After knocking off No. 2 Kentucky and No. 7 Murray State to become the third No

15 seed to reach the Sweet 16, the Peacocks pulled off another upset by stunning No. 3 Purdue 67-64.

That makes Saint Peter's the first No. 15 seed to reach the Elite Eight and continues one of the most engrossing

and unforeseen postseason runs in men's NCAA Tournament history.

The Peacocks were led by guard Daryl Banks III, who had 14 points. Forward Clarence Rupert had 11 points and guard Doug Edert scored 10 points off the bench.

Purdue forward Trevion Williams scored a game-high 16 points

but star guard Jaden Ivey had only 9 points on 4-of-12 shooting.
