Michigan State Spartans
The Michigan State Spartans have had a very up and down season so far. Right now they are on a up swing. They have won four of their last five games with their only losing coming to their rival, the Michigan Wolverines.
They come into this game with 16-10 record and sit in 4th place in the Big Ten Conference.
Although they probably have a tournament spot locked up, unless they suffer a big collapse, a win over Purdue would really improve their seeding.
Michigan State is pretty consistent when it comes to the offensive side of the ball. No matter win or lose they usually score right around 75 points per game.
The Spartans are led by Miles Bridges. He averages 16.2 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game.
This game is going to come down to the defensive side of the ball for the Spartans. They need to keep Purdue, who have a high powered offense right around the 70 point mark to win this game.
On the other side of this match up is the Purdue Boilermakers. They come into this game with a 21-5 record and sit in first place in the Big Ten.
They are tied with Maryland and Wisconsin for first place in the Big Ten, so if they want a shot at the regular season title they can’t afford a slip up against the Spartans.
Purdue comes into this game on a four game winning streak. Their offense has dropped off a bit as of late. Over the last five games they are only averaging 75 points per game, which is down from their season total of 81.
The Boilermakers are led by Player of the Year candidate Caleb Swanigan. He is averaging 18.7 points and 13 rebounds per game.
For Purdue to win it’s going to come down to the offensive end. They need to get this game back up in the high 70’s to be able to win.
