WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue's board of trustees announced Friday it has approved $6.7 million in renovations for Mackey Arena, work funded entirely by private donations and expected to begin after next season.
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Texas’ Chris Beard has beaten Matt Painter’s Purdue teams twice in the NCAA Tournament. Both times, Beard had the worse-seeded squad.
He will try to do it again Sunday when the sixth-seeded Longhorns (22-11) face the third-seeded Boilermakers (28-7) in the second round of the East Region.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Purdue's Brandon Newman hadn't played for more than a month. He certainly didn't show it.
Newman scored 12 points off the bench, Jaden Ivey had 17 and Zach Edey 15 to lead No.
The extraordinary height of Purdue’s Zach Edey makes it difficult for anyone to stop him when he gets the ball near the basket.
That likely will continue to be the case whenever the 7-foot-4 sophomore from Toronto enters the pro ranks.
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — For Purdue coach Matt Painter, Jaden Ivey's ability to break down the defense was the difference.
Ivey scored 25 points, Zach Edey added 15 points and No. 5 Purdue beat Rutgers 84-72 on Sunday, ending the Scarlet Knights' recent run of success against ranked teams.
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Hunter Dickinson had 22 points to lead Michigan in a lopsided 82-58 win over No. 3 Purdue on Thursday night.
Eli Brooks had 16 points, Moussa Diabate had 15 points — all but two in the first half — and Caleb Houstan added 14 for the Wolverines (13-9, 7-5 Big Ten).
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue coach Matt Painter thought he scripted a simple final play Sunday.
Jaden Ivey messed it up, then found a way to make up for his miscue.
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Sasha Stefanovic's early 3-point flurry helped No. 4 Purdue regain its footing Sunday.
The Boilermakers took the cue and finished strong.
Stefanovic made a season-high six 3s on his way to 22 points, and Purdue beat Northwestern 80-60 while playing without Jaden Ivey.
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — No. 7 Purdue had a point to prove Friday night, and got right to work.
The Boilermakers opened the game on a decisive 23-4 run in their 92-65 rout over Nebraska. Zach Edey scored 22 points and Jaden Ivey added 17 to lead Purdue's scorers.
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Zach Edey grew up in Canada playing baseball and hockey and didn't play basketball until he was a high school sophomore.
Now a sophomore at third-ranked Purdue, the 7-foot-4 Edey is the first to admit he had a lot to learn last season.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Zach Edey and Trevion Williams swapped roles for No. 3 Purdue on Saturday.
If anything, it made the Boilermakers even more dangerous.
Edey came off the bench for the first time this season, posted a double-double in the first half, and his presence helped open up the Boilermakers' 3-pointers in a 77-48 rout over Butler at the Crossroads Classic.
NEW YORK (AP) — Trevion Williams had a season-high 22 points to go with 12 rebounds and a career-best nine assists to help No. 1 Purdue North Carolina State 82-72 in overtime Sunday in the Basketball Hall of Fame Invitational.
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Trevion Williams showed his senior leadership down the stretch Friday night.
Not only did Williams motivate his teammates, but he led the way with his effort.
Williams contributed 13 points and 18 rebounds, including two huge ones late, Jaden Ivey scored 19 points and No.
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — No. 3 Purdue accomplished one goal Friday by keeping the foot on the accelerator.
The bigger ones still lie ahead.
Zach Edey scored 20 points in 16 minutes, and the Boilermakers used their huge size advantage to pound Omaha 97-40.
UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — Purdue's biggest men came up large in a huge early season game.
Zach Edey scored 21 points and No. 6 Purdue overcame an 11-point second-half deficit to beat No. 5 Villanova 80-74 on Sunday and win the Hall of Fame Tip-Off Tournament.
UNCASVILLE, Conn. (AP) — No. 6 Purdue showed that its high-scoring offense works, no matter the level of competition.
Sasha Stefanovic scored 23 points and Jaden Ivey put up 22 points to go along with his 10 rebounds as the Boilermakers beat No.
Purdue coach Matt Painter understands how the lessons from a surprisingly short NCAA Tournament appearance can impact a team.
He watched Virginia use the motivation to fuel its 2019 national championship run, and five years ago Painter's own team rebounded from a first-round exit to win the Big Ten regular-season title.
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Purdue guard Brandon Newman’s first-half struggles landed him on the bench to start the second half Saturday.
When coach Matt Painter gave the redshirt freshman a second chance, Newman delivered like a veteran.
