Red Raiders advance to Elite 8 for first time ever, eliminating Purdue
Mar 24 2018 by Francis Osborne
But the Boilermakers allowed the Red Raiders 17 second-chance points.
Vincent Edwards did have a solid showing to support Carsen, chipping in 12 points and 13 rebounds, but it wasn't almost enough against Texas Tech.

Additionally, the Red Raiders had an 11-point advantage at the line over Purdue which was ideal from the line but only shot 6 free throws. "They're very good on the offensive end too at breaking you down". They were able to get dunks, layups.
Purdue star center Isaac Haas, the team's No. 2 scorer and rebounder, could only be a cheerleader - and a one-armed cheerleader, at that. He bobbled a few passes tonight and could not seem to find a rhythm all game.
Entering the game, Purdue had four players (including Haas) averaging over 14 points per game.
Evans had 12 of his 16 points in the second half, when Texas Tech scored 11 in a row to pull away. The 13-point loss was Purdue's worst of the season. Evans responded with a pair of free throws followed by a three-pointer that made it 63-55 with 4:24 left. Also of note, Dakota Mathias went 1-for-7 from the field. The spread just moved to 2 points on Thursday night. In their second-round win, they held Florida-a high-volume three-point shooting team-to just 6-of-22 from beyond the arc. Its best player, Evans, has battled a nagging toe injury since February.
"It's our formula", Texas Tech Coach Chris Beard said.
Additionally, Tech was relentless on defense forcing 17 turnovers leading to 15 points.

President Donald Trump has threatened to impose the tariffs in retaliation for China's disregard for US intellectual property . China expects to take legal action against the USA through the World Trade Organization, the country's Commerce Ministry said.
Purdue was supposed to be prepared for the defensive pressure. Matt Haarms has a lot of size, but he is not almost the offensive player Haas is and it showed. Senior Dakota Mathias had three points.
Tech made a decision to be physical with the skinny native of The Netherlands.
Undeterred, Texas Tech frequently took the ball directly to the rim.
With Benson barred from the floor, Keenan Evans, Justin Gray, Norense Odiase and the rest of the Raiders came to him.
"Yeah, I think we have the best bench in the entire country", Gray said. That proved not to be the case.
Stevenson delivered seven points, while freshman Davide Moretti added five and Zach Smith contributed four.
The Red Raiders began their Sweet 16 run with a win over No. 14 Stephen F. Austin in the first round. After halftime, Zach Smith was a key in helping Tech protect its lead with put-back buckets and strong finishes around the rim. These two guards can take over a game and make plays when the it matters most.
