WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) — Zach Edey scored a career-hight 30 points on 12-for-13 shooting and had 11 rebounds and Purdue led the whole way in a 63-44 win over Austin Peay on Friday night.

Edey's dunk with 5:27 left before halftime made it 23-12 and the Boilermakers led by double digits for the remainder of the game.
