What to Know
The Wright State Raiders have quite the challenge ahead of them as they're expected to be blown off the court. They are on the road again on Tuesday and play against the #6 Purdue Boilermakers at 7 p.m. ET Nov. 16 at Mackey Arena. Purdue should still be riding high after a big win, while the Raiders will be looking to right the ship.
Wright State came up short against the Marshall Thundering Herd last Friday, falling 96-88.
Meanwhile, Purdue took their contest against the Indiana State Sycamores last week by a conclusive 92-67 score. Purdue can attribute much of their success to center Zach Edey, who posted a double-double on 22 points and ten boards along with three blocks, and guard Jaden Ivey, who had 27 points in addition to eight rebounds.
Wright State is now 1-1 while the Boilermakers sit at 2-0. Two last-season stats to keep an eye on: The Raiders are stumbling into the matchup with the 17th most points allowed per game in college basketball, having given up 67.4 on average. But Purdue comes into the game boasting the 10th most points per game in college basketball at 71. So the cards are definitely stacked in their favor.
