The #11Purdue Boilermakers look to stay on a roll when the Youngstown State Penguins visit.
The Youngstown State Penguins were ice cold to start the year but went on a four game winning streak which came to an end in Saturday’s 60-56 loss to American. This was painful with the Penguins squandering a ten point lead in the second half. Both teams sank shots in the 44% range but the Eagles rallied on the strength of ten long balls. YSU struggled to find scoring with Matt Donlan and Cameron Morse netting 12 points apiece on 10-20 from the floor. Bobby Hain and Sidney Umude each scored eight points with Hain snagging a team high seven rebounds. Altogether nine players saw the floor and eight scored.

The Purdue Boilermakers have been very strong at both ends of the floor which is why they are 9-0 and threatening to crack the top ten. The Boilermakers are coming off an 80-53 win versus Indiana-Purdue on Monday in which they took an eight point lead at the break and pulled away over the final 20 minutes. Purdue burned the nets at 52% while holding the Jaguars to under 33% while sinking eleven more free throws. AJ Hammons led five DD scorers with 14 points followed by a 13 point effort from Kendall Stephens. Caleb Swanigan added eleven points and grabbed 14 rebounds while Isaac Haas and Vince Edwards tossed in ten points apiece.
The over is 9-3 in the Penguins last 12 non-conference games and Youngstown State are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 road games while the over is 27-10 in their last 37 Saturday games. The over is 6-2 in Purdue’s last 8 vs. Horizon League and Purdue are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 games overall while the under is 13-5 in their last 18 home games. My feeling is Purdue decides how much they win by which could be 20 or could be 30…
