Purdue is shooting up the Big Ten standings after defeating Ohio State and Michigan State this week. For most of this season Purdue was way too easy to defend with Carsen Edwards being the only consistent scoring threat. Occasionally the Boilermakers would get a decent outing from somebody like Ryan Cline, but there was never a consistent secondary scoring option behind Edwards. Against Michigan State, Purdue had five players score in double figures. That is very rare for this group. If that trend continues and the opposition cannot simply just contain Edwards, this is a Purdue team will stay right in the Big Ten title race under the very end. And move their seeding up in the process.
