For the Hoosiers to win this game it’s going to come down to the defensive side of the ball. The Hoosiers will get their points but they need to find a way to slow down the potent Boilermakers offense.
They really like to push the pace of the game, so the Hoosiers need to try to force them into tough shots.
A lot of people belive the Purdue Boilermakers have the best chance of any Big Ten team to make a deep run into the NCAA Tournament. But if the Big Ten is counting on them to make a deep run they might be in some trouble.
Some nights the Boilermakers come out and look like a team ready to make it to the final four, and then the next they look like a team that could be bounced in the first couple rounds.
The Boilermakers come into this game with a 23-6 record and sit in 1st place in the Big Ten. They have won six of their last seven games but their last two have been a struggle.
Two games ago Penn State took them to overtime, which they ended up winning. In their last game they lost to Michigan by a score of 82-70.
The Boilermakers are led by national player of the year candidate Caleb Swanigan. He is averaging 18.6 points, 12.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.
For Purdue to win they need to weather the early storm. The Hoosiers are desperate and are going to come out swinging early. The Boilermakers just need to play their game and be able to make it through that storm keeping hte game close/
