11-2 Purdue Boilermakers vs. Tennessee State Tigers 5-5
The 16th ranked Purdue Boilermakers will have one more game before their Holiday break as they will square off with the Tennessee State Tigers on Thursday night. This could be the 8th straight win for the Boilermakers as well.
The Purdue Boilermakers are led by head coach Matt Painter who has done a successful job turning this program around. Painter has had at least five eight straight wins in his coaching career at Purdue as he is looking for more.
In their last game, the Boilermakers would defeat the Butler Bulldogs by the final score of 82-67. This was the first time the Boilermakers were able to defeat the Bulldogs since 1999 as Butler beat the Boilermakers the previous five games.
After this game, the Boilermakers will return to action almost a week later, hence this game being huge to close out the holiday season with a bang.
Tennessee State Tigers
The Tennessee State Tigers will be looking for an upset once again as they nearly pulled off the first one of the season when they faced the Texas Longhorns in their last game. They would end up losing the game 47-46, but did gain some momentum heading into their battle against Purdue.
The Tigers could not stop a last second jumper by Matt Coleman as the Longhorns would get the one point lead with just five seconds to go. The Tigers were extremely impressive in this one as they also nearly led half the game.
The leading scorers for the Tigers in the loss was Mekowulu who finished with his fourth double double of the season. He finished the night with 15 points and 11 rebounds.
