Even that was less-than-smooth.
Painter said Haarms brings a high level of energy as a shot-blocker on defense and can open up Purdue's offense with his mobility. Edwards wasn't called for a foul over his 15 second-half minutes. The Spartans were up 7-6 nearly six minutes in. When the teams played in December, the Boilermakers outscored the Bulldogs 19-8 from the line. No. 2 Purdue rolled in its NCAA opener by clobbering Cal State Fullerton, 74-48. It will meet the East Region's third seed, Texas Tech, Friday in Boston.
The Bulldogs were down by three with a chance to tie after Purdue missed the front end of a one-and-one with 1.8 seconds to play.
Figuring out how to beat Purdue hasn't been accomplished by very many opponents this season, but if there is a solution to the dilemma, it may be limiting the Boilers' 3-point shooting.
Texans, Tyrann Mathieu agree on one-year deal, report says
Additionally help was also needed since Marcus Gilchrist departed for Oakland, signing a one-year deal per Ian Rapoport. One of the state's most beloved players was gone, about to hit the open market as a free agent for any team to bid on.
Redshirt freshman Matt Haarms will replace Haas in the starting lineup Sunday. The Boilermakers' next possible rivals Texas Tech (+4500) can be the dark horse of the competition. Both his scoring and rebounding ranked second on the team.
Haas averaged 14.7 points and 5.7 rebounds per game this season.
The junior walk-on drew praise from coach Matt Painter after the game. He finished with nine points and 10 rebounds on the day. Thompson added 14 points and Carsen Edwards scored 13 despite not having a stellar shooting performance.
The door for Haas to play two days later was left open after LaForce reported that the senior wanted to play and that his brace would need to be cleared to do so. He said Haas provided with him a steady supply of support and advice from the bench.

Purdue's dramatics surrounding its star 7-foot-2 center are spicing up right before its game for a spot in the Sweet 16.
The Boilermakers play the victor of Friday's matchup between No. 7 seed Arkansas and No. 10 seed Butler.
The Ramblers are moving on. "I don't see him playing". It's one of two games Sunday that pit two teams from the same state; the second round will conclude at night with West Virginia taking on Marshall. "But we also have to protect the other players, and we have a job to do.' I totally understand that".
Aamir Khan celebrates birthday in Mumbai, says Big B is coping well
Kiran and Aamir even sat down for a press conference after the "incident" and happily answered questions from the audience. Kiran said that she married Aamir because of his sensitivity and intelligence, and she never wants him to change these.
I'm not sure what to make of the Purdue Boilermakers without Isaac Haas, as they weren't good defensively in their win over Butler, allowing the Bulldogs to shoot 49.1 percent from the field and were about even on the glass without their big man.
