Virginia Rallies Past Purdue, Advances To Final Four

(Louisville, KY)  —  Mamadi Diakite made a jumpshot to force overtime after an improbable play to help top-seed Virginia pick up an 80-75 win over three-seed Purdue in Louisville and a trip to the Final Four.  After Ty Jerome missed a free throw down two, the Cavaliers recovered the ball deep in their own end and raced up the floor to force the extra frame.  Kyle Guy led the Cavaliers with 25 points while Jerome added 24.  Virginia is going to its first Final Four since 1984.  Carsen Edwards led the Boilermakers with 42 points.  Purdue bows out at 26-and-10.
