Purdue gets a 3 seed, will play Saint Peter's

Boilermakers stay close to home

At 6:27 p.m., Purdue's name popped up as the No. 3 seed in the Southwest Region in the NCAA tournament on CBS on Sunday.

The Boilermakers (25-7) will play Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference tournament champion Saint Peter's (20-13) on Friday in Chicago.

It will be the first time the schools have played.

If Purdue is able to win its 13th consecutive opening-round NCAA tournament game, it could face No. 6 seed Georgetown, an at-large bid out of the Big East.

A trip to San Antonio and the Sweet 16 could mean a matchup with second-seeded Notre Dame, which also plays its early rounds in Chicago.
