UConn vs. Purdue players to watch

The biggest college basketball star to watch will be Purdue's Zach Edey. The 7-foot-4 senior is averaging 24.9 points, 12.2 rebounds, 2.2 blocks and 2.1 assists while shooting 62.5% overall on 13.5 attempts and 71.1% from the free-throw line on 11.2 attempts. Guards Braden Smith, Lance Jones and Fletcher Loyer also average double-digit points for the Boilermakers.

UConn, on the other hand, doesn't have a clear-cut No. 1 option like Edey but have a deep squad to call upon. Tristen Newton (14.9 points) and Cam Spencer (14.4 points) are the two leading scorers, while Alex Karaban, Donovan Clingan and Stephon Castle also average double-digit points. Spencer, a 6-foot-4 senior guard who averages a 49/44/91 shooting split on 10.1/5.7/2.3 attempts, will need to stay confident with his shot.
