"I think I did pretty good as far as scoring, rebounding and getting my teammates involved," said Purvis. "This was definitely a good win for us. I'm just happy we came out with the win."
Upper Room came out and established a double-digit lead early in the first quarter, and although Ravenscroft made a run in the second period URCA was able to extend the lead to more than 20 points before cruising to the win.
Purvis did much of his scoring damage in the first three quarters, as he spent much of the final period looking to find open teammates or run time off the clock.
"I just wanted to be patient and not rush anything," he said. "I knew we had the lead. If a shot was open I would have taken it, but I'm not going to rush anything because Ravenscroft is a really good team."
Purvis admitted that it was a much-needed win for his team.
"Coach has been on us hard," said Purvis. "We've been struggling a little bit, we had two close losses our previous two games. I'm happy in this game we came out and fough tand won as a team."
Junior guard and Louisville verbal Anton Gill led Ravenscroft with 28 points on 10-of-21 shooting from the field.
When Purvis isn't starring for Upper Room he is often around the Wolfpack's basketball program. Because he lives so close to campus he has been able to attend several of State's home games.
"It's been great," he said. "I get a chance to see the offense and see how they play. It's good when the coach can tell you how they do things, but it's better when you can go out and see it for yourself.
"I think they are doing really good. It's definitely a change from last year. Everyone seems excited, and the fan support is great. It's going really well."
