marchmadness_logoThe competition to determine the CATS next victim was a low-scoring nip and tuck affair

between the 8 seed Cincinnati Bearcats and the 9 seed Purdue Boilermakers that had to go an extra

period to be decided. Neither team could gain a foothold throughout the game as points were a

premium and the largest lead by either team was 7. Purdue led 29 to 26 at the half, and Cincy put up 33

points in the second half to Purdue’s 30. Troy Caupain made a layup at the buzzer to send the game to

overtime at 59 – 59. Cincinnati outscored Purdue 7 to 6 in the overtime to post the final margin.
