How to Watch

When: Tuesday, February 12 at 6:30pm EST

How (TV/Radio): Big Ten Network

Purdue Boilermakers (Away)

Head Coach: Matt Painter {Overall: 17-6, .739 W-L% | Conference: 10-2, 2nd in Big Ten }

After a rocky start to the season, the Purdue Boilermakers have been one of the hottest teams in the country, having won their past eight games and eleven of their past twelve. They could extend the win streak to nine if they sweep the season series with Maryland, whom they narrowly beat 62-60 at Mackey Arena on December 6th.

Purdue enters this matchup after taking out the Nebraska Cornhuskers 81-62 at home. The Boilermakers were led by their Big Ten Player of the Year candidate, Carsen Edwards, who poured in 27 points. On the other end of the floor, Purdue was anchored by 7-3 Dutchman, Matt Haarms, who swatted four shots in the the contest.

Maryland Terrapins (Home)

Head Coach: Mark Turgeon {Overall: 18-6, .750 W-L% | Conference: 9-4, T-4th in Big Ten }

The Maryland Terrapins will come into this game well rested, having not played since their game against Nebraska on February 6th, where they won 60-45 in Lincoln. The rest should be of good use as they look to avenge their close loss to Purdue.

The Terps beat Nebraska despite leading scorer Anthony Cowan Jr. putting up just five points on 2-10 shooting. Cowan’s struggles did not sink his team, however, as Maryland’s pair of 6-10 underclassmen Jalen Smith and Bruno Fernando contributed double-doubles. Smith poured in 18 points to go along with 11 rebounds, while Fernando chipped in with 13 points and 19 boards.

Head-to-Head: Ryan Cline vs Eric Ayala

Ryan Cline

Shooting Guard | 6-6 195lb (198cm, 88kg) | Carmel HS | Carmel, IN | Senior

12.9 PPG | 3.3 APG | 2.5 RPG | 0.7 SPG | 0.1 BPG | 1.3 TOV | .445 FG% | .442 3P%

Eric Ayala

Shooting Guard | 6-5 205lb | IMG Academy | Wilmington, DE | Freshman

8.9 PPG | 2.4 APG | 2.6 RPG | 0.3 SPG | 0.3 BPG | 1.8 TOV | .457 FG% | .476 3P%

This matchup focuses on two three point marksmen who are shooting well above a 40% clip, and provide their teams with a threat that must be monitored on the defensive end.

After starting just seven of his first 103 games through three years in West Lafayette, Ryan Cline has finally been rewarded with a spot in the starting line-up. Much of that has to do with his prowess as a sharpshooter, as his 73 made threes ranks second in the Big Ten behind his teammate Carsen Edwards.

Like his counterpart, Eric Ayala has quickly proven to display deadly accuracy beyond the arc. It should be noted, however, that his volume pales in comparison to Cline’s, as he has yet to have a double digit attempt game, whereas Cline has had five such games this season. Nevertheless, Ayala’s shooting ability has provided much needed spacing for Maryland’s other scorers to operate.
