High fives from Purdue players

The Purdue Boilermakers will head to the Breslin Center in East Lansing, Michigan, to face off against the local Michigan Spartans for first place in the Big Ten.

Fresh from a commanding win over Nebraska Friday night, the No. 3 Boilermakers boast an impressive 16-1 record so far this season, including ranked wins over Ohio State, Duke and Gonzaga. I’m here. The Big Ten preseason favorite entered the contest on Monday, where he finished with a 5-1 record in the conference. The only loss came to an amazing Rutgers his team. Purdue is led by 7-foot-4 star center Zach Eady. Eadie, a frontrunner for National Player of the Year, averaged over 21.3 points and over 13.2 rebounds per game Monday. Freshman Fletcher Royer is his second-leading scorer for the Boilers, averaging 13.2 points per game and his 2.4 on his 3rd. Royer currently holds the all-time Purdue single-season record for three-point shots made as a freshman, and has scored several goals at Purdue this year, including a late go-ahead three in Purdue’s victory over Ohio State. I hit a big shot.

Michigan State suffered a crushing loss to Illinois on Friday. The Spartans won in Wisconsin ahead of Friday’s loss and played his last two games away from friendly range of his center in Breslin. Going 4-2 in the Big Ten, Speart could tie for first place in the conference if he wins on Monday, and winning seven of his eight games in recent weeks marks an improvement in recent weeks. is emphasized. Michigan State has had success with a balanced scoring offense. Three players (Tyson Walker, Joey Hauser, and AJ Hoggard) averaged over 10 points per game, while the fourth player (Malik Hall) averaged just under 9.9 points per game.

It will be the 44th time these two teams have met, with Michigan State leading the series all-time, 26-17, including a 15-4 Spartan advantage at home. Despite Michigan State’s overall dominance, Purdue recently won five of his last six meetings, and the Boilermakers won his 75-70 win in the semifinals of last year’s Big Ten Tournament. By doing so, we maintain our dominance.

The game is set for Monday at 2:30 PM ET. This weekday matinee will highlight Martin Luther King Jr. Day’s slate, featuring his three ranked teams, including Purdue University. The game airs on FOX.
