No. 24 Purdue @ West Virginia

Current Records: Purdue 3-0; West Virginia 5-0

what to know

The #24 Purdue Boilermakers will take on the West Virginia Mountaineers on Thursday at 10 pm ET at Veterans Memorial Coliseum. These two teams look to continue the momentum of their previous victories.

Even if it wasn’t a dominating performance, Purdue beat the Marquette Golden Eagles 75-70 last Tuesday. The Boilermakers can attribute much of their success to center Zach Edey, who posted a double-double with 20 points and 13 rebounds to go along with three blocks. That makes it three straight games in which Edey has had at least 11 rebounds.

Meanwhile, it all worked out for West Virginia at home against the Pennsylvania Quakers last week as the team clinched a 92-58 victory. Four Mountaineers players scored in double figures: guard Erik Stevenson (21), guard Kedrian Johnson (11), guard Joe Toussaint (11) and forward Tre Mitchell (11). Stevenson had some trouble finding his footing against the Morehead State Eagles last Tuesday, so this was a step in the right direction. Erik Stevenson’s points were the most he has had all year.

Barring any beaters, the Boilermakers are expected to win a close contest. Now might not be the best time to play Purdue against the spread, as they have been disappointing punters for the past two straight games.

Purdue is now a perfect 3-0 while the Mountaineers sit at 5-0. A couple of numbers to keep in mind before we kick off: Purdue has been holding their opponents to a 35.10% field goal percentage, which ranks them 13th in college basketball. But West Virginia comes into the game with the 21st highest field goal percentage in college basketball at 50.90%. These opposing forces should make for an exciting matchup.
