speaking of Justin Bean, his Utah State team is currently playing against undefeated Oklahoma. at halftime, Bean has a game-high 9 points and a game-high 11 rebounds. more importantly to him, i’m sure, his team is ahead on the scoreboard. ********* #6 Purdue overcame an 11-point second half deficit to defeat #5 Villanova today. Zach Edey led all scorers with an uber-efficient 21 (on 9-12 shooting). Furst and Stefanovich both scored in double figures, as well, though Stefanovich had a cold shooting night. Furst, conversely, didn’t miss a shot. for Villanova, Gillespie had a solid all around game, as is his norm. he finished second on the team with both 14 points (4-10 shooting) and 4 rebounds and led them with 5 assists, though he did have 2 turnovers.
