Sunday afternoon Purdue beat Michigan State 77-61 in West Lafayette.
MSU has not won in Mackey Arena since 2014.
Purdue is now 21-1 and ranked #1 in the nation. MSU is 14-8.
Zach Edey of Purdue, who happens to be the best center in the nation and should win player-of-the-year was unstoppable.
Thirteen days ago he had 32 points and 17 rebounds in a win in East Lansing
Yesterday he had 38 (career high) and 13.
Spartans had no answer for him.
Jay Wright was the analyst for CBS – he did a very good job. The two-time NCAA champion had a few good gems when talking about the game; one that stood out was “listen and know you have to improve.”
Spiro,the play-by-play guy talks way too much, like most PBP guys. Allow the color analyst to break it down.
Remember Purdue lost to Saint Peter’s last year in the Sweet 16 and they had Jaden Ivey.
Boilermakers were unranked this pre-season.
Matt Painter is a heck of a coach. He starts two freshmen in his backcourt. You don’t see that often.
Fletcher Loyer, one of those first year players reminds me of Luke Kennard.
Love the sign in Mackey, “Defense lives here.”
Another gem from Wright: “Catch it up, keep it up,” when talking about a big man catching the ball.
Have a positive day…
