crucial 3-pointer with 2:43 remaining to give Purdue a 6-point cushion.

Now, the Boilermakers roll into the Final Four for the first time since 1980. It’s also the first for Matt Painter with the program, helping put some NCAA Tournament demons behind him in the process.
