Are Baylor, Purdue headed for rematch?
Yep, the Purdue Boilermakers, 90-79.
They'll meet again on Sunday with the South Region title and a berth in the Final Four on the line if No. 3 Baylor gets past No. 10 Saint Mary's and No. 4 Purdue upsets No. 1 Duke tonight at Houston's Reliant Stadium.
While both rosters have changed, many of this season's key players for both teams played in the 2008 game, including Tweety Carter, LaceDarius Dunn and Josh Lomers for the Bears.
Injured Purdue star Robbie Hummel didn't play a major role in that game, scoring nine points in 17 minutes. But, Chris Kramer, the hero in last week's second-round win over Texas A&M, E'Twaun Moore and JaJuan Johnson combined for 36 points.
The Boilermakers blew the 2008 game open in the first half on 50 percent shooting while knocking six 3-pointers to lead 46-27 at halftime.
