The No. 4 Purdue Boilermakers are coming off an exciting win, and they will look to keep things rolling when they head on the road for a matchup with the Indiana Hoosiers on Thursday night.
Purdue (15-2, 4-2 Big Ten) will go for their fourth consecutive victory after taking down the Illinois Fighting Illini on the road 96-88 in double overtime on Monday afternoon. The Boilermakers have the top offense in adjusted efficiency on KenPom, but their defense rates No. 64 in that category. Jaden Ivy leads the team in scoring with 16.4 points per game in addition to 5.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists.
Indiana (13-4, 4-3 Big Ten) won three of their last four games, and they knocked off the Nebraska Cornhuskers on the road on Monday. The Hoosiers are inside the top 15 in adjusted defensive efficiency but are barely inside the top 75 offensively. Their top player is Trayce Jackson-Davis, who is averaging 19.5 points and 9.1 rebounds per game.
