WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) One big second-half push by Purdue was enough.
Carsen Edwards scored 23 points on 8-for-22 shooting, and the 24th-ranked Boilermakers pulled away from Ball State for an 84-75 victory on Saturday night.
Edwards struggled with his shooting stroke at times but managed to contribute in a variety of ways. The junior guard had five rebounds, five assists and blocked a shot.
