Texas vs Purdue Preview

This game will be played in a neutral arena. Both teams are going to look to advance to the sweet-16 round of the NCAA March Madness Tournament.

Texas Was Impressive In Round 1

In round one of the NCAA tournament, the Texas Longhorns sent home the ACC tournament champions, the Virginia Tech Hokies. They looked great throughout the entire contest and ended up winning by eight points.

They were able to get big contributions out of a few of their guys as five players on the Longhorns finished with double figures.

Andrew Jones led the way with 21 points.

Is Purdue A Bit Overhyped?

The Purdue Boilermakers are going to be coming into this one after an interesting season. They’re currently 28-7, but there are some questions about if this team is a tad overrated. They did end up taking care of the Yale Bulldogs in the first round as they won by an impressive 22 points.

Jaden Ivey did his normal thing by scoring 22 points and they also got other contributions from guys like Zach Edey.

If Purdue is going to want to find the success that some people think they can in this tournament, they’re going to have to rely on guys like Jaden Ivy to continue playing this type of level of basketball.

Free March Madness Picks – Texas vs Purdue

For this game, I really like the Texas Longhorns to win outright. I’m personally one of those guys who thinks that this Purdue team is a tad overrated and I don’t really think that they’re going to do that well this one. Texas had an interesting season that saw them beat a few high-level teams in the Big 12, but also get blown out against some of the high-level teams in the Big 12.

I think that the Big 12 has a slight advantage this year over the Big Ten.

I’m going to ride with my gut in this one and say that Texas takes care of business.
