Despite losing four of their final six games, Purdue ended the season as the Big Ten regular season champions. They bounced back from that skid by dominating Rutgers and Ohio State in their first two tournament games.
They've had success, thanks mainly to the play on defense. They are top four in the conference in opponent scoring (62.6 PPG), field goal percentage (41.6%), and three-point percentage (31.1%). They also lead the Big Ten and are twentieth in the country in rebounding with 38.6 per game. The Purdue offense has also been solid, ranking fifth in scoring (73.1 PPG), fourth in field goal percentage (46.1%), and second in assists (15.4).
Our player to watch is Zach Edey, who is tenth in the country in scoring (21.7 PPG), third in rebounds (13.0 RPG), and eighteenth in blocks (2.2 BPG). He is coming off a semifinal game where he scored 32 points and 14 rebounds. Edey was fantastic against Penn State this season, grabbing a combined 26 rebounds and scoring 48 points in their two meetings.
The Lions surprised many by beating Indiana to advance to the Big Ten Championship Final Game. While they won seven of their last eight games, their lackluster defense had many counting them out. Now they have beaten four of the conference's top teams in a row (Northwestern twice, Maryland, Illinois, and Indiana). It's impressive, considering their defense has struggled all season, ranking in the bottom half of the conference in opponent scoring (68.3 PPG), field goal percentage (43.0%), three-point percentage (34.1%), and rebounds (34.9 RPG).
The offense has been a different story. Though the Lions are seventh in the conference in scoring (72.4 PPG), Penn State is second in field goal (46.7%) and three-point percentage (38.8%). This is a result of the disciplined style of play that has them ranked second in turnovers (9.0 TO/G) and fifth in fouls (15.6) in the Big Ten. While the Lions won't overwhelm you on offense, they will make defenses work on every possession.
Guard Jalen Pickett is our player to watch on Sunday, averaging 17.8 points, 7.4 rebounds, 6.8 assists, and 1.0 steals. He was fantastic in both of their games against Purdue, and he dominated Indiana on Saturday for 28 points and eight rebounds.
Penn State has made an incredible run, but we see that ending on Sunday. Purdue is the better team, and Edey has the edge over Pickett in their matchup. Purdue does too many things well that Penn State doesn’t have the ability to match. Add that to the fact that Penn State has played three intense tournament games, and we see a tired Lions team getting run off the court.
We’re happy to give up the points to take Purdue to win the Big Ten Championship Title on Sunday.

I am a huge sports fan; locally, many know me as the guy who does the PA for our high school football team on Friday nights. Having grown up in Michigan, I am a sports fan of all the Detroit teams, and at the college level, I love Michigan State sports.More info on Caleb Tallman
