Thursday night will be a hoops bonanza for Scarlet Knight fans as the men's team and women's team tip-off within an hour of each other. The men's game against Michigan State originally scheduled for Tuesday was moved to Thursday night on BTN, while the women's game will resume in-progress as soon as Eddie Jordan finishes up at the RAC. The ladies are currently in a tie for third-place in the B1G standings.

#22 Rutgers Scarlet Knights (14-5, 5-3) @ Purdue Boilermakers (10-10, 3-6)

Thursday, January 29 - 7:00 PM

Online stream: BTN2Go

TV: Big Ten Network (will be joined in-progress after men's game)

Radio: 88.7 WRSU Rutgers Radio

Rutgers matches up very well with Purdue. The Boilermakers are the worst field goal percentage shooting team in the Big Ten, while the Knights are athletic on defense and force opponents into low-percentage shots. The flip side is that a team that shoots well from beyond the arc can hurt RU, although that shouldn't be an issue tomorrow night. Purdue is not a great three-point shooting team, and they haven't attempted many three-point shots either.
