UNC vs Purdue Preview

The Boilermakers are coming off a 96-52 trouncing of Wright State on November 16. Trevion Williams was one of five Purdue players scoring in double figures, leading them all with 20 points and 13 rebounds. Center Zach Edey (18 points, 12 rebounds) and forward Caleb Furst (14 points, 11 rebounds) also notched double-doubles in the victory.

Things will get more difficult for the Boilermakers moving forward. “Now we’ll get a real test in our next tournament with the teams that we’re going to play,” Purdue coach Matt Painter said about UNC, via Yahoo sports. “They have great individual players. They’re like everybody else, trying to find themselves, especially defensively.”

The Tar Heels are fresh from a 94-83 win over Charleston on Tuesday. Forward Armando Bacot led all scores with 24 points, notching a double-double with his 12 rebounds included. Caleb Love added 22 points, and Brady Manek chipped in 17 points and nine boards in the win. It was a solid team effort, but Bacot dominated in the paint, and his coach gave him a big shout out after the game.

“That’s why he’s one of our captains,” North Carolina coach Hubert Davis said about Bacot. “Because not only can he lead us on the court, he can lead us off the court. His work ethic and how competitive and consistent he’s been throughout the entire season has been a real benefit for us as a team.”

UNC was down at halftime, 42-36, but a second half surge brought them back. The Tar Heels outscored Charleston 58-41 in the second half, and the win felt like a galvanizer for the team.

“To see them respond on the road in a packed house,” Davis said, adding: “This builds a lot of confidence for us moving forward. I love it now that we won. Everybody tells us that this is going to make us.”

“This is a game that builds character,” Bacot added.
