Game NotesGame Notes
Indiana (12-5, 4-2 Big Ten) is looking for its first true statement win of the year after a disappointing run in nonconference play. There was a recent shakeup with the starting lineup with Gabe Cupps replacing a healthy Xavier Johnson against Minnesota following the latter’s ejection against Rutgers
Indiana has a great deal of talent in its starting lineup with former five-stars Kel’el Ware and Mackenzie Mgbako at the five and three with high four-star Malik Reneau running the four. The Hoosiers are 3-1 against the Boilers under head coach Mike Woodson.
Purdue (15-2, 4-2 Big Ten) recently fell to No. 2 in the AP Poll after an upset loss to Nebraska on the road before handling Penn State at home. Last year’s NPOY, Zach Edey, is back and dominant as ever.
The Boilers have been bolstered this year by an uptick in 3-point shooting and transfer guard Lance Jones, who dominates the fastbreak on offense and gives Purdue the kind of on-ball defense it lacked last year.
KenPom likes the Boilers by 11 in this one.
