How to watch Maryland basketball vs. Purdue

This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

NCAA Basketball: Maryland at Purdue Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland men’s basketball will play a game outside the state of Maryland for the first time all season Thursday night. The No. 23 Terps head out to West Lafayette, Indiana, to take on the unranked Purdue Boilermakers.

Maryland is coming off of a 66-59 win against the Penn State Nittany Lions in its first conference game of the season. The Terps entered halftime down by one, but late-game heroics from Anthony Cowan Jr. helped propel Maryland to the win.

The Boilermakers are coming off of two straight losses, both against ranked teams. They fell 73-72 to the then-No. 15 Florida State Seminoles, and lost in blowout fashion 76-57 to then-No. 7 Michigan. Purdue’s three losses have all come to ranked teams, causing the Boilermakers to drop out of the top 25 this week.

The numbers

No. 23 Maryland: 7-1, 1-0 Big Ten

Purdue: 5-3, 0-1 Big Ten

All-time series: Purdue leads 4-2

Odds: Purdue is favored by 6.5 points
