Haas warmed up before the game but wasn't using his injured arm much, and an official said a few minutes before tipoff that the big man's brace hadn't been approved for competition. The Boilermakers' next possible rivals Texas Tech (+4500) can be the dark horse of the competition.

"His confidence has grown to such a high level", first-year Butler coach LaVall Jordan said Saturday of Edwards, "as you continue to watch him develop".

Edwards was charged with his first just 4 minutes into the game.

Mich- The Bulldogs started the game strong, leading by as many as 9 points, but in the 2nd half Purdue just couldn't miss and in the end Dakota Mathis delivered the dagger three pointer to give the Boilers a 5 point lead they would never relinquish.

"Oh I thought it was going in", Kelan Martin told Indy Sports Central in the lockeroom.

Against Fullerton, the Boilermakers got off to a slow start offensively, but Edwards continually drove the ball to the rim and drew fouls.

Edwards hit 6 of 8 shots and all six free throws. "Our senior class, we've been through a lot together". "He's always that guy that we can count on, it seems like, down the stretch to make a shot when we need it or be able to get his shot".

Vincent Edwards led Purdue with 20 points and four rebounds; P.J. "That's been big for us all year and he's been consistent on doing it".

The seventh-seeded Aggie's held the Tarheels to 33 percent shooting in an 86-65 rout before a North Carolina-friendly crowd in Charlotte.

Talking about the injury for the first time Sunday, Haas said he was shocked by the diagnosis. He shot 62 percent from the field during the regular season and Big Ten tournament.

If Purdue or MI is going to get to that third weekend, then they'll need to clear those hurdles once and for all.

Butler redshirt sophomore Sean McDermott doesn't often produce offensively to a significant degree, but when he does, it certainly has an impact on the Bulldogs.

Butler had their best run in the 1st Half with 7:42 on the clock. "We're excited to come out with a win". He was making plays offensively.

The shot by Mathias made it 76-71.

When a defeat can end a season at any time, injuries like this are magnified.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Boilermakers are 3.5-point favorites to knock off the Bulldogs this afternoon while the over/under now sits at 144 points.
