  • Andy Katz: Purdue is "College Basketball's Big Man Factory"

    Via Fox Sports:

    Purdue makes the game simple for the bigs: foot speed, layups, drilling the necessities.

    Williams and Edey compliment the attention to detail from the staff, notably nine-year assistant coach Brandon Brantley. The focus is on making post moves, layups at the rim, working on freeze faking, getting to the line and working hard to get in position and do the work you need to do before the ball gets there.

    "They develop us,’’ Edey said. "They don’t focus on 3-point shooting or dribbling. Keep it simple. Hone the basic skills and execute them.’’

    “They go to school. They do their homework. They shake hands. They say please and thank you. But once you throw that ball up, they will rip your heart out and watch you bleed.” -- Jay Bilas
