2017 NCAA Tournament Purdue vs. Iowa State game preview
Purdue won the Big Ten regular season championship thanks in large part to forward Caleb Swanigan, who was the Big Ten player of the year as he averaged 18.4 points, 12.6 rebounds and 2.9 assists. Swanigan currently has 28 double-doubles.
The Boilermakers also posses another skilled big man in the form of 7-foot-2 Isaac Haas. This should give Purdue a rebounding advantage over the much smaller Cyclones. Purdue also has a total of five players who average double figures.
Iowa State is led by point guard Monte Morris, who boasts the nation’s best assist-to-turnover ratio (5.33) in the country. Morris also leads the team in scoring as he averages 16.4 points per game.
The Cyclones won the Big 12 Tournament and continued their hot streak against Nevada. As a team, Iowa State hits 40 percent of its 3-pointers, meaning the game will be an interesting clash of styles. Purdue gets more of its points at the rim, while Iowa State relies on its outside shooting for offense. The winner of this game could potentially face Kansas in the Sweet 16. The Jayhawks are the No. 1 seed in the Midwest Region.
