Edey helps No. 23 Purdue hold off No. 25 Wisconsin 73-69

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) Zach Edey developed his closing mentality on the pitching mound. He showed Tuesday it works pretty well on the basketball court, too.

The strong, stone-faced freshman scored a career-high 21 points including nine straight during one stretch and led No. 23 Purdue to a crucial 73-69 victory over No. 25 Wisconsin.

"When the score gets close, my emotions come out and my inner competitiveness comes out," said Edey, who was a closer for his high school baseball team. "I love to compete in situations like that when the team's leaning on me like that."
