Iowa Men Visit No. 1 Purdue Monday Night

The Iowa men’s basketball team opens the Big Ten race on Monday night with a visit to top ranked Purdue.

The Hawkeyes are 5-2 and take on a Boilermaker team that is coming off a stunning upset loss at Northwestern.

That’s Iowa coach Fran McCaffery. Purdue 7-4 center Zach Edey is averaging better than 23 points and 11 rebounds and creates nightmare matchups for opponents.

McCaffery says they will need to mix up their defenses.
