The North Texas Mean Green and Purdue Boilermakers face off on Friday in an NCAA Tournament college basketball showdown at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The North Texas Mean Green comes into this game with a 17-9 record overall and they were able to win the Conference USA tournament. North Texas has won four games in a row and they were able to beat Western Kentucky in overtime in the championship game. North Texas is shooting 69.8 percent from the field and 61.2 percent from behind the three point line. North Texas is shooting 47.5 percent from the field and 37.6 percent from behind the three point line. Javion Hamlet has been the best player for North Texas averaging 15 points while shooting 43.4 percent from the field and 36.2 percent from behind the three point line. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Purdue Boilermakers and they had won five games in a row before losing their last game against Ohio State. In that last game, they forced overtime, but they were defeated by nine points. Purdue is shooting 71.1 percent from the field and 66.3 percent from behind the three point line. Purdue is shooting 45.1 percent from the field and 33.5 percent from behind the three point line. The biggest issue for this Purdue team is at times they have been inconsistent, and that needs to be improved upon. Trevion Williams has been the best player for Purdue averaging 15.6 points while shooting 52.7 percent from the field but his free throw shooting could be improved upon.

North Texas is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall. Purdue is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games overall. The under is 10-3 in North Texas last 13 games overall. The over is 19-7 in Purdue’s last 26 games as a favorite. 

Even though Purdue has had all kinds of success, I still don’t trust this team to win in blowout fashion. Look for North Texas offense to be strong and that will be the difference as the Mean Green come away with a cover of the spread.
