Purdue vs. NC State Team News and Key Performers

Purdue Boilermakers Team News

Soon-to-be two-time Player of the Year, big man Zach Edey (24.6 PPG, 12.1 RPG, 2.2 BPG, 2.1 APG) put Purdue on his back and carried the program to their first Final Four in 44 years.

In a mouthwatering Elite Eight battle, Edey battled one-on-one with Tennessee star Dalton Knecht. Edey dropped 40 of Purdue's 72. Knecht put in 37 of UT's 66, but the 7' 4", 300-pound beast dominated his counterpart on the paint with 16 rebounds, and drew lots of fouls.

He will look to relieve the Boilermakers of the pressure that comes with no national titles in over half-a-century. But he won't be alone.

Purdue boast a capable supporting cast in Braden Smith (12.3 PPG, 7.5 APG, 5.8 RPG), Fletcher Loyer, and Lance Jones (12.0 PPG, 2.7 RPG, 2.1 APG).

NC State Wolfpack Team News

The Wolfpack have size, skill, cleverness, and experience, not to mention confidence in plenty to give Purdue run for their money.

Burly senior forward DJ Burns (12.8 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 2.7 APG) will have a fascinating matchup with Purdue's Zach Edey, with both players boasting different style of play.

Edey is a typical post baller, shooting hooks and dunks the majority of the time. Burns boasts nimble footwork, quick spins and clever passing to create for himself and teammates.

Senior guard DJ Horne (16.7 PPG, 3.3 RPG, 2.1 APG), who is confident, smooth, and adept at making tough shots, has also been stellar.

Mohamed Diarra has double-doubles in three NCAA Tournament games so far, and will be tasked with Purdue playmaker Trey Kaufman-Renn.
