Carsen Edwards turned in one of the most exciting careers in recent college basketball history for the Purdue Boilermakers, averaging 14.5 points per game in two seasons.
The stats belie Edward’s ability to go off for big scoring nights at the most unexpected of times.
Generously listed at 6-foot-1, 200 pounds, Edwards plays with a ferocity and bounce in his step that few other point guards possess.
His ability to pull up from deep and knock down the most incredible long-range shots is something Purdue hadn’t seen in quite some time, and may not see again for several years.
All things considered, Carsen was a fan favorite for the Boilermakers, who saved his best performance for the biggest stage: the 2019 NCAA Tournament with Matt Painter’s crew from West Lafayette, Indiana.
Now, Edwards finds himself with a new Midwest team, this time the NBA’s Detroit Pistons, and his first performance already has fans buzzing.
