This is only the second time that Purdue and Vermont have met on the basketball court. The first time was the second game of the 2015-16 season when Purdue won 107-79 in West Lafayette. Dakota Mathias was one of six player sin double figures with 17 points as Purdue hit a school record 18 three-pointers. it was one of two times where Purdue hit 107 points, the other coming at Rutgers later in the season.
Ernie Duncan, Everette Duncan, and Josh Speidel are Indiana residents on the Vermont roster, so this game will have a local flavor.
