WEST LAFAYETE, Ind. (AP) Minnesota coach Ben Johnson isn't sure how anyone can slow down Purdue big man Zach Edey.

"I don't think there's a team in the country that has an answer," Johnson said.

The 7-foot-4 Edey set career highs with 31 points and 22 rebounds, powering No. 5 Purdue past Minnesota 89-70 Sunday in the Big Ten opener for both teams.
