2019 ACC/Big Ten Challenge: #5/#2 Virginia at Purdue Preview

It’s too soon.

March 30th still feels like it happened a second ago. Two blinks ago Purdue was going to their first Final Four under Coach Painter, and then the entire series of calamities occurred within that next breath. Ryan Cline missed the free throw. So did Virginia. The ball was tipped all the way to half-court, retrieved by Ty Jerome, and then thrown forward to Mamadi Diakite who had just enough time to lift a floater just over Matt Haarms and send the Elite Eight Game into overtime where Virginia would edge Purdue, 80-75.
