Purdue, Virginia Sent To Overtime On Miraculous Play

On Saturday evening, the Virginia Cavaliers and Purdue Boilermakers squared off in the South Regional Final with a berth in the Final Four on the line. Fitting, too, since Edwards scored the most points (139) through four NCAA Tournament game since 2000; Curry had the previous most with 128 points for Davidson. Virginia's Mamadi Diakite tipped the ball back to the other side of the court, but Kihei Clark was able to chase down the ball, then throw a flawless pass to Diakite with time left on the clock. Diakite hit an unbelievable buzzer-beater to send his Virginia team's Elite Eight game against Purdue to overtime.

Holding a 70-67 lead in the closing seconds, Purdue elected to foul to put Virginia on the line instead of allowing the Cavaliers to attempt a three. Guy scored 25 points, including 21 in the second half.

Virginia outscored Purdue 10-5 in overtime to win the South Region and earn a spot in the Final Four.

Edwards had been unstoppable until overtime, and although he connected on a jumper, he missed a late 3 and committed a turnover that ultimately led to Clark's game-sealing foul shots.
