College Basketball Purdue Boilermakers at Michigan State Spartans Start Time, Free Pick

Ohio-St-Purdue-Basketball-20 Purdue Drops a Heartbreaker to Ohio State
Cassandra Gardner | 11 February, 2018, 05:11

His hand rested on his knees. "We were having a tough time simply catching the ball and concentrating". Michigan State sits just one game behind.

Michigan State handed No. 3 Purdue its second consecutive loss as sophomore forward Miles Bridges nailed a clutch 3-pointer with 2.6 seconds left in the game to give the Spartans a 68-65 win. Two wins would have almost clinched the Boilermakers' second straight conference title. One rebound in the last 45 seconds, and Purdue most likely seals the win. Both in gut-wrenching fashion. Two ranked teams will get together out of the Big Ten with the Michigan State Spartans taking on the Purdue Boilermakers. If Purdue topples the Spartans and wins out-and OSU loses down the stretch-the Boilers would be sole Big Ten champs.

For the second straight game, Mathias was forced to hurl a Hail Mary down the court.

But his impact on the team goes beyond just those numbers.

It was the option Michigan State chose, and it used all that depth.

Sequestered to the campus Marriott at Michigan State a good day early due to messy weather, Purdue's dug in - in more ways than one - in East Lansing to prepare for the rare meeting between two top-five-ranked Big Ten teams, obviously with much on the line as both teams contend both a conference title and No. 1 seed to the NCAA Tournament. The Boilermakers saw their 19-game winning streak come to an end vs. Ohio State, which has won 11 of 12 games; the lone loss in that span came after Penn State hit a miracle 3-pointer at the buzzer that banked in. Turnovers have allowed inferior teams hang in with MSU, but we got a glimpse of just how good MSU can be when they take care of the ball.

"Give our fans credit", Izzo said.

Three other Ohio State players - JaeSean Tate (12.7), C.J. Jackson (12.5) and Kaleb Wesson (10.8) - are scoring in double figures. Musa Jallow, encouraged by Holtmann before the game to "let it fly", made three 3-pointers. "Our guys know and I've reminded them that this closing stretch - Purdue and Iowa playing very well and these games on the road - it's by far the most hard that I've faced and I think one of the most hard closing stretches in the league". He's fearless. Inside, the Boilermakers have a 7-2, 290-pound aircraft carrier named Isaac Haas who is unlike any player in the nation. But Painter called this one an "outlier" because of how much Purdue went inside to Haas. Bridges said it was the kind of moment that brought him back to East Lansing for a second season when he could have waltzed off to the National Basketball Association following an impressive freshman showing.

At times, the 7-foot-2 mismatch was every bit as dominant as he's been during a season in which he's shot 61.6 percent from the field.

A Jailbreaker Was Allegedly Behind Apple's IBoot Source Code Leak
That Apple has been quick to seek removal of the code from GitHub is also proof enough how important the code is for the company. That said, there are many who are claiming this to be the biggest leak ever in the history of iOS or even Apple.


It will be interesting to see how the Boilermakers match up against this new-look Spartans team, especially with Bridges at the three instead of the four.

Virginia trailed nearly throughout after the Hokies reeled of 17 straight points in the first half, finally pulling even at 35-all with Hall, Ty Jerome and Hall again nailed consecutive 3-pointers early in the second half.

"I just kept trying to make strong moves", Haas said.

"I was thinking to myself about Jud's last parting shot, it's up there in the video, was how do you want to be known?" Purdue is led in scoring by Carsen Edwards with 17 points per game. He also turned the ball over four times. Only twice have they shot worse from the field.

Izzo asked Bridges earlier this season to be "more of a jerk": to demand the ball and take over big moments. So the recent lull in shooting is unfamiliar.

This is a big game for Purdue. With four games to go, it will need some help to capture a share. The run included a nice dish from point guard Cassius Winston to Kenny Goins inside, Winston's seventh assist of the night.

Needless to say, Purdue's margin for error in East Lansing will be microscopic.

"We lost two games in a row and I think we responded well", Painter said.

Tom Izzo's team needs to add a big win to its resume. "There's a lot of basketball to be played".
