The Spartans and Boilermakers meet in the Big Ten Championship and it’s rightfully so as these have been the two hottest teams in the NCAA.
Both teams have caught fire down the stretch of the season and with the way both have played recently, either one of these teams could be in store for a deep tourney run.
Purdue has literally has had just a minute of problems in this tournament.
Throughout the entire tourney, the Boilermakers have trailed for just 1 minute and 10 seconds. Purdue had no problem with Michigan in the semi finals as they routed the Wolverines with their dominant inside game and their defense that continued to force Michigan into some tough shots and into turnovers.
Purdue’s AJ Hammons continues to be a fein as he finished with 27 points, 11 rebounds, and 3 blocks in the semi final win. He was the difference maker last time these two teams met too.
Purdue blew an 18 point halftime lead, only to hit a clutch free throw with just seconds to go to secure a win.
Michigan State Spartans
The Spartans may be the hottest team not just in the Big 10, but in all of the NCAA.
Michigan State continues to put up wins and with the experience this team has, who knows how far they can go.
The Spartans will try for another Big 10 Title behind Denzel Valentine, who has just missed a triple double in both Big Ten tourney games. Valentine also just missed a triple double in the last meeting with Purdue as he finished with 27 points, 8 rebounds, and 10 assists as he was the biggest part of the comeback that fell just short.
Regardless, the Spartans will lean on him heavily here in this one.
Look for rebounding to play a factor as well as the Spartans lead the nation with an 11.7 rebounding margin per game.
