March Madness: Purdue rides Zach Edey, hot 3-point shooting past NC State into national title game

Zach Edey didn't overwhelm NC State on Sunday. He didn't need to.

Purdue's shot makers made plays while its defense flustered a previously hot NC State attack in a 63-50 Final Four victory. Edey did plenty of damage along the way in a 20-point, 12-rebound effort.

The win secures a spot in Monday's national championship for Purdue while ending NC State's magical March run. The Wolfpack won nine straight ACC and NCAA tournament elimination games en route to its spot in the Final Four as an 11 seed. There, Purdue proved too tall of a task.
