The Purdue Boilermakers are the top team in the Big Ten.

#2 Purdue faced off with #6 Wisconsin Sunday for the number one spot in the Big Ten. It was the Boilermakers who would leave Madison, Wisconsin with that designation, winning 75-69.

Lance Jones went 8-14 from the field and 3-7 from the three for twenty points, leading the Boilermakers in that category. Zach Edey would notch another double-double this season, having eighteen points and thirteen rebounds. Those eighteen points are the 74th straight game Edey has scored in double figures. As a team, Purdue had forty-two rebounds, twelve assists, and hit 78% of their free throws.

With the road trip win, Purdue now holds the top spot in the Big Ten, pushing Wisconsin 1.5 games back from them. The Boilermakers are also riding a seven game win streak ahead of their rivalry matchup with Indiana on February 10th.
