Purdue Defeats Yale In The First Round Of The NCAA Tournament

Purdue overpowered Yale 78-56 in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Friday, with Javey scoring 22 points and Zach Edey controlling the play inside.

In 27 minutes, Ivey, one of college basketball’s fastest players, shot 3 for 6 from 3-point range and 7 for 9 at the free-throw line. Edey, who is 7 feet 4 inches tall, took advantage of his physical advantage against the Ivy League winners, scoring 16 points and grabbing nine rebounds in 19 minutes.

Purdue (28-7) won its NCAA opening for the fourth time in five tournaments, with Ivey darting up and down8 the court and Edey towering over the lane. Purdue was the lone exception last year, when it was beaten in the first round by 13th-seeded North Texas.

As the Boilmakers pushed away from the 14th-seeded Bulldogs at the start of the second half, the overtime loss to the Mean Green felt like a distant memory. On Sunday, the winner of Virginia Tech-Texas in the second round of the East Region will face the winner of the Virginia Tech-Texas matchup.

Yale’s Azar Swain scored 18 points on 8-of-19 shooting for the Bulldogs (19-12), who had won 11 of their previous 13 games.

It was the Bulldogs’ first NCAA Tournament game since 2019. In 2020, they won the Ivy League regular season, but the postseason was canceled because to the pandemic. They didn’t play at all last season because the league canceled all sports due to COVID-19.

Led by Swain , who made each of his first five shots, Yale led 16-15 with 13:06 left in the first half. Ivey and the Boilmakers began to take control at that point.

During a 10-0 run, Ivey hit two free throws and a 3-pointer to put Purdue ahead for good. Yale came within nine points early in the second half on Jalen Gabbodon’s driving layup, but the Boilmakers responded with a 17-2 run.
