NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Northwestern
Can the Hawkeyes do what Wisconsin and Michigan State we’re unable to do, and win in Mackey?

After suffering a hard fought road loss at Maryland, the Iowa Hawkeyes bounced back for a big time home win over then #19 Illinois on Sunday, marking their fifth win over a top-25 team this season. That ties for tops in the nation. Iowa also is near the top of the nation with seven quadrant one wins on the season.

On Wednesday, they’ll have an opportunity to add to that resume as they travel to West Lafeyette for a matchup with the Purdue Boilermakers. Purdue is unranked on the season, but they do come in at #39 in the NCAA’s NET rankings, making this yet another Q1 showdown.

Here’s your quick look at the matchup between Iowa and Purdue.
