An internet connection has been spotty during this trip for Purdue basketball, but Chris Forman, Purdue's excellent basketball SID, has been great with posting video of the games to watch on YouTube after they are over. Today is no different as we have Purdue's 96-72 win over the Barcelona All-Stars.
Here is the first half, with the second half to come:
Casey will have a more formal wrap later, but among the best from today:
- Carsen Edwards had 25 points on 8 of 9 shooting including 3 of 3 from 3. Purdue might have a dangerous point guard on its hands.
- Caleb Swanigan had yet another double-double and BROKE A DAMN BACKBOARD IN THE SECOND HALF.
- Isaac Haas had another 19 points and continues to be virtually unstoppable on offense.
- Purdue still had 18 turnovers, but held them under 34% shooting from the field.
I will have the second half video posted here when it becomes available.
