PORTLAND, Ore. — In its first Test outside of Mackey Arena, the No. 24 Purdue basketball overcame 18 turnovers Thursday night in the quarterfinals of the 2022 Phil Knight Legacy Invitational Tournament to defeat West Virginia 80-68.

The Boilermakers — led by junior center Zach Edey on 24 points and 12 rebounds — made eight of their 17 shots from the 3-point line and put down 24 of 28 free throws. Playing mostly against the Mountaineers’ 6-foot-10 forward Jimmy Bell Jr., Edey was 7-of-12 from the field but near-perfect from the foul line and going 10-to-12.
