Two of the 4 ranked Big 10 teams clash on Tuesday with giant standings implications on the line as #8 Michigan State and #18 Purdue meet.
Both teams currently sit at 7-4 in the conference, which is good enough for 4th place. While the top 3 spots in the conference are a few games ahead, losing this one will take one of these teams back to the pack. The winner will have some solid separation going forward.
The Spartans have responded to their 3 game losing streak with 4 straight wins as they look to finish this season strong.
The good news for the Spartans is that they have one of the easiest schedules after this game. If they can steal a win here in Purdue, they’ll close things out with Ohio State twice, Penn State, Rutgers, Wisconsin, and a giant game against the Hoosiers.
Michigan State had little problem on Saturday as they took down the Wolverines 89-73, in Ann Arbor, as they simply outmatched and outclassed them from the opening tip.
The Spartans had one of their best shooting performances of the season as they shot 64% from the field and 63.6% from behind the arc as they hit 14 triples.
The Spartans went to their M.O. as well by dominating the boards. They’ve dominated the opposition this season in wins on the rebounding front and took it to Michigan by a difference of 15 there. They’ll need to do the same against Purdue here as the Boilermakers really like to crash the boards.
Purdue saw their modest 2 game winning streak come to a halt by the #4 team in the nation Maryland on Saturday.
The Boilermakers actually took a 30-27 lead into the break, but really labored on both sides of the ball, especially down the stretch. Purdue was outscored 25-10 in the final 6 minutes as they continued to miss from behind the arc offensively.
Overall in the game, Purdue shot just 22% as they made 4 threes to 14 missed.
It’s going to be up to A.J. Hammons here on Tuesday to really control this game for Purdue. On the season, Hammons is averaging 14.5 points per game, to go along with 8.0 rebounds. He comes in off a double double that saw him go for 18 and 10 in the loss to Maryland.
Hammons and the Boilermakers stingy defense that allows just 63.0 points per game will be the difference here if Purdue hopes to grab a giant home win.
