WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Purdue's Vincent Edwards didn't hesitate when talking about his friendship with Ohio State's Jae-Sean Tate.
The two played AAU ball together before moving on to their respective Big Ten schools.
"We were just texting each other last night," Edwards said.
Purdue and Ohio State are set for one of this year's marquee matchups in the Big Ten, if not the country at Mackey Arena Wednesday night.
"Of course we're enemies on the court ... but off the court, there's nothing but positive vibes," explained Edwards.
Edwards guarded Tate man-to-man last year in Columbus, and will likely be responsible for slowing him down Wednesday.
Edwards is averaging 15 points and seven rebounds per game this season.
Tate scores 12 points per game and shoots 55 percent from the field.
