Xavier Battles Against Purdue But Come Up Short 83-71

Tonight, Xavier had their first true test of the season. A matchup on the road in the hostile Mackey Arena vs Zach Edey and the Purdue Boilermakers.


Xavier got in foul trouble in the second half, they didn't hit their threes throughout the game and had a few costly turnovers. But still had a promising performance and can give their fan base hope for the remainder of the season.




Trey Green is beginning to show why he was so highly coveted for Xavier. While 4/12 from the floor and 2/9 from the perimeter isn't going to look great on the box score the fearlessness and athleticism are so impressive, and were on display this game. Green also had a huge steal in the game and an awesome assist to Kachi Nzeh under the basket.
