2022 Tournament PreviewPurdue possesses arguably the strongest one-two frontcourt punch in the nation with 7-4 sophomore Zach Edey (14.6 ppg, 7.8 rpg, 1.2 bpg) and 6-10 senior Trevion Williams (11.7 ppg, 7.4 rpg). Powered by that tandem, the team ranks are second nationwide in rebounding rate. The offense's strength, though, is on the perimeter, as the Boilermakers shoot 39.1 percent from distance, third in the nation. Likely NBA lottery pick Jaden Ivey (17.4 ppg, 4.9 rpg, 3.2 apg) shoots 35.6 percent from three-point range while four others with at least 65 attempts are 40-plus percent shooters. That makes the Boilermakers the nation's third-most efficient offense, according to KenPom. Defensively, Purdue is far off that mark, ranking 100th, as it doesn't create many turnovers. Purdue is also below average from the foul line. Still, the combination of talent and experience make the Final Four a possibility.
