VCU headed to Sweet Sixteen

CHICAGO (AP) - Bradford Burgess scored 23 points and 11th-seeded Virginia Commonwealth made it three victories in five days Sunday night, routing third-seeded Purdue 94-76 to earn a trip to the Southwest regional semifinals.

VCU's remarkable run sends the Rams to the round of 16 for the first time in school history.

With their fans chanting "VCU, VCU" as the final seconds ticked off the clock, the question is no longer whether the Rams belong. Instead, it's: Who can stop them?

They've ousted Southern Cal, Georgetown and now Purdue since Wednesday night.

Deep, fast and talented, VCU (26-11) will now play the winner of Notre Dame-Florida State on Friday in San Antonio.
