Saint Peter’s Peacocks continues their Cinderella run to the Elite Eight with a sad epic about Purdue, and Twitter absolutely loves it.
Saint Peter’s do not shock their opponents or the world.
On Friday, the Peacocks became the first team in NCAA Tournament history to advance to the Elite Eight as 15th seed when they beat Purdue’s 3rd boil.
Just like their upset wins before, this matchup features solid defense and undefeated synergies.
It’s hard not to root for Saint Peter’s, and Twitter hasn’t even tried. Everyone’s on board the Peacock.

Saint Peter’s got 14 points from Daryl Banks III and overcame fouled KC Ndefo to claim the team’s best win. They were at a disadvantage under the basket but never let Purdue get too comfortable, punishing their mistakes on either side of the floor.
Now, the Peacocks can expect to face UCLA or UNC in the Elite Eight. They made history. Who knows what kind of waves they’ll make next.
