The team will play on Saturday, facing the victor of Sunday's game between Auburn University and the University of Kentucky.

The top-seeded Cavaliers needed a last-ditch buzzer-beater to send the game in overtime, and then finally contained Edwards in the extra period to hang on for an 80-75 victory over Purdue in the South Region final.

Purdue star Carsen Edwards almost got the Boilermakers to the Final Four on his own, as he scored 42 points, 16 in the first half and 26 in the second.

Virginia outlasted Purdue in an instant classic on Saturday night to reach its first Final Four since 1984, and Cavaliers fans were ready to party. 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. Fellow Cavaliers guard Ty Jerome popped in 24 points. He made the first and missed the second, with Virginia's Mamadi Diakite tipping the ball all the way into the backcourt. Guy scored 25 points, including 21 in the second half.

The Boilermakers ended up taking the lead late on a insane banked-in 3-pointer from, you guess it, Carsen Edwards.

Purdue was seeking its first Final Four appearance since 1980. Diakite hit the buzzer-beater to tie the game.

The finish of Purdue-Virginia can be seen on TBS.
