What to Know
The Chicago State Cougars are on the road again on Saturday and play against the Purdue Boilermakers at 2 p.m. ET at Mackey Arena. Both teams took a loss in their last game, so they’ll have plenty of motivation to get the ‘W’.
It’s never fun to lose, and it even less fun to lose 98-34, which was the final score in Chicago State’s tilt against the Eastern Illinois Panthers.
Meanwhile, in a sloppy game that saw the teams combine for 18 turnovers, the Marquette Golden Eagles took down Purdue 65-55. A silver lining for Purdue was the play of F Matt Haarms, who had 14 points in addition to eight boards and three blocks. Haarms’ performance made up for a slower matchup against the Texas Longhorns on Saturday.
Chicago State took a serious blow against Purdue when the teams last met two seasons ago, falling 111-42. Can the Cougars avenge their loss, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We’ll soon find out.
