Purdue navigates past Vermont

(TSX / STATS) -- MILWAUKEE -- Two years ago, Cincinnati brought Purdue's season to an abrupt end with a one-point victory. Last year, Arkansas-Little Rock forced a pair of overtimes before stunning the Boilermakers with a one-possession upset.

But Purdue washed the bitter taste of those first-round upsets away Thursday, using its size inside and 21 points from junior Vincent Edwards to hold off No. 13 Vermont for an 80-70 victory in a first-round Midwest Regional contest at the Bradley Center.

"Going out (in the first round the last) two years, was terrible," Edwards said. "To get this and get that monkey off your back, it feels great."
