NCAA Tournament: Purdue rolls over Cal State Fullerton

NCAA Tournament: Purdue rolls over Cal State Fullerton

The junior averages 19.4 points per game and shoots 43 percent from behind the 3-point line, almost a 20 percent improvement from a season ago.

Carsen Edwards and Vincent Edwards scored 15 points apiece, and second-seeded Purdue shook off a slow start to roll past No. 15 Cal State Fullerton 74-48 in the NCAA East Region. The senior from Tennessee improved in just about every area over last season, but none were more pronounced than his 3-point shooting, which stands at 43.6 percent after shooting below 30 percent last season.

Purdue and Cal State Fullerton are scheduled to tip off at 12:40 p.m. Friday in Detroit. Despite his progress from deep, Allman is still a slasher at heart and has caused problems for opposing big men this season by getting in the lane and causing foul trouble.

Although the Titans aren't a very popular upset pick as a 15-seed over Purdue, they could give the Boilermakers some problems - especially their top three scorers.

LeBron James throws down his best dunk of the season vs. Blazers
They came in shorthanded and trailed by as many as 15 in the second half, and got as close as three points with 2:58 left. LeBron James is so magical that sometimes, you have to look to comic book characters to explain how great he is.

Purdue center Isaac Haas is hard to miss on the court.

"They executed our game plan on both ends of the floor to a tee, and it's a special credit to them and what they've done for this program", Taylor said of his team. The only real worry is if the Titans take an early lead and panic begins to set in for a team that probably needs a Final Four appearance to consider this season a success. They have too much experience.

Purdue opened as 20.5-point favorites but the line dropped a half-point to 20 at most online books.
