For starters

Indiana and Purdue meet at Mackey Arena. It's the 199th time the teams have played.

There are plenty of interesting matchups.

Purdue guard Terone Johnson will likely see plenty of Victor Oladipo. Johnson leads Purdue in scoring, averaging 13.5 points per game. Oladipo had six steals in Sunday's win against Michigan State. He normally defends the opponent's top player.

Purdue center A.J. Hammons is averaging 9.7 points and 6.3 rebounds. He is also averaging two blocks per game. Cody Zeller leads Indiana in scoring, averaging 16 points.

Purdue's D.J. Byrd and Indiana's Christian Watford could be X-factors. Byrd is averaging a Big Ten-best 2.9 three-pointers in conference games. Watford has reached double figures in scoring in 10 consecutive games.
