Virginia Fans Celebrate Overtime Win Over Purdue in Streets of Charlottesville

Carsen Edwards after his 42-point game against Villanova led Purdue to the Sweet 16

The Cavaliers needed to be rescued after Purdue's Carsen Edwards dropped a ridiculous 42 points with 10 3-pointers.

Coach Tony Bennett's squad wrote their way into University of Virginia history on Saturday night with an overtime thriller against Purdue University, winning 80-75. The all-time record for threes in a game is 11, set by Loyola Marymount's Jeff Fryer in 1990. Fitting, too, since Edwards scored the most points (139) through four NCAA Tournament game since 2000; Curry had the previous most with 128 points for Davidson. After Jerome converted the first free throw to slash the margin to two, the veteran guard missed the second, setting off a wild chain of events.

Virginia sent the game into overtime with a buzzer beater to end the first half.

Nicolas Cage seeks marriage annulment, four days after getting married
In June 2016, PEOPLE confirmed the two had separated in January of that year after 12 years of marriage. Cage, 55, who married for the fourth time last Saturday (March 23), could have acted in drunken haste.

Holding a 70-67 lead in the closing seconds, Purdue elected to foul to put Virginia on the line instead of allowing the Cavaliers to attempt a three. Matt Mooney also hit for 17, including two foul shots with 19.7 seconds left that gave the Red Raiders a four-point lead. But he came out from the break and hit back-to-back 3s and finished with 25 points - 21 after halftime - and 10 rebounds.

He had done so very much, bringing Purdue to the cusp of the Final Four, just seconds from a trip to Minneapolis, and now, Edwards sat at his locker and sounded, well, grateful. It wasn't easy but they didn't flinch as Edwards made 3s with regularity.
