2017 NCAA Tournament Purdue vs. Vermont game preview
Purdue will be favored to advance when opening its 2017 NCAA Tournament play against Vermont.
The Boilermakers are 25-7, and they’ve won eight of their past 10 games dating to Feb. 1. It will be interesting to see if an overtime loss to Michigan in the Big Ten Tournament last Friday has any lingering effect for Purdue, which will make its third consecutive NCAA Tournament under coach Matt Painter.
Caleb Swanigan leads the Boilermakers in scoring by averaging 18.5 points per game. Isaac Haas follows with 12.8, and Vince Edwards averages 12.2.
Vermont, meanwhile, enters as one of the hottest teams in the tournament. The Catamounts (29-5) have won 20 straight games, with their most recent loss happening against Butler way back on Dec. 21.
Vermont features three players who average double-digit scoring. Anthony Lamb leads the way with 12.6 points per game, Payton Henson follows with 11.4 and Trae Bell-Haynes 11.1.
Purdue should be on the lookout when facing a hot opponent capable of pulling an upset.
