WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - No. 3-ranked Purdue looks to remain unbeaten in Big Ten play with a Wednesday contest against Maryland in Mackey Arena, tipping at 8:30 p.m. ET.

Brandon Gaudin and Seth Davis will provide the call on Big Ten Network. Larry Clisby, Rob Blackman and Ralph Taylor will handle the radio broadcast on the Purdue Radio Network. Fans can receive in-game updates on Purdue Basketball's official Twitter account (@BoilerBall) and live stats will be available on PurdueSports.com.

With a victory, Purdue will win its school-record 13th straight Big Ten game dating to last year. A victory would also keep the Boilermakers atop the Big Ten race, just ahead of surging Ohio State and Michigan State as teams enter the last month of the season.

Purdue is also looking to build on its 20-game home winning streak and the Boilermakers are 51-3 in their last 54 home games.

Purdue closes out the week at a vastly-improved Rutgers team on Saturday, Feb. 3.

Looking Back
• Purdue improved to 21-2 overall and 10-0 in the Big Ten with a 74-67 victory over Indiana. Purdue has now won three straight games against the Hoosiers and five of the last six games with Indiana.

Isaac Haas tied a career high with 26 points, five rebounds and two assists in a career-best 30 minutes. Vincent Edwards added 19 points, seven rebounds and two assists.
