WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Trevion Williams scored 20 points and Zach Edey added 18 as No. 6 Purdue routed Wright State 96-52 on Tuesday night.

It’s the first time since 2018-19 that the Boilermakers have opened 3-0.

It’s also the first time since December 2000 they’ve topped the 90-point mark in three straight games.

The Raiders were led by Trey Calvin with 21 points. But, last year’s Horizon League regular-season champs had no chance against Purdue’s two dominant big men.
