Everyone loves a good Cinderella story. The St. Peter’s Peacocks defeated Kentucky and Murray State to make the Sweet 16 against the Purdue Boilermakers. Despite all of the upsets by St. Peter’s, Purdue is still a massive favorite and deservingly so.

St. Peter’s is playing out of its minds right now but has been a below-average offense this season. The Peacocks are shooting 35.1% from downtown but just 46.1% from inside while turning the ball over 20.6% of the time.

Sometimes when you play harder than your opponent, good things happen. But ultimately, the Peacocks foul a lot on the defensive end and shoot poorly inside the arc on the offensive end.

Purdue is limiting fouls, getting to the line at a high rate, and dominating the offensive and defensive glass. The Peacocks were able to fight the bigs on Kentucky and Murray State, but I don’t see the Peacocks having any success against Purdue inside the arc. And that’s where St. Peter’s loves to play. Inside.

Give me Purdue to get the big win by double digits.
