After delivering a blow to the chin of the Northwestern Wildcats on New Year’s Day, the Ohio State basketball team returns home to face the No. 1 Purdue Boilermakers on Thursday night. The matchup could have been even more significant had the Boilermakers not fallen to Rutgers in West Lafayette last time out.
Still, it’s a battle of two ranked teams, and two teams that have a shot at being at or near the top of the league as the season wears on. At 2-0 in the league, Ohio State is just one of three teams yet to lose a game in the conference (Michigan and Wisconsin are both 3-0) but will have a massive challenge going against the size, skill, and depth of this Purdue team in the Schott.
We know you are going to carve out some time to watch his intriguing litmus test for the Buckeyes, so we have everything you need to know in order to find the game.
