The Purdue Boilermakers can win the Big Ten Conference men’s basketball regular season title outright with a win Tuesday, but the hosts − Illinois Fighting Illini − stand in their way.

The last times these two teams met at Mackey Arena in West Lafayette, the Boilermakers (26-3, 15-3) had to stave off a rallying Illini squad (22-7, 13-5), 83-78.

No. 3 (USA TODAY) Purdue has three straight wins under its belt, with Zach Edey dominating at 30.6 points and 11 rebounds per game. Meanwhile, No. 16 Illinois has also won three consecutive games, eclipsing 90 points in each contest and five of the team’s last six games.
