You might remember the last time these two teams played...

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-South Regional-Purdue vs Virginia Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Big news dropped this morning about one of UVa’s non-conference games next season: As part of the annual ACC/Big Ten challenge, the DEFENDING NATIONAL CHAMPION WAHOOS will travel to Indiana to take on the Purdue Boilermakers!

When was the last time Virginia faced Purdue? Hmm...I seem to recall it was pretty recent.

Oh - that’s right!

It was in this year’s Elite Eight game!

One more time, with music, please:

Purdue fans surely will be happy to welcome Mamadi Diakite to their home arena - as the senior recently announced his return to the team for next season. UVa fans, on the other hand, will be delighted to know that Carsen Edwards and his 42 points will not be making an appearance on the court.
