What you need to know about Purdue
Purdue took its matchup against the Penn State Nittany Lions this past Friday by a conclusive 73-52 score. The Boilermakers can attribute much of their success to guard Sasha Stefanovic, who had 16 points, and guard Jaden Ivey, who had 14 points along with five rebounds and four blocks.
The Boilermakers shot 51.9 percent from the floor in the victory and were absolutely dominant on the glass, grabbing 37 rebounds compared to just 24 for the Cornhuskers. Another rebounding edge would give them a distinct advantage on Tuesday night against the Badgers.
