WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue's Vincent Edwards has been selected to participate in the inaugural 3X3U National Championship this weekend in San Antonio. This ground-breaking new event will pit 32 four-man teams consisting of players from every Division I college basketball conference against each other in a three day, 3-on-3 tournament.

These teams, comprised of seniors who have exhausted their collegiate eligibility, will compete for a $100,000 prize pool viewable live on Twitter and ESPN2 from Friday, March 30 through Sunday, April 1, 2018, at St. Mary's University's Bill Greehey Arena in San Antonio.

Edwards is one of four players selected from the Big Ten Conference, joining Ohio State's Jae'Sean Tate, Minnesota's Nate Mason and Indiana's Robert Johnson.

Edwards, a 6-foot, 8-inch forward from Middletown, Ohio, was named second-team All-Big Ten after averaging 14.6 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game this past season for the 30-7 Boilermakers. He became just the third collegiate player in the last 25 years to score 1,600 career points, grab 750 rebounds, dish out 400 assists and make at least 150 3-pointers.
