On Wednesday night, Purdue outscored Arkansas State 52-18 in the first half of their game and rolled to an 87-46 home win. Their defense forced 17 Arkansas State turnovers in that game while holding them to a 29.8 field goal percentage.
Through 10 games, the Boilermakers have averaged 77.3 points per game while only giving up 58.4 points per game.
