Next up for Purdue is Texas Tech in Sweet 16

(AP) -

Next up for Purdue in the Sweet 16 is Texas Tech and coach Chris Beard.

While those two teams haven't played since 1998, Boilermakers fans surely remember Beard -- for all the wrong reasons.

Beard was the coach at Arkansas-Little Rock when the 12th-seeded Trojans shocked Purdue 85-83 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament just two years ago.

Texas Tech was the Big 12 runner-up this season, and is in its first Sweet 16 since 2005.
