4. Purdue Boilermakers (7-2)

  • Best win: vs. Auburn
  • Worst loss: at Louisville

There is no question the Boilermakers hold one of the most talented front courts in the conference, if not the country. Their lone losses on the season came to the now-number one ranked Villanova Wildcats and on the road at Louisville. While talented and holding onto “good” losses, the Boilers are still in search of that marquee win, which they can get another opportunity at next Saturday when they host undefeated Notre Dame.

The Boilermakers currently sit as one of just three ranked Big Ten teams.
