Edwards’ 28 3s in 4 games a tournament record

ESPN

Carsen Edwards was not able to carry Purdue into the Final Four on Saturday night, as his third-seeded Boilermakers fell to No. 1 seed Virginia 80-75 in overtime of the NCAA South Regional final in Louisville, Kentucky.

He did, however, etch his name into the record books.

Edwards finished with 42 points and was 10-for-19 from beyond the arc, shattering the record for 3-pointers in an NCAA tournament. His 28 3s in four games bested the previous record of 27 by Michigan's Glen Rice in the 1989 tournament. Rice's record was achieved in six games.

"Just had a good rhythm, felt good for me, lot of shots I took felt good for me," Edwards said. "Just didn't turn out the way that we wanted it to, but for the most part it felt good."

Among the other notable achievements in Edwards' losing effort:

Edwards, who also scored 42 points against Villanova in the second round, became the first player with multiple 40-point games in a single NCAA tournament since Bo Kimble of Loyola Marymount in 1990.
