Guard Lewis Jackson could be a key for Purdue today against Indiana. The speedy guard could present some matchup problems for IU. He needs six assists to become the 10th Purdue player to have 400 career assists. Jackson and Ryne Smith have not lost to Indiana during their time at Purdue. No four-year Boilermaker player has ever finished his career undefeated against the Hoosiers.
Purdue has won the last five in the series, the longest streak since winning seven in a row from 1968-72.
