Purdue Drops a Heartbreaker to Ohio State

Purdue Boilermakers forward Vince Edwards (12) shoots the ball as Michigan State Spartans guard Miles Bridges (22) defends during the first half at the Jack Breslin Student Events Center. Saturday's showdown between No. 3 Purdue (23-3, 12-1 Big Ten) and No. 4 Michigan State (23-3, 11-2) could very easily serve as a national championship preview. This is the only scheduled meeting between the schools.

Freshman Musa Jallow and sophomore Andre Wesson, both of whom average fewer than 3 points per game and shoot less than 30 percent from 3-point range, each hit three 3-pointers to help Ohio State rally from a 14-point deficit and hand Purdue its first loss in 2½ months. Is the swagger gone?

Ohio State's McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion will be a frequent destination for the Boilermakers over the next six weeks. Ohio State is 21-5 overall, 12-1 in the Big Ten and 13-11 against the spread.

The thing about Purdue is that they don't have one single guy who is in running to be Big Ten Player of the Year. During their second game this season, the then-No.

The Buckeyes are now ranked 22nd nationally with a 3-1 record to open the 2018 season, but they are coming off their best season in program history previous year.


Hall made his fifth 3-pointer with 1:01 left in overtime, giving the Cavaliers a 57-54 lead.

The Ohio State loss saw an inordinate number of bobbled balls, tipped passes or tied-up dribbles. Expectations are still sky-high in East Lansing. Now when Purdue wins, it's by eight, seven, four and two points.

Our advanced computer model simulated Saturday's Michigan State vs. Purdue game 10,000 times. And look what's happened: Purdue has blown nobody out, winning four times by an average of 5.3 ppg, and losing twice (to heavyweights Ohio State on Wednesday and Michigan State on Saturday). It also would help restore some mojo for a team whose chances to win-out look good with games left at Wisconsin, vs. Penn State, at IL and vs. Minnesota.

"I just took what he gave me", Bridges said of the Purdue defender who faded away from him ever so slightly in the closing seconds of a neck-and-neck Big Ten fistfight Saturday. A Spartan win there coupled with an Ohio State win would put the Buckeyes in position for an outright Big Ten regular season title with four games to play. MSU already has fallen at home once, getting beaten by MI, 82-72. He thinks his Michigan State team has yet to really hit its ceiling. It could have serious ramifications on the Big Ten title race. Nobody's going to beat Purdue easily, and again, it's entirely possible nobody will beat Purdue again. They'll have to figure out how to stop Isaac Haas and that will most likely be through double teams. It is an absolute must for Haas to avoid foul trouble if the Boilermakers want to win. The top scorer for the Spartans has been Miles Bridges. And Joshua Langford is a dynamic wing.

Purdue-Michigan State basketball game time, TV channel, watch online live stream (February, 10, 2018). MSU needs to dominate the glass, limiting second-chance points for Purdue while generating them for its offense. Minnesota is also now 7-4 and holds the tiebreaker over the Boilermakers. In fact, just four players scored in the entire game. "We are not going to be the best rebounding team in the country, but we can be better than we are now". And it cost Purdue in the loss to Ohio State, which grabbed not one, not two, but three offensive rebounds before finally sinking the winning shot in the waning seconds on Wednesday. Iowa's defense continued to stumble.
