Purdue vs Ohio State Match Preview

After an up-and-down regular season, No. 20 Ohio State opens Big Ten Tournament play Thursday night against a team that desperately needs a victory to keep any hopes of an NCAA Tournament bid alive. Purdue likely will have to win four games in four days to make it into the Big Dance after losing five of its last seven contests.

Ohio State enters the tournament as the seventh seed after overcoming a 2-6 start in Big Ten play by going 9-3 to close the regular season and finish in a tie for fifth with Iowa, Rutgers and Penn State. The Buckeyes have dealt with a limited roster because of injuries, including forward Kyle Young missing the last two weeks with a severe ankle sprain, and personnel issues. Ohio State and Purdue met once during the regular season with the Buckeyes rolling to a 68-52 victory Feb. 15 at Value City Arena. The Boilermakers won two of their last three games - at Indiana and Iowa - and remain 33rd in the NCAA's computerized NET rankings, ahead of Iowa, Penn State, Illinois and Minnesota

 

Ohio State (#19) vs Purdue

ABOUT PURDUE (16-15): In the final week of the regular season, Purdue posted an impressive win at Iowa but turned around four days later and lost at home to Rutgers in overtime. Purdue's strengths are defense and rebounding, but shooting can often be a problem (33.8 percent from the field and 24.1 percent on 3-pointers versus Rutgers). Trevion Williams (11.5 points per game) is one of two players who averages in double figures for the Boilermakers, who as a team rank 12th in the Big Ten in scoring at 68.2 points but have gone 14-2 this season when they've had a higher field goal percentage than their opponents.

ABOUT OHIO STATE (21-10): Kaleb Wesson was named second-team all-Big Ten this week after averaging a team-best 14 points and 9.3 rebounds per game during the regular season, but didn't play particularly well in Ohio State's 80-69 loss at Michigan State on Sunday. The junior forward finished with eight points and went 1-for-8 from the field while freshman forward E.J. Liddell came off the bench to score 12 points. The Buckeyes' postseason fortunes hinge on their guard tandem of Duane Washington Jr., CJ Walker and Luther Muhammad, who combined for 40 points, 14 rebounds and 15-of-27 shooting from the field against the Spartans.
