It’s nearly show time from West Lafayette as the Iowa Hawkeyes look to keep their hot streak rolling heading into a showdown with the Purdue Boilermakers. The Boilers will be attempting to break the Hawkeyes’ 12-game winning streak and extend on their own three-game winning streak.

In their last outing, Purdue narrowly escaped Rutgers with a 77-76 victory, fueled by Madison Layden’s impressive 19 points. Meanwhile, Iowa dominated Rutgers with a 103-69 win, led by another outstanding performance from Caitlin Clark who dropped 29 points in a triple-double effort.

Purdue comes into the night averaging 68.9 points per game, surpassing Iowa’s defensive yield of 66.6 points but falling well short of the 90.6 points per game the Hawkeyes are averaging on the year. The Boilermakers shine when they hit beyond the arc, making 6.6 three-pointers per game and holding opponents to 4.9. If Purdue hits its average from downtown, they stand at a 6-1 record.

Abbey Ellis leads Purdue in scoring with 14.6 points and 1.6 steals per game while Jeanae Terry adds 7.4 rebounds and 5.9 assists per game. Madison Layden is a three-point specialist for Purdue, hitting 2.5 threes per game at a remarkable 50 percent accuracy.

As the Hawkeyes aim for a lucky 13th consecutive win, the Boilermakers stand as the last line of defense in a clash that promises both intensity and excitement inside another sold out arena.

As we prepare for tipoff, here’s a quick look at the details for tonight’s matchup.
