Ohio State storms back to upset Purdue

Ohio State storms back to upset Purdue

Michigan State and Purdue will need help to catch them. The win moved the Buckeyes into a tie with the Boilermakers for first place in the Big Ten. They now go on the road after a loss for the first time this season.

The Boilermakers coach on bouncing back from the Ohio State and facing the challenge of the No. 4 Spartans. It hasn't been the best though. Let's hope, the Big Ten rivals that trail behind don't make a comeback. The Buckeyes certainly deserve their first-place holding in the Big Ten. Jalen Brunson is one of the top players in the nation, and he has superb numbers with a scoring average of 19.8 points per game and an exceptional 54.4 shooting percentage.

With this victory, Ohio State completed a sweep of its season series with the Hawkeyes. They almost did that Tuesday in a 96-93 loss to No. 4 Michigan State. Nick Ward, Jackson and Miles Bridges give Michigan State a long, athletic frontcourt.

Forget potential Big Ten championship preview. On the next possession, he hit a jumper, giving him 21 points for the game and knotting the score at 59 with 5:23 to go.

The Ohio State Buckeyes are for real. Finding a way to slow down the trio was tough for any opponent but even more so for the Spartans and their unexpectedly depleted front court. Jaren Jackson Jr. has been in double-figures six out of the seven games. He also grabbed three rebounds and only turned the ball over once. Nick Ward, Joshua Langford, Cassius Winston and Jaren Jackson Jr. are all averaging in double figures and quite hard to defend.

The Spartans are led by Coach Tom Izzo, who's been the head man in East Lansing since 1995. If you were to morph Carsen Edwards and Vincent Edwards into one person however, that would be your player of the year. He's got 61 made three-pointers for the season and contributes a little bit of everything. Also, not settling for the outside shots will be key. In order to do that, they must remain focused and avoid a letdown coming off their biggest win of the season.


The shot sent the arena into a frenzy, as the No. 4 Spartans won their most anticipated conference game over the No. 3 Boilermakers in thrilling fashion. How to watch, stream Purdue vs Michigan State: live stream, Start time, TV channel, odds, predictions Purdue vs. "I know a couple of times I heard some moans, like, 'What are you doing, you knucklehead?' And I looked at my staff and said, 'What are we doing?' But, we just stuck with it and I give them credit".

Yet Michigan State found a way to stay in the game. Ward and Haas will more than likely be matched up on each other because they both play around the basket. He played a career-high 30 minutes and was vital to Michigan State's defensive success. He's going to have to use that to his advantage. A lot of them have been starters at one point.

Purdue has a really good men's basketball team this season.

Michigan State has five guys scoring double digits per game. At 7-foot-2, 290 pounds, hed took entry passes deep in the post and finished over whoever Michigan State sent to guard him.

Wright said Booth, one of the team's top guards, is "still a few weeks away" while Paschall remains in concussion protocol and is "a number of days away at a best-case scenario" after missing his second straight game Saturday.

"So I think the people that you're talking about analyzing it missed".
