Purdue Game Notes

Purdue center Zach Edey is one of the best players on one of the best teams in the country this season. Edey is fourth in the nation in scoring with 22 points per game and third in the country in rebounding with 13 per game. What’s more, Zach Edey is also blocking 2.1 shots per game and shooting an efficient 61.7% from the field this year.

Purdue’s second-leading scorer is freshman guard Fletcher Loyer. Loyer is posting 12.4 points per game and is shooting a respectable 36.2% from beyond the arc this season. The inside-outside combo of Edey and Loyer could be the difference in this game. 

Indiana Game Notes

The Hoosiers will be without point guard Xavier Johnson against the Boilermakers on Saturday. Johnson has a foot injury and will likely be out until mid-February. The status of Indiana forward Jordan Geronimo is also up in the air as he’s questionable with a left leg injury for Saturday’s game. Geronimo is averaging 5.6 points per game in 15.1 minutes per contest this year.

Indiana’s star player is forward Trayce Jackson-Davis. The 6’9” senior is throwing up impressive counting stats this year as he’s averaging 19.5 points, 11.2 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 3.1 blocks per game for the Hoosiers this season. If Indiana wins and covers this game it will likely be because of Trayce Jackson-Davis.

Purdue vs. Indiana CBB Prediction:

Purdue hasn’t lost a road game yet this season, but they’ve come quite close. The Boilermakers needed overtime to beat Nebraska by 3 on December 10th, only beat Ohio State by 2 in Columbus on January 5th, and beat Michigan State by 1 on January 16th in East Lansing. The Boilermakers have been dancing on the razor’s edge all season in conference play.

By contrast, Indiana is 11-1 at Assembly Hall this season. They’ve also been playing better lately as they’ve won 5 of their last 6 contests. The Hoosiers would probably be in the NCAA Tournament if the season ended today, but they would almost certainly secure their spot in the field of 68 if they were to beat the #1 ranked Boilermakers on Saturday. I think Indiana shows they have what it takes and they win this game outright at home.
