Purdue's living up to its No. 3 ranking and rolling over Wisconsin 39-22 at the half in West Lafayette. Carsen Edwards has led the Boilermakers with 14 points on 6-of-11 shooting. Whether it's the Boilers, Ohio State or Michigan State, the highest NCAA tournament seed from the Big Ten could be a very tough out in March.

Purdue has almost caught Villanova in BPI's latest ratings and rankings. The model, which predicts team strength going forward, is not buying teams like Oklahoma, Arizona State and Kentucky the way the AP voters are.

More on Purdue, the new favorite (19%) to win the NCAA tournament: the Boilermakers' BPI rating improved after dominating Minnesota yesterday and is now just shy of Villanova's rating. Purdue is also the favorite (53%) to earn the top overall seed in the NCAA tournament.
