Carsen Edwards broke a long shooting slump to score 42 points in Purdue’s thumping of Villanova in the Round of 32.
Edwards went a combined 14-for-49 in the last two games of the regular season, went 4-for-17 in the conference tournament loss, and then went 7-for-23 in the first round win over Old Dominion. That’s 25-for-89, or almost exactly 28 percent.
Edwards is the offense but Purdue plays tremendous team defense that held ODU to 49 points in the first round and Villanova to 61 on Saturday. It only forced nine turnovers but kept Villanova off the line and allowed the Wildcats only seven assists, too.
This is bound to be an ugly game and that’s how Tennessee prefers it. The Vols looked great in the first half against Iowa on Sunday and built up a 25-point lead.
Then things got dicey for Rick Barnes, as they have in NCAA Tournaments of the past. The Hawkeyes came storming back in the second half to tie the game twice and ultimately send the game to overtime.
Grant Williams rescued the Vols in overtime with six points in a row that ended up being the difference. All in the same game, Tennessee showed some of its flaws that have hurt it down the stretch but also ended up winning a game it could have lost. If you want to win a National Championship, such a win is often necessary.
Jordan Bowden should be the man to mark Carsen Edwards. He’s a terrific defender and not the most important offensive player, which works out well for the Vols.
