Purdue is in the middle of another dominant regular season, and the Boilermakers stand poised to potentially grab the No. 1 overall seed when March Madness rolls around.

Entering the weekend, Purdue is 24-3 this season with a 13-3 league record and a 2.5-game lead in the B1G standings. The Boilermakers have just 4 games left to solidify back-to-back regular-season titles in the B1G.

Purdue’s 3 losses this season have all come on the road, but Matt Painter’s squad has avoided the snowball effect every time. Most recently, the Boilermakers rebounded from a stunning loss to Ohio State by blowing out Rutgers in West Lafayette.

Entering the weekend, ESPN’s Joe Lunardi updated his latest bracketology, and he has Purdue projected as the top seed in the NCAA Tournament. UConn, the latest No. 1 team in the AP Poll, dropped a road game to Creighton to weaken the Huskies’ hold on the top spot.

Purdue has just about wrapped up another dominant season and will look to make it back-to-back seasons with regular-season and Big Ten Tournament titles for the program. Zach Edey continues to lead the way, and fans can track all the odds for the B1G Tournament at ESPN Bet.

The Boilermakers also captured a No. 1 seed (though not the No. 1 overall seed), but that seeding did not ultimately benefit Purdue. The team was stunned in a Round of 64 upset as Fairleigh Dickinson delivered a historic upset to add to a string of March misery for the program. We’ll see if this year’s team has grown and can use the previous heartbreak to carve out a deep run.

As for the rest of the B1G, Lunardi projects 6 teams from the conference to reach the NCAA Tournament with Northwestern and Nebraska still on the bubble. Both of those teams are squarely projected in the final field, but they will need to avoid any letdown to finish out the regular season.
