(MILWAUKEE, WI) - Purdue got their first NCAA Tournament win in five years as they knocked off Vermont 80-70.

Vince Edwards led the Boilermakers with 21 points, scoring 15 of them in the second half. Caleb Swanigan recorded a double-double with 16 points and 14 rebounds and five Boilermakers scored in double-figures. They shot over 51 percent from the field and 45 percent from 3-point range.

"It feels good but I don't think we want to stop here," Dakota Mathias said of the win. "We play a good opponent the next game, have a quick turnaround, we've got to take care of ourselves and get back at it."

Purdue takes on fifth-seeded Iowa State on Saturday.
