5 of the most insane shots from Virginia vs. Purdue's Carsen Edwards

The Elite Eight matchup between Virginia and Purdue in Louisville, Kentucky, on Saturday night was perhaps the best game of the NCAA tournament so far.

Sure, Virginia pulled out the overtime win 80-75 to earn a Final Four berth. But there were plenty of crazy shots to go around — especially coming from Purdue’s Carsen Edwards.

Edwards dropped 42 points in the loss for the Boilermakers, and went off from behind the 3-point line — where he went 10-of-19. He was seemingly unstoppable.

So, thankfully, we’ve picked out five of the best, most insane shots from tournament game that won’t soon be forgotten.

5. Kyle Guy’s off-balanced corner 3

Virginia guard Kyle Guy got off to a slow start on Saturday night. He even rolled his ankle late in the first half, and looked questionable to return at all.

Yet the junior bounced back and finished with 25 points, shooting 5-of-12 from behind the arc.

One of those 3-pointers, though, easily stood out from the rest.

Nearly five minutes into the second half, Guy dished the ball off to Ty Jerome. He then cut to the corner, meeting a perfectly placed bounce pass before pulling up with Purdue’s Ryan Cline right in his face.

It was that simple.

4. Edwards didn’t look anywhere else

This one is crazy, simply because Edwards didn’t even look for another option.

He had just brought the ball up the floor, and Purdue was just setting up its offense. Big man Matt Haarms was preparing to set a screen near the top of the key.

There was no need, though. Edwards just stopped and pulled up from well-behind the arc.

This one even earned respect from Guy, who smiled and gave a “thumbs up” before inbounding the ball.

3. Edwards from the logo

Yes, Edwards showed off his range repeatedly on Saturday night.

But it was this shot, with just more than five minutes left in the game, that really turned heads — when Edwards pulled up from the half-court logo and expertly drilled the 3-pointer.

2. Edwards from the logo, again

Honestly, this one could be interchangeable with No. 3.

But Edwards created just enough space and pulled up from nearly the half-court logo with a hand in his face like it was nothing.

He just launched it — and hit nothing but net.

1. Mamadi Diakite’s buzzer-beater

Edwards and Guy had plenty of insane shots in the matchup Saturday night, but there’s no doubt that Virginia forward Mamadi Diakite earns the top spot.

Virginia’s Ty Jerome, while down just two points, missed the second of two free-throw attempts in the final seconds. Virginia tapped the rebound into the backcourt before regaining possession. The ball was launched up to Diakite, who was open just inside the free throw line.

Diakite got his shot off with just 0.4 seconds left, and sent the game into overtime.

Sure, you could argue that other shots were more difficult to make. But if it weren’t for Diakite, Virginia wouldn’t be on its way to Minneapolis next week.

Overtime: Even more from Edwards

Let’s be honest, it’s hard to pick out just a handful of shots from Edwards’ highlight tape. He dropped 42 points while making 10 3-pointers after all.

There were way more than just five.

So, here’s his full tape from the night. Feel free to substitute any highlight in here to the list above — except for the top spot. Diakite has that one locked down.
