Virginia, Purdue Show Great Sportsmanship After Epic Game

Kyle Guy for Virginia takes on Purdue.

Virginia and Purdue played the game of the NCAA Tournament tonight, with the No. 1-seeded Cavaliers escaping the No. 3-seeded Boilermakers in overtime in the Elite Eight.

UVA, for the first time under head coach Tony Bennett, has advanced to the Final Four - one year after losing to a No. 16 seed.

The player of the night, though, was Carsen Edwards.

Purdue's star guard had the game of the NCAA Tournament (or the decade), scoring 42 points and setting a tourney record for 3-pointers made.

After the game, Edwards and Mamadi Diakite (who made the crazy game-tying shot that forced overtime) shared a great moment.

Well done, guys.

Virginia, meanwhile, has advanced to the Final Four, where it'll play either Kentucky or Auburn.

The Wildcats and the Tigers are set to play on Sunday afternoon.
