What to Know
The Purdue Boilermakers are 6-1 against the Wisconsin Badgers since December of 2015, and they'll have a chance to extend that success Tuesday. Purdue's road trip will continue as they head to Kohl Center at 7 p.m. ET to face off against Wisconsin. The Boilermakers might not be the betting favorite, but it's doubtful the players in their locker room care too much about that.
In a sloppy game that saw the teams combine for 32 turnovers, the Ohio State Buckeyes took down Purdue 68-52 this past Saturday. Forward Evan Boudreaux (17 points) and guard Jahaad Proctor (15 points) were the top scorers for Purdue.
Meanwhile, Wisconsin strolled past the Nebraska Cornhuskers with points to spare this past Saturday, taking the game 81-64. Guard Brad Davison was the offensive standout of the contest for Wisconsin, shooting 8-for-11 from downtown and finishing with 30 points and five boards.
Purdue is now 14-12 while Wisconsin sits at 15-10. Two defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Boilermakers rank 14th in college basketball when it comes to points allowed per game, with only 62.1 on average. But Wisconsin is even better: they enter the matchup with only 61.8 points allowed per game on average, good for 13th best in college basketball. We'll see if that edge gives Wisconsin a route to victory.
