Kyle Guy has been named one of five finalists for the 2019 Jerry West Award (nation’s top SG) along with Duke’s RJ Barrett, Hofstra’s Justin Wright-Foreman, Purdue’s Carsen Edwards and Texas Tech’s Jarrett Culver. (Photo courtesy UVA Media Relations)
Purdue survived Carsen Edwards going 4 of 15 vs. Maryland, 6 of 18 vs. Indiana, 4 of 19 vs. Michigan State, 6 of 20 vs. Minnesota, 4 of 24 vs. Indiana and 3 of 16 vs. Nebraska. Couldn't survive him going 7 of 31 in rematch with Minnesota, though.
Carsen Edwards attempted a career-high 31 shots in Tuesday's loss to Minnesota. That was the most shot attempts in a game by a #BigTen player since Corey Sanders put up 33 against Illinois in 2016. #Purdue is 7-6 this season when Edwards attempts 20+ FGA (15-2 with 19 or fewer).
So, dance with the one who brung ya', as they say. Carsen Edwards is going to shoot. But why on earth does Ryan Cline not get another shot after hitting back-to-back threes with three minutes to play? Woof, Purdue. Find the hot hand.
Carsen Edwards took 31 of his teams 68 shots tonight. How does Purdue not win when they have the best player in the big ten taking that many shots? Lots of people only look at points and don’t realize he’s a TERRIBLE shooter. 7/31 FG and 3/15 3 pt. Typical Edwards tonight.
The last two times I’ve watched Purdue, Carsen Edwards has gone 4 for 24 and I believe 6 for 30 tonight... I tend to find Matt Painter to be an excellent coach, I imagine that has to drive him absolutely insane. @Mastinjones@dcsoda
If anyone is still on the Carsen Edwards B1G POTY train, I urge you to reconsider. In a regular season title clinching game, he was 7-29 featuring 3-14 from deep. Dude is just Trae Young with a worse %
I think it’s fair to say Carsen Edwards has not taken the step forward this season that many thought he would, and I’m not just talking about tonight. For someone who was picked in the preseason as a first team All-American and B1G POY, his level of play has t come close to that.
@mgoblog I know he has to do everything for the team and all, but man, Carsen Edwards has had A LOT of brutal shooting games in the Big 10. Am I crazy for being bewildered by why he's still talked about as a player of the year type? Is it just the usage/team wins?
FG: 23% (7/31)
3PT: 20% (3/15)
At some point it’s not your night and you need to create opportunity for the team.
Haarms contributed nothing (FG: 13%), there were ZERO points off the bench, and 50% from free throw...
This was a close but ugly loss.
