No. 18 Purdue dominates Arizona State in Jimmy V Classic

NEW YORK (AP) No. 18 Purdue did just about everything well in a 97-64 thrashing of Arizona State on Tuesday night in the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden.

The Boilermakers scored inside and from the perimeter. They played stingy defense. They rebounded with extra energy.

''I thought right as we started moving the basketball, we got into a rhythm and our guys played maybe the best half (of the season) outside of the first 4 minutes,'' Purdue coach Matt Painter said.

Isaac Haas and Vincent Edwards were both 6 of 9 from the field and had 16 points for Purdue.

''I would say we did a lot of great things offensively, moving the ball and getting open looks from 3-point and down on the block,'' Haas said. ''But defensively there was some things we had to tune up. We eventually got most of those corrected, but it still comes down to guarding your man.''

Purdue, which has won six of seven, took command with a 26-2 run that gave the Boilermakers a 35-12 lead. During the spurt, Purdue scored both inside and out while the Sun Devils (5-4) missed 12 of 13 shots and the Boilermakers (7-2) outrebounded Arizona State 16-5.

Arizona State finished the first half 1 of 11 from 3-point range, one game after matching the school record with 18 3s against UNLV. The Sun Devils were 4 for 26 for the game on 3s and 24 of 67 overall (24 of 67).

''It came real easy for them their last home game,'' Painter said. ''We just wanted to stay with them. We just wanted them to take contested shots and not leave them (open).''

Ryan Cline had 15 points for Purdue, and Basil Smotherman added 13. Carsen Edwards and Dakota Mathias scored 12 each.

Cline was 5 for 7 and Vincent Edwards went 4 for 5 from 3-point range as Purdue finished 15 of 27 from long range. The Boilermakers shot 59.4 percent overall (38 of 64).

''I think things definitely went in our favor, especially shooting the basketball,'' Painter said.

''We were just being simple and making plays. We were just playing team ball,'' Vincent Edwards said. ''I feel like when one team is missing shots and the other team is making a lot of shots and capitalizing on those misses, it really shows.''

Shannon Evans II led the Sun Devils with 16 points, and Torian Graham added 14.

''Purdue's a really good basketball team, really good balance, toughness, inside game,'' Arizona State coach Bobby Hurley said. ''They made a good amount of shots behind the line. I thought we competed for about 8 minutes out of 40. That's not good enough at this level.''

Caleb Swanigan had 10 rebounds to lead the Boilermakers, who finished with a 44-28 advantage on the glass. The 7-foot-2 Haas had seven rebounds.

''We identify ourselves with making jump shots,'' Hurley said. ''Right now we're a soft team and we don't have any backbone. When we didn't make our shots, we folded, we gave in. It was sad to see.

''It's unfortunate that our team didn't even come close to the energy that Jimmy (Valvano) had in his life and his passion. We had no passion for playing. We did a disservice to this game and this event and what he represented.''

The win ended a three-game losing streak at Madison Square Garden for the Boilermakers, who are 13-9 in the building all-time.
