On Thursday night, the NCAA tournament rolled on with four Sweet 16 games on the docket. Gonzaga punched its ticket to the Elite Eight after taking down Florida State in the first game of the night.

The second game, between Tennessee and Purdue may have been the game of the tournament thus far. The Boilermakers held an 18-point lead in the second half before the Volunteers stormed back to force overtime.

In the additional period, it was all Purdue en route to a 99-94 win.

Star point guard Carsen Edwards scored a game-high 29 points to lead the Boilermakers into the Elite Eight.

After crossing the 25-point threshold, Edwards became the first player since Steph Curry to have four-straight 25+-point game.

How did he react to the news? He was pretty stunned.

Check it out.

It's an incredibly honest reaction from one of the best guards in the country.

Edwards has been the player of the tournament thus far, averaging over 32 points per game over the first three contests.

The Boilermakers can now rest up and see who they'll take on in the Elite eight.

Purdue and the winner of the Virginia-Oregon game will battle it out for the right to a spot in the Final Four.
