BOSTON - The Purdue men's basketball team had its first glimpse of the TD Garden as it went through a 90-minute practice and media obligations in advance of Friday's contest with Texas Tech in the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16.

TODAY'S THREE NCAA NOTES
1) Purdue is 2-0 all-time against Texas Tech, but hasn't faced the Red Raiders since Dec. 1, 1988. Purdue is 27-26 all-time against the Big 12 and with the contest against Texas Tech, will have faced a Big 12 team in three of its last five NCAA Tournament games (Iowa State, Kansas, Texas Tech).
2) Purdue is looking for its fifth Elite 8 appearance in school history and the first since 2000.
3) Vincent Edwards is averaging 17.6 points, 7.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game in seven NCAA Tournament games, shooting 47 of 87 (.540) from the field.
