Upset Alert: No. 2 Purdue Is In A Tight one At Halftime

Day 4 of the 2018 NCAA Tournament has tipped off. An upset is brewing.

No. 2 seed Purdue is taking on No. 10 seed Butler. The high-seeded Boilermakers are without star big man Isaac Haas.

Haas broke his elbow in the opening-round victory on Friday. He wanted to play today, but the brace he had to wear wasn't cleared by the NCAA.

Purdue appears to be in some trouble without him. The contest is tight.

The Boilermakers are up, 40-36, after 20 minutes of play. It looks like this one is going to go down to the wire. Purdue needed a big run at the end of the first half to take the lead.

The winner of this game advances to the Sweet 16. Texas Tech awaits.

The official game time and TV channel for the Sweet 16 contest will be out later today.

Purdue and Butler are playing on CBS.
