Purdue Continues Winning Streak, Blows Out Wisconsin 78-50

The game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday, January 16, 2018.

The Boilermakers sank 16 of 33 shots in the first half (48.5 percent), including 6 of 11 from 3-point range, to take a 39-22 lead into the break. One of Nebraska's largest advantages was getting to the charity stripe. "If they doubled him, we were going to move it".

No. 5 Purdue looked like the defending Big Ten champions, but the Gophers resembled a team still struggling mightily to compete without two starters in an 81-47 loss Saturday at Williams Arena. Purdue is 1-of-2 teams nationally to rank in the nation's top 20 in both field goal percentage and field goal percentage defense. The Boilermakers' mark was above their season average of 30.6, while the Golden Gophers' was below their season average of 34.0.


Purdue should have the edge on the offensive side of the ball. The Boilermakers answered by outscoring Minnesota 25-4, including a 15-0 run sparked by Edwards' 13 points. The Badgers will playing their third straight road game. Just over half of the Badgers' games have finished under the total. The 17-2 record matches the program's best 19-game start (1987-88, 1993-94) and the 6-0 conference record is the best since an 8-0 start in 1989-90. The Boilermakers have won 18 straight at Mackey. The Badgers are 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Purdue, 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings and the under is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. Wisconsin does not almost have the consistency or explosiveness that Purdue bolsters, meaning the Badgers will need an old-school performance to pull this one out with defense and a slow pace.

The Boilermakers rank 15th in assists per game (17.9) while the Badgers rank 178th (12.8).

Three players are averaging at least 9.4 points per game for Wisconsin, they are Happ (16.8), Brad Davison (12.1) and D'Mitrik Trice (9.4). The Wisconsin Badgers have lost four of their last five road games. Purdue is putting up 85 points per game this season while allowing just 62.7 per game. Happ leads in rebounds with 8.6 and in assists with 3.4 per game.
