Michigan State vs. Purdue - Saturday Big Ten Basketball

Ohio-St-Purdue-Basketball-17

Four days earlier, Purdue led by as many as 14 in the second half at home against No. 14 Ohio State. There's a great mixture of team representation this season, with OSU, Penn State and Purdue all in the field from the Big Ten plus four teams from the state of OH to go along with IUPUI, Kentucky and Notre Dame.

"We've had an incredibly resilient group, and we're going to have to hope that continues", Holtmann said. When you look at it that way, it's a privilege for (his team) and I told them that. Defensively, Iowa basketball yields 78.3 points per game against the opposing teams. Cost them sole possession of first place in the Big Ten Conference.

Poor Hawkeyes defense, which has cost them all season, returned during the deciding stretch.

Third-ranked Purdue has a bit more at stake, though, than it might otherwise, coming off its first loss in more than two months, a wrenching 64-63 loss to 14th-ranked Ohio State decided in the game's closing seconds.

The plan was to get the ball to Big Ten player of the year candidate. Ohio State vs Iowa tv channel is on BTN. After trailing by as much as 14 in the second half, the Buckeyes stormed back to take a two-point lead with just over a minute remaining.

"A couple tips, a couple rebounds, a couple shots go out way, it's a different story", Purdue guard Dakota Mathias said. "We put ourselves in that position for those to affect us". Now, let me also cut the bench some slack, as Matt Haarms had the most playing time with only 12 minutes. The idea was to eliminate Purdue's shooters at the expense of letting the Spartans' big men battle 7-foot-2 center Isaac Haas on their own.

Paul Pogba most effective in Man Utd midfield three, says Danny Higginbotham
If our players continue the good work at Tyneside, I don't see why we can not return home with all three points. For me box to box means (gestures) box to box.

Ohio State showed that resiliency in the win at Purdue.

"I think we played pretty good", said Michigan State coach Tom Izzo. 1 Duke back on November 14 at the Champions Classic, and against then-No. The former five-star prospect from La Lumiere High School listed Purdue in his final five but ultimately chose Michigan State.

Per usual the Spartans' collective toughness is a defining characteristic, especially so now that post depth has gone from fatal flaw last season to consistent luxury now. Opponents shoot only 37.9 percent from 2-point range. "The key of the game was not turning the ball over".

"He came back to be in these kind of games and try to help us win a championship of some kind", Izzo said. He thinks his Michigan State team has yet to really hit its ceiling. Since hitting 55 percent (11-of-20) vs. Michigan, the Boilers hit 27 percent (5-18) vs. IU; 31 percent (7-22) vs. Maryland; 33 percent (7-21) vs. Rutgers; 33 percent (6-18) vs. OSU.

Painter said he initially believed Ohio State caused most of those errors. "That's a great quality to have as a coach, and that's why they're winning". "How you feel like you've made some mistakes, it's not a flawless world. That's the privilege and you guys have got to respond to it". He also grabbed three rebounds. Miles Bridges is leading MSU this season with 17.7 points and 7.3 rebounds per game while Nick Ward is adding 13.3 points and 7.5 rebounds per contest. Purdue has improved since the summer, but has never completely solved its vulnerability on the defensive glass. Carsen Edwards stemmed the tide with a driving layup that gave his team a four-point advantage with 11:07 left. Saturday's matchup may be the most critical one Purdue faces in that aspect. After spending some time there, Izzo moved to East Lansing, where he would be an assistant under the great Jud Heathcote for over a decade. The Boilermakers reached their destination Thursday night and practiced at Breslin Center mid-day Friday. If the Buckeyes manage to lose it will be because of a tremendous loss of focus.

Painter didn't ask his team for an overhaul. Purdue found out Wednesday those deficiencies, however infrequent or brief, can be devastating.
