Purdue basketball vs. Alabama TV, radio, streaming

Purdue basketball heads out of conference play and offers senior center Zach Edey a homecoming when it plays Alabama in Toronto.

The No. 4 Boilermakers (8-1) split their early Big Ten games, falling to Northwestern in overtime and walloping Iowa. Edey (23.7 points, 11.2 rebounds, 2.9 blocked shots) leads Purdue, along with Braden Smith (11.7 points, 42.3% on 3-pointers, 6.0 rebounds, 7.1 assists, 1.6 steals), Lance Jones (11.0 points, 36.2% on 3s, 2.1 assists) and Fletcher Loyer (10.9 points, 38.5% on 3s).

The Crimson Tide (6-2), who narrowly miss out on the USA TODAY national rankings, are the nation's second-highest scoring team (94.1 points per game). Alabama is powered by Mark Sears (19.8 points, 51.5% on 3s, 4.6 rebounds, 4.2 assists), Aaron Estrada (16.1 points, 44.7% on 3s, 4.3 rebounds) and Grant Nelson (14.0 points, 94.4% free throws, 6.3 rebounds, 1.9 blocked shots). Big man Nick Pringle is expected to return from a one-game suspension.
