The last time Purdue made the Final Four was in the 1979-80 season when the Boilermakers lost to UCLA 67-62.

Led by head coach Lee Rose, Purdue went 23-10 in the regular season and enjoyed a deep run in the tournament before bowing out a few wins shy of a national title.

The 2023 Final Four will be at NRG Stadium in Houston.
