    Why Purdue can cover

    The Boilermakers hope for another big performance from Zach Edey, who set a career high with 25 points on 10-of-15 shooting in Saturday’s loss to the Spartans. The sophomore center’s previous best effort this season came against Wisconsin as he poured in 24 points, while grabbing 10 rebounds for the fourth of his seven double-doubles in 2021-22. Edey is second on the team in scoring with an average of 14.8 points and tied for first with 7.4 boards per game.

    Jaden Ivey is averaging 17.3 points per game to lead the Boilermakers. The sophomore guard has reached double figures in points in all but two of his 28 outings this season. Ivey is one of three sophomores in the nation that has registered at least 740 points, 210 rebounds and 125 assists in 55 or fewer career contests.

    Why Wisconsin can cover

    Motivation will not be a problem for the Badgers, who can clinch at least a share of the Big Ten regular-season title for the second time in three campaigns with a victory. They are led offensively by Jonathan Davis, who tops the squad with an average of 20.5 points and recorded a team-high 19 in Saturday’s victory against the Scarlet Knights. The sophomore guard was outstanding in the triumph over Purdue earlier this season, scoring a career-best 37 points and pulling down 14 rebounds.

    Davis, who also leads the Badgers in rebounding (8.3) and assists (2.3), has elevated his game when facing Wisconsin’s toughest opponents as he leads the nation in scoring against top-25 teams with an average of 25.3 points. Brad Davison is scoring 14.2 points per game to rank second on the squad. The senior guard went 4-for-8 from beyond the arc against Rutgers en route to 14 points, the third time in four contests he finished in double figures.
