Virginia trailed early against Oregon, much like it did against Gardner-Webb in the First Round. The Cavaliers, much like they also did in that game against Gardner-Webb, made a run at the end of the first half, this time to take the lead and extend it. That set the tone for the second.
The Cavs didn’t win the second half against Oregon but protected an 8-point lead to win by four. Sure, Oregon covered but Virginia is in the Elite Eight with a chance to advance to its first Final Four since 1984.
That was the first season after Ralph Samson, a gritty team led by Othell Wilson and Rick Carlisle that entered the NCAA Tournament with the most losses of any team in the field. This is a more decorated regular season team but one that plays a similar brand of basketball.
Tony Bennett will throw the kitchen sink at Carsen Edwards in an attempt to slow down Purdue’s scoring menace.
Edwards had 29 points in Purdue’s 99–94 overtime victory over Tennessee, ending Admiral Schofield and Grant Williams’ National Title hopes (Williams is a junior and will likely be back next season).
But the real big performance came from Ryan Cline, who scored 27 to flank Edwards and propel Purdue to the round that has eluded it three times in Matt Painter’s tenure.
Virginia plays a packline defense and forces the opponent to hit tough shots from the outside. Edwards has the range but so does Cline, who is likely to get the better looks of the two. His outside shooting is the key to Purdue loosening up the Cavaliers’ defense.

Free Purdue Boilermakers vs. Virginia Cavaliers NCAAB Prediction: Purdue by a few.
Both defenses are so good and so smart. I don’t see either offense really getting an inch in this game. But Purdue has the most gifted scorer on the floor and that should make the difference. Edwards looks like an automatic 20 points and I just can’t say the same for any Cavalier.
