As a sophomore, Edey helped Purdue earn the No. 1 ranking in the AP poll for the first time in school history and he earned second-team All-Big Ten honors and AP honorable mention All-American recognition. His per game averages improved significantly from his freshman season, from 8.7 points to 14.4, and from 4.4 rebounds per game to 7.7, yet Edey still only averaged 19 minutes per game last season, which meant his per-40-minute averages last season were 30.3 points and 16.2 rebounds per game, suggesting Edey could be capable of even more impressive numbers if he can play at least 25 minutes per game.

The replacement of Challenger 1 tanks in British service by the Challenger 2 coincided with the accession of Abdullah II as King of Jordan. The new king had strong links with Britain, having begun his military career, while a prince, as an officer cadet at Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, serving for a year as a troop commander in the 13th/18th Royal Hussars, a British armoured cavalry regiment, before returning to Jordan. As a member of the Royal Jordanian Army where he became a tank company commander.[11] Abdullah had thought he would spend his life in the military, but to his surprise, on 24 January 1999, weeks before his father's death, he replaced his uncle Hassan as heir apparent.[12]

During Operation Desert Shield it was decided that the 1st (UK) Armoured Division would be placed under the command of the US VII Corps. This corps would form the armoured fist of the Coalition forces, tasked with destroying the bulk of the Iraqi forces.[citation needed] The forces of VII Corps crossed the Saudi border into Iraq, and then crossed into Kuwait. The 1st (UK) Armoured Division was the easternmost unit in VII Corps' sector, its Challenger tanks forming the spearhead of the advance. The division advanced nearly 350 km within 97 hours, destroying the Iraqi 46th Mechanised Brigade, 52nd Armoured Brigade and elements of at least three infantry divisions belonging to the Iraqi 7th Corps in a series of battles and engagements. They captured or destroyed about 300[22] Iraqi tanks and a very large number of armoured personnel carriers, trucks, reconnaissance vehicles, etc.[23] Patrick Cordingley, the British commander of 7th Armoured Brigade, said later that "Challenger is a tank built for combat and not competitions."[24].
