Purdue (15-2) has won eight of its past nine games, including Saturday’s 95-78 victory over Penn State. Edey, last year’s consensus National Player of the Year, tallied 30 points and 20 rebounds in the win, his 10th career 30-point, 10-rebound double-double. Edey currently leads the Big Ten in points per game, rebounds per game, and field goal percentage.

Indiana (12-5) topped Minnesota, 74-62, on Friday behind forward Mackenzie Mgbako’s 19 points and center Kel’el Ware’s double-double (17 points, 14 rebounds).

The in-state rivalry between Purdue and Indiana men’s basketball teams dates back to 1901, with the Boilermakers leading the all-time series, 125-92.

Noah Eagle (play-by-play), Robbie Hummel (analyst), a three-time First-Team All-Big Ten honoree at Purdue from 2007-12, and Caroline Pineda (sideline reporter) will call tonight’s game live from Assembly Hall in Bloomington, Ind.

Tonight’s coverage begins on Peacock with the B1G College Countdown pregame show at 6 p.m. ET, featuring hosts Ahmed Fareed and Carolyn Manno alongside analysts Jordan Cornette, Josh Pastner and Aliyah Boston.

No. 2 Iowa (17-1) defeated then-No. 14 Indiana, 84-57, on Saturday, marking the Hawkeyes’ 14th consecutive win. Clark totaled 30 points and 11 assists against the Hoosiers – her 52nd career double-double – and has now notched at least 10 assists in five of her past six games.

Clark – the 2022-23 National Player of the Year – leads the nation in scoring (30.9 points per game) while averaging 7.9 assists (second in the nation) and 7.2 rebounds per game. Clark has 3,274 career points and could break the all-time Division I women’s scoring record (Washington’s Kelsey Plum, 3,527) this season.
