RUTGERS: Last season: 15-18, ties most wins since 2012-13.
Who's gone: C C.J. Gettys, G Nigel Johnson (graduate transfer, Virginia), F Jonathan Laurent, G Khalil Batie, C Ibrahima Diallo.
Who's back: G Corey Sanders. The junior led the Scarlet Knights with team-high 12.8; F Deshawn Freeman. Athletic senior averaged 11.1 points in 33 games; G Mike Williams. The streaky shooting guard averaged 9.4 points. Fs Candido Sa, Issa Thiam, Shaquille Doorson and Eugene Omoruyi all played in 30-plus games last season but were minor contributors.
Who's new: G Soug Mensah. Junior college transfer will provide depth at guard. Freshmen F Mamadou Doucoure and C Myles Johnson give Rutgers big bodies up front. The 6-foot-9 Doucoure averaged 11 points, 14 rebounds and 3.0 blocks as a senior at Our Savior New American School on Long Island. The 6-10 Johnson played at Long Beach (California) Polytechnic High School. He had eight points, 10 rebounds and seven blocks against a nationally-ranked Chino Hills in the playoffs. Freshman G Geo Baker will get playing time.
The Skinny: Rutgers has not been to the NCAA Tournament since 1991, the year Pikiell started his coaching career as an assistant at Connecticut. The Scarlet Knights have been picked to finish last in the conference. Getting more than three conference wins the season would be an improvement. Making the NIT for the first time since 2006 would be a major success.
PURDUE: Last season: 27-8; lost to Kansas in NCAA Tournament regional semifinals
Who's gone: F Caleb Swanigan, F Basil Smotherman, G Spike Albrecht.
Who's back: F Vincent Edwards. The senior preseason all-conference selection might be the Boilermakers' best overall player. He can shoot (48.6 percent), score (12.6), rebound (4.9) and defend. G Carsen Edwards. As a freshman, the other Edwards ' no relation to Vincent ' led Purdue in assists (133) and was tied for the team-high in steals (36). This year, he'll be asked to increase his scoring average from 10.6 points. C Isaac Haas. The 7-foot-2 senior averaged 12.6 points and 5.0 rebounds in just 19.5 minutes last season. With Swanigan off to the NBA, Haas is likely to log more minutes if he stays out of foul trouble.
Who's new: F Matt Haarms. The redshirt freshman used last season to try and add strength. Now the 7-foot-3 Dutch native could fill the role Haas had over the last couple of seasons off the bench. If the Boilermakers play Haas and Haarms together, they could have the biggest front line in the nation.
The Skinny: Yes, the defending Big Ten champs lost the conference player of the year (Swanigan). But they are hardly bereft of talent. Painter has four starters and six of his top seven scorers back. With size, versatility, tournament experience and a team that knows how to defend, look for the four seniors to keep the Boilermakers at or near the top of the conference standings.
No. 13 Purdue pursues 10th straight win against Rutgers

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- After going undefeated in December for a second consecutive season, 13th-ranked Purdue looks to extend its nine-game win streak when it hosts Rutgers on Wednesday night at Mackey Arena.

The game will feature two of the Big Ten's tallest teams and will likely come down to rebounding.

Purdue (13-2, 2-0 Big Ten) capped non-conference play with a 98-66 win over Lipscomb on Saturday, outscoring the Bison 55-28 in the second half after leading by five points at halftime.

Purdue bested Lipscomb on the glass by a 49-29 margin despite its modest average rebounding margin of 4.8, which ranks ninth in the Big Ten and 79th nationally.

After the win, Purdue senior Isaac Haas, who stands 7 feet 2 and is widely considered an NBA prospect, emphasized the importance of improving on the boards heading into conference play.

"I feel like I've improved," said Haas, who averages 5.8 rebounds per game. "Going and getting it with two hands, and being able to step up and make those big-time rebounds that the team needs, but there's always room for improvement. ... Just locating the ball and the flight of the ball. Being able to keep both hands ready, and then just really going to get it. It's really simple, honestly."

Rutgers (10-5, 0-2) is coming off a 12-day holiday break, having lost 75-73 to Stony Brook on Dec. 22. The Scarlet Knights are seeking their first conference victory after losing their opener 89-67 to Minnesota on Dec. 3 before falling 62-52 to No. 2 Michigan State on Dec. 5.

"I'm excited about my team and the potential for it, but sometimes you've got to go through some rough patches to enjoy some of the good things," said Rutgers coach Steve Pikiell, in his second year with the school.

The Scarlet Knights are third in the country in rebounding at 44.6 per game and average 15.9 offensive rebounds per game, which ranks second nationally, but were outrebounded in both losses, allowing a season-high 23 offensive rebounds to Stony Brook.

"The rebounding has got me a little frustrated," Pikiell said. "I've got to do a great job with this group. We're in a tough spot right now. The last couple of games are not Rutgers basketball. It's my job to get us back on track."

The Boilermakers are 8-1 all-time against the Scarlet Knights and have won the last six meetings, but Purdue coach Matt Painter refuses to take Rutgers lightly because of its rebounding ability.

"They are going to grind it out against you, there's no secret about that," Painter said. "They've really upped their talent level. ... You have to be ready to play hard-nosed, physical basketball against them, and you've got to be ready to keep them off the glass.

"If they're getting a lot of second-chance opportunities, that's when they've had a lot of success."
