MILWAUKEE (AP) --Jaden Ivey raced his way to 22 points and Zach Edey controlled the action inside, helping Purdue overpower Yale for a 78-56 victory in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

The 7-foot-4 Edey made the most of his size advantage against the Ivy League champions, finishing with 16 points and nine rebounds in 19 minutes. Azar Swain scored 18 points on 8-for-19 shooting for Yale, which had won 11 of 13.
