For all of you Purdue fans watching at home - check your underwear. And, if your doctor says so, your blood pressure.
After leading by 17 in the second half, Purdue fell behind by two to Tennessee with two seconds left. Carsen Edwards got fouled shooting a three. He missed the first and made the last two to send it to overtime.
... Painter summed it up - "Our guys are resilient. They played hard... the key was we got a couple loose balls and rebounds and wound up winning the game."
We've been here before. Purduealways lose in the sweet 16. I remember Alexis and me watching Glenn Robinson and the Boilers losing in the 90s. We had to drive all over Orlando to find a bar that was airing the game. It wasn't like it is now. You could only watch out-of-market games at certain bars. We got lucky to find the game. We walked out half drunk and sorrowful.
Now we're in the elite eight. Purdue will play the winner of Virginia and Oregon, who are getting ready to tip off above where I'm sitting. It's time to get in the car and drive a long way and come back on Saturday. This is exhausting in a good way. Bye.
