Purdue Poised to Defeat Tennessee in Late-November Showdown, Thanks to Edey's Player of the Year Skill Set
Two top-10 teams, Tennessee and Purdue, are set to meet in late November. Tennessee has won all of their games this season by double digits and have a victory over Wisconsin to credit. Purdue has also had significant success, having defeated Xavier and Gonzaga in their last two games. Tennessee, however, may face a challenge with defending Edey, the frontrunner for Player of the Year, given their tallest player at 6’11, 240, is five inches and 60 pounds shorter than him. While both teams have plenty of experience and fortitude, it is likely that Purdue will come out on top due to Edey's incredible skillset.
