Zach Edey drops 28 as Purdue silences Xavier at Gavitt Tipoff Games
Zach Edey and the Purdue Boilermakers took down a good Xaiver team at the Gavitt Tipoff Games late Monday night.
The Boilers had an 8-point lead heading into the 4th quarter and kept it, winning 83-71. The Musketeers played No. 2 well but losing the final 10 minutes of the first half dug them into a deep hole.
And Edey was Zach Edey: Unstoppable. The Reigning National Player of the Year dropped 28 points with 11 rebounds and 4 blocks. He’s somehow improved his abilities on the defense end so far this season, a major plus for the Boilers moving forward.
