Named preseason B1G POY

Edwards has been voted Preseason Player of the Year in the Big Ten Conference.
ANALYSIS
Edwards finished third in the league last season in scoring with 18.5 PPG, and is a clear favorite to take home the scoring title in 2018-19. He also improved his averages by at least one full rebound and assist from his freshman year, and saw his shooting percentage increase by eight percent. Of the top-5 scorers on Purdue's roster last season, Edwards is the only player still on the roster, so there's room for that production to expand considerably. He's a clear-cut first-round pick in Big Ten-only fantasy drafts, and should merit similar attention on the national radar. Both Edwards and Wisconsin's Ethan Happ were unanimous selections to the preseason all-Big Ten team, joining Romero Langford, Juwan Morgan, Anthony Cowan, Charles Matthews, Nick Ward, Cassius Winston, Jordan Murphy and James Palmer on that list.
