Purdue is definitely the best team in the Big Ten this season. They could work up to a top seed if they close strong.
Michigan looks like a tournament team and a win here would probably certify it.
Purdue is one of the most physical teams in the country, playing a traditional inside out style.
Purdue has won six straight and it proving that it can both dominate and win ugly. A good sign for postseason success.
This is one of the most efficient offensive teams in the country. They are in the top 30 in FG%, FT% and 3PT FG% where they are fifth.
The big reason for that is that they get nice open looks due to the inside play of Caleb Swanigan. The big guy averages 18 and 12 but also can make outside shots – 46% from three.
As big as Biggie is he is not even the biggest Boilermaker. That would be Isaac Haas. The seven footer is second on the team in scoring and rebounding. Sometimes they are awesome on the floor together and sometimes not.
On the perimeter the Boilermakers are underrated. They have 4 different players that shoot better than 40% from deep and Dakota Mathias is getting more comfortable in the PG role.
Vince Edwards looks like an NBA small forward and his fire is critical to the team’s overall performance. This team has everything you need.
Michigan looks good at time but they often leave me wanting more. They are a threat though because some nights they can really shoot it.
Michigan is also an efficient offensive team but not as much so as Purdue and definitely different as they do not have much of an inside game. Pretty much by default Derrick Walton has become the leading scorer. I like his aggressiveness and he is a tough cover.
I write this or every Michigan game but Zak Irvin is the key. He can be a dangerous scorer.
This game has a lot more meaning for Michigan and they do have a nice home environment that could be advantageous.

Free Purdue Boilermakers vs. Michigan Wolverines NCAAB Prediction:
Surprised that Purdue is not the favourite. This looks like a good matchup for them, even on the road.
Michigan is not a good defensive team and I don’t think they are going to be able to handle Purdue inside.
