As we get deeper into the ACC/Big Ten Challenge the games get better. This one is mid-tier but expected to be a nice matchup.
I know it is early but we also get the benefit of a couple of undefeated teams, so that always adds some excitement.
The Boilermakers are 6-0 and have been playing well. Despite that perfection I still think they are tinkering with how they want to play this season as senior center A.J. Hammons is averaging the fewest minutes of their very talented bigs.
Freshman Caleb Swanigan is averaging the most and he is leading the team in rebounding as a result, he is putting up close to a double-double.
Isaac Haas is the leading scorer at 15ppg. If he has become reliable source of points that makes this group even more dangerous.
In this one we may see all three get a bit more of a run but it is pretty impressive to have three separate players, all 6’9″ or bigger, separately lead in points, rebounds and blocks.
Talk about depth and size.
It is hard to say what the future will be for the Panthers. Now in their third season in the ACC they may be outclassed and their brand of basketball may not deliver enough success.
Last season was the first since 2001 that they did not enter the AP rankings and this season looks like it will be pretty much the same.
That could change if they were able to beat Purdue, which is going to be the most challenging team on their conference schedule this season.
Luckily the Panthers do have some quality size themselves. PF Michael Young is averaging 18/8 but he is going to feel small next to the Boilermakers’ bigs. This actually might be a game for wing Jamel Artis to shine.
He could get some favourable matchups out on the wing where Purdue is not as deep.

Free CBB Prediction:
I like the Boilermakers here. The only reason not to is that this is going to be their first road test in what can definitely be considered a hostile environment.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: Purde ATS
It is just a pick’em though so even though I expect Purdue to win easily they only have to win.
