Edey had 25 points and 14 rebounds in a first-round win over No. 11 Gonzaga, 23 points and 10 boards in a semifinal win over No. 10 Tennessee and 28 points and 15 rebounds in a win over third-ranked Marquette in the title game. The 7-foot-4 Edey has 44 career double-doubles, and he’s scored in double figures in 57 consecutive games, trailing only Rick Mount’s 72-game run in school history.
