The Morehead State Eagles will head out on the road to face off against the Purdue Boilermakers at 7:00 p.m. ET on Friday at Mackey Arena. Keep an eye on the score for this one: both teams posted some lofty point totals in their previous games.
Winning is just a little bit easier when you work as a team to post 17 more assists than your opponent, a fact Morehead State proved on Wednesday. They steamrolled past the Bears 96-40 at home. The win was just what Morehead State needed coming off of a 105-73 defeat in their prior contest.
Meanwhile, one look at the score and it should come as no surprise that Purdue was far and away the favorite against Samford. The Boilermakers took their game at home on Monday with ease, bagging a 98-45 victory over the Bulldogs. The matchup was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 51-17.
Among those leading the charge was Zach Edey, who dropped a double-double on 16 points and 11 rebounds. The team also got some help courtesy of Camden Heide, who earned 13 points.
Their wins bumped the Eagles to 1-1 and the Boilermakers to 1-0.
