Kevin Anderson helps Richmond control Purdue for Chicago tourney title
HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill. -- Richmond's Kevin Anderson had the gaudy numbers and the MVP trophy. He said the real credit for the Spiders' 65-54 victory over Purdue (No. 8 ESPN/USA Today, No. 10 AP) on Saturday night goes to the defense."We were tough on the rebounds and we were just as physical as they were," said Anderson, who scored 28 points, 21 in the second half. "The coaches did a good job of scouting the guys. We were all in there tight [defensively]. When [Purdue's E'Twaun] Moore tried to drive we all helped out and really solidified the middle and made it real tight."
