Preparing for Purdue means getting ready to face one of the most unique individual challenges in college basketball.
Boilermaker center Zach Edey stands 7-foot-4 and he's taken his game up more than one notch as a junior. Edey's averaging 21.7 points and 13.4 boards per game as the Big Ten's leading scorer and rebounder, and Ohio State knows exactly how difficult it will be to slow him down on Thursday.
"He's a human cheat code. He's the most dominant player in college basketball, we know that," Buckeye head coach Chris Holtmann said Wednesday. "So it's gonna take a team effort."
Holtmann, Zed Key and Eugene Brown all discussed the upcoming 7 p.m. matchup with the No. 1 team in the country at the Schottenstein Center, and you can check out everything all three of them said in the videos above and below.
