Purdue lost its bid for a 20th consecutive win earlier this week, at home against Ohio State.
The Boilermakers stretched the nation’s longest winning streak through the Big Ten schedule and everyone agreed they would be a one-seed if Selection Sunday was that very day.
But Ohio State, which somehow still can’t get people to believe in what it’s doing, knocked the Boilermakers on the road by a point. The Buckeyes kept the game slow and low-scoring, which is what I expect MSU to do too.
This is a big game for a number of reasons. One is that this game potentially clears the way for Ohio State to win the Big Ten regular season championship.
If Purdue loses, OSU will have sole possession of first place with only one difficult game remaining, at Michigan. If Purdue wins, however, it remains tied and has a shot to pass the Buckeyes, who have the head-to-head tiebreaker.
Michigan State Spartans
Then there is the issue of a one-seed in the Tournament. No one has had Michigan State in the hunt ever since it lost its third game but it was just a third loss. I have a tough time believing Sparty can’t be a one if it wins this game and the Big Ten Conference Tournament.
If Purdue were to win, it must get back on the one-line. But if OSU wins the regular season championship and it or Michigan State wins the conference tournament, what happens to Purdue?
It’s all very confusing and it can easily cloud judgement when it comes to identifying the best team. I fully believe in Ohio State but I think its the third-best team in the conference, behind Michigan State and Purdue in that order.
They are likely to finish in reverse of that order at the end of the season, though. Still, I like MSU to win this game because it’s the better team and at home. I can’t offer any more of an explanation than that. It will be a tremendous basketball game.
