What to Know
The #3 Purdue Boilermakers have enjoyed the comforts of home their last three games, but now they must head out on the road. Purdue and the Penn State Nittany Lions will face off in a Big Ten battle at noon ET on Saturday at Bryce Jordan Center. The Boilermakers won both of their matches against Penn State last season (80-72 and 73-52) and are aiming for the same result this time around.
Purdue entered their matchup against the Wisconsin Badgers on Monday without any home losses — but there’s a first time for everything. Purdue was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap as they fell 74-69 to Wisconsin. If the result catches you off guard, it should: Purdue was far and away the favorite. Center Zach Edey put forth a good effort for the losing side as he posted a double-double on 24 points and ten boards.
Meanwhile, the Nittany Lions sure made it a nail-biter, but they managed to escape with a 74-70 win over the Northwestern Wildcats on Wednesday. Penn State’s forward Seth Lundy was one of the most active players for the squad, shooting 5-for-9 from downtown and finishing with 23 points.
The Boilermakers are now 12-2 while Penn State sits at 7-5. A pair of stats to keep an eye on: Purdue is stumbling into the game with the 15th fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.6 on average. Penn State has experienced some struggles of their own as they are 357th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only nine on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
