These are two teams going in complete opposite directions in the Big Ten. Nebraska is free-falling, a loser of six in a row, including by 15 points at home the last time out against Maryland.
Isaac Copeland is out and will be out for the rest of the season. Since the ‘Huskers got that news about one of their two best players, they haven’t been able to bounce back.
Copeland was having a fantastic season, scoring 14 points on 52.5 percent shooting from the field with about five boards a game, to boot.
Now the onus all falls on James Palmer Jr. and he just hasn’t been able to translate big scoring numbers into wins. He went 2-for-13 from the field against Maryland this week.
Purdue, meanwhile, has won seven in a row with point totals in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, after a slow start, when Nebraska was racking up all of its wins.
Carsen Edwards was named one of 10 finalists for the Bob Cousy Award, given to the nation’s best point guard. Edwards is more of a scorer than a traditional point guard, though Cousy did some scoring himself, too. Edwards is averaging 24.5 points per game and between three and four dimes.
Taking just Big Ten play, which is when Purdue has started coming on, no team in the conference has shot more threes than the Boilermakers, who are hitting 39 percent of them. That’s mostly Edwards and Ryan Cline, who combine to shoot 18 per game.
