Christ even my alma matter Stonehill beat them 70-59 in late January and we’ve only been D1 for a hot minute.Fucking awesome - that’s a bigger upset imo than UMBC. FD didn’t even win its conference or conference tourney.
Edit: their last regular season game they lost to freaking Merrimack
it’s almost like guard play matters!Purdue has lost to a 13, 15, and 16 in the last 3 years. Um.
My OCD is kicking in to hyperdrive. Really need him to lose to a 14 seed next season.it’s almost like guard play matters!
Double-digit seed losses by Purdue under Matt Painter:
16 seed (2023)
15 seed (2022)
13 seed (2021)
12 seed (2016)
11 seed (2011)
Yeah this is the key. It's possible, before the play-in games, that UMBC would have been a 15 (often America East is). But when you take two 16s and move them to a playoff, one 15 moves to a 16.And they had to win a First Four play-in.
