Purdue gets No. 4 seed, Liberty

Purdue knew it was in the NCAA tournament when the selection show started Monday. It just had to wait to find out where it was seeded and who it would play.

The Boilermakers (24-8), who won the Big Ten's automatic bid by winning the conference tournament last week, ended up as a No. 4 seed in the Oklahoma City Regional.

Purdue will begin play in the tournament against No. 13 seed Liberty on Sunday at 12:10 p.m.

The Boilermakers are making their 23rd appearance in the NCAA tournament and have earned a spot in the tourney 19 times in the last 20 years.

Last year, Purdue was a No. 4 seed in the tournament. The Boilermakers defeated No. 13 seed South Dakota State 83-68 in the first round before losing to No. 5 seed South Carolina 72-61 in the second round.
