Michigan State -2 vs Purdue
Tom Izzo and the Spartans travel to West Lafayette, Indiana, to take on the Big Ten leading scorer Carson Edwards and Purdue. The Spartans come into todays game on a 13 game winning streak, they have also won 12 straight Big Ten road games, with this win they tie the record for longest win streak in Big Ten this century. The Spartans come off a 15 point road win at Iowa Thursday. 2 key stats the spartans lead the Big Ten in are field goal %, and field goal % defense. They shoot 49.6% from the field in Big Ten play, while holding opponents to 35.7%, and just 25% from long range. Cassius Winston is the Spartans Floor General, and leads the Big Ten in assists per game with 7.3. Winston also averages 18.7 ppg, which is 2nd in the league. Nick Ward is another key player for the Spartans as he averages 16 points and 7 rebounds a game. Michigan State has 3 players that average 7+ rebounds a game while Purdue has 0. Purdue has won their past 4 games since losing in East Lancing. Purdue is scoring the 2nd most points per possession in Big Ten play only behind the Spartans. They have the Big Tens leading scorer in Carson Edwards who averages just over 21 points per game.
These 2 teams played back on January 8th, when Sparty was able to hold Edwards to just 3-16 shooting. Michigan State controlled the glass, out rebounding the boilermakers by 13 and winning 77-59. I am a little worried about the Spartans playing their 3rd game in 6 days, but they get a 6 day break after this, and Izzo has faired really well vs teams that only get production from 1 or 2 guys mainly as he has been able to shut down 1 player and make the rest of the team beat him. The Spartans play great defense and that always travels so they will be able to contain Edwards once again and get outta Purdue with the win.
