Following a victory over Michigan on Thursday night, Maryland will hit the road for their toughest test of the season as they face off against #3 Purdue on Sunday afternoon. The Boilermakers currently hold a record of 18-1 (7-1), with their only loss coming by one point to Rutgers earlier this month. They've won their last five games, with two close calls against Ohio State and Michigan State.

 

Purdue is led by the enormous post presence of Zach Edey. Standing 7'4" and weighing in at 295 lbs., he leads them averaging 21 points and 13 rebounds per game. His size allows him to defend without fouling, and he's averaging less than two fouls per game this season. The Boilermakers also make use of their talented freshman backcourt pairing of Braden Smith and Fletcher Loyer. They make up one of the best offensive units in the country, shooting 46% from the field and 33% from beyond the arc. Unlike some of Matt Painter's teams of the past, this one couples its electric offense with some excellent defensive play.

 

Maryland hasn't beaten Purdue on the road since 2014-15, their first season in the Big Ten.

"I don't hate Julian Reese, but I do pity the fool.  He's going to get himself hurt!"

 

Seriously though...Reese has basically been completely outmuscled by bigger, stronger guys in the past.  I don't expect him to stop Edey but let's see if he can at least compete against him.

Playing well and staying in the game would be an achievement.

Edey might be the National POY.  Reese is like 6'9 230.  As Zack said, Edey is 7'4, 295.    That's like a 6'2 guy covering Reese. 

ESPN's Matchup Predictor gives MD a 15.5% chance of winning. 

That's basically... 3's are falling, MD is getting post points in transition, and getting to the line. 

I think I'd let Edey go nuts, and worry about everyone else. 
Go small and make him have to defend. Try and get some fouls in transition.

Edey played two minutes and they sat him?

Yeah, pretty weird. Got the one quick foul, but he averages less than 2 a game.

And Reese gets a 2nd, as he tried to block Edey's head.
