    Purdue faces the ghost of a shocking March Madness loss. Virginia has some advice on how to move on

    Purdue had just fallen unexpectedly in the Big Ten Tournament last week and Braden Smith sat down alongside star Zach Edey and coach Matt Painter to meet reporters. It took three questions to conjure a March Madness specter: the Boilermakers' improbable loss as a No. 1 seed to 16th-seeded Fairleigh Dickinson in last year's NCAA Tournament. Yes, Purdue has looked like a title contender all season and owns another 1-seed as the NCAAs begin this week. Only one other program knows that ignominy: Virginia, which fell to UMBC in the first-ever 16-vs-1 upset in 2018.
