DENVER -- Chris Udofia scored 17 points and Denver beat Texas A&M-CC 68-51 on Wednesday night in their home opener.
Udofia was 5 of 7 from the field and had seven rebounds. Brett Olson scored 11 points, including three 3-pointers, for the Pioneers. Royce O'Neale finished with 5 points, seven rebounds and five assists.
Denver (1-1) led 31-23 at halftime.
The Pioneers won a team-record 22 Division 1 games last season.
Purdue coach Matt Painter says players haven't used the fifth-year graduate transfer rule for its true intent.
The dust has settled after players made their NBA draft decisions. Which college teams won? Which lost? Well, Villanova is pretty happy. USC, meanwhile, might not be as thrilled.
The 2017 recruiting class is short on point guards, with Trevon Duval leading only eight prospects from the ESPN 60 who are still available.
