Lewis Jackson and Robbie Hummel, two seniors in the dance for the fourth time,
both made a pair of free throws in the last 22.8 seconds Friday to lift Purdue
over Saint Mary's, 72-69.
The 10th-seeded Boilermakers (22-12) moved on to a Sunday game with either
Kansas or Detroit, which were playing later.
St. Mary's, ranked No. 24 and seeded seventh in the Midwest, took a 69-68 lead
on Jordan Page's three-pointer with 44 seconds left. The Gaels (27-6) didn't
hit another shot after that, with Page air-balling a three in between Jackson
and Hummel's free throws and Rob Jones missing one at the buzzer.
