Edwards leads Purdue to rout of reigning champ Villanova
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) Purdue's Carsen Edwards says he was getting tired of answering questions about his shooting slump.
The Boilermakers' junior star had all the answers Saturday night. He scored a career-high 42 points as Purdue knocked reigning national champion Villanova out of the NCAA Tournament in an 87-61 rout.
Matt Haarms added 18 points and nine rebounds for the third-seeded Boilermakers (25-9), who advanced to their third straight Sweet 16. Ryan Cline added 12 points, all on 3-pointers.MORE
