Penn State Nittany Lions Quotable
"It was our second court storm since I've been here," said Penn State junior forward Lamar Stevens, who averages a team-high 19.2 points. "This one meant so much because of every thing this team has been through. Our young guys have stepped up in a big way. To see those guys grow over time and come out with a big against a great Michigan team meant a lot to me."
Purdue Boilermakers Quotable
"We've just got to play better," Matt Painter said. "We had a chance to win this game. We put ourselves in position to win this game at halftime. So you learn from it and try to get better. Each guy has a different thing to work it. Even when you win games, you are trying to watch film and make improvements."
NCAA College Basketball Betting Trends
The Nittany Lions are 4-0 against the spread in their last four road games.
The Boilermakers are 5-1 against the spread in their last six home games and covered seven of the previous nine games they played overall.
I’m not laying double-digits against a team that just upended Michigan in conference play and the total seems to offer more value than either side. The under is 20-9 in the last 29 meetings between these two teams and is 12-4 in the last 16 meetings in West Lafayette. The under is also 7-3 in the Nittany Lions’ last 10 road games and cashed in six of their previous eight games coming off a win. On the other side, the under is 15-5 in Purdue’s last 20 games when facing an opponent with a winning percentage below .400.
