Cincinnati and Purdue must really want to lose to Kentucky.
Up seven points with just 39 seconds remaining, the eight-seed Boilermakers seemed well on their way to advancing to the Round of 32 in the Midwest region.
But that all changed in a matter of two seconds. That's how long it took the Bearcats' Kevin Johnson to dart down the floor and hit a three after a pair of Jon Octeus free throws for Purdue.
Cincinnati guard Troy Caupain took it from there.
The sophomore point guard stole the Purdue inbound pass and finished a traditional three-point play.
Three Purdue free throws and a Bearcats layup later, Caupain found his team down two with seven seconds left.
Cincinnati outscored Purdue 7-6 in an ungly overtime period, crawling away with 66-65 victory.
Big man A.J. Hammons led the way for the Boilermakers, scoring 17 points on 7-of-10 shooting and grabbing 10 boards.
Caupain finished with 10 points, 4 assists, and 2 steals.
Bearcats head coach Mick Cronin, who's been away from the team recovering from an unruptured aneurysm since December, liked what he saw.
