BoilerUpload – Quick Wrap – #1 Purdue 77 vs Michigan State 61

The chants for Edey started with two minutes left in the game and turned into MVP chants by the time the big man went to the bench with just over a minute left in front of a sold-out, whited-out crowd at the Mackey Arena.

Purdue started the game with a three from Ethan Morton, but it was Zach Edey who set his career-high for the second time in two games against the Spartans that propelled Purdue to a dominant victory against Tom Izzo and Michigan State, 77-61.

In Purdue’s first-ever “WHITE OUT” game, the #1 Boilers looked like the top team in the country and class of the Big Ten, going 21-1 on the season with only 1 loss in 11 Big Ten games.

For the second game in a row, Michigan State Edey tried to defend one-on-one on the post. For the second time, Edey responded by setting a new career record in points with 38 points to go, along with his 13 rebounds and 3 assists.

He wasn’t alone, as Purdue’s sixth-year transfer David Jenkins Jr. looked set to settle into the Big Ten game and found his chance. Jenkins hit 3 three-pointers for the second time this season, including a three to end the first half, en route to 11 points. He was Purdue’s second leading scorer in the game.
