Tonight at 7 p.m. ET: Indiana vs. Rutgers

Indiana (11-4) defeated Ohio State, 71-65, on Saturday behind forward Malik Reneau’s 23 points and seven rebounds.

Rutgers (8-6) look to snap a two-game losing streak after falling to Iowa, 86-77, on Saturday. Guard Derek Sampson led the Scarlet Knights with 23 points and eight assists in the loss.

Noah Eagle (play-by-play) and Stephen Bardo (analyst) will call tonight’s game from the Rutgers Athletic Center in Piscataway, N.J.

Tonight at 9 p.m. ET: No. 1 Purdue vs. Nebraska

Purdue (14-1) defeated then-No. 9 Illinois, 83-78, on Friday, marking the Boilermakers’ seventh consecutive win. Trey Kaufman-Renn led Purdue with 23 points in the victory, while Edey tallied his ninth double-double of the season with 10 points and 15 rebounds. Edey is averaging 22.2 points (fourth-most in the nation) and 10.6 rebounds per game this season after earning consensus Player of the Year honors last season.

Nebraska (12-3) enters tonight’s game having won five of its past six games after falling to No. 15 Wisconsin 88-72 on Saturday. Guard Keisei Tominaga, who paced the Cornhuskers with 17 points against the Badgers, leads the team in scoring this season (14.2 points per game).

Jac Collinsworth (play-by-play) and Robbie Hummel (analyst), a three-time First-Team All-Big Ten honoree at Purdue from 2007-12, will call the game live from Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Neb.

Wednesday, Jan. 10 at 8 p.m. ET: No. 3 Iowa vs. Purdue

The No. 3 Hawkeyes (13-1) are in first place in the Big Ten as they look to capture back-to-back regular-season conference titles for the first time since 1992-93. Iowa, winners of 12 consecutive games, defeated Rutgers, 103-69, on Friday as Clark recorded a 29 point, 10 rebound, and 10 assist triple-double, the 14th triple-double of her career.

Clark – the 2022-23 National Player of the Year – leads the nation in scoring (31.3 points per game) while averaging 7.6 assists (third-most in the nation) and 7.1 rebounds per game. Clark has 3,218 career points and could break the all-time Division I women’s scoring record (Washington’s Kelsey Plum, 3,527) this season. She also looks to become the first back-to-back National Player of the Year since UConn’s Breanna Stewart (2015-16).

Purdue (9-5) have won three consecutive games, including last Tuesday’s 77-76 victory over Rutgers. Guard Abbey Ellis leads the Boilermakers averaging 14.6 points per game this season.

Calling tomorrow night’s game from Mackay Arena in West Lafayette, Ind., are Zora Stephenson (play-by-play) and Kim Adams (analyst).

Tomorrow’s coverage begins on Peacock with the B1G College Countdown pregame show at 7:30 p.m. ET, featuring host Carolyn Manno alongside analysts Aliyah Boston and Meghan McKeown. Boston, a forward-center on the Indiana Fever and the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 WNBA Draft out of South Carolina, is in her first season as an analyst and made her broadcasting debut on Nov. 18 in the Citi Shamrock Classic women’s college basketball game between Notre Dame and Illinois.
