Purdue Fort Wayne vs Northern Kentucky Game Preview, Horizon League Tournament
Why Purdue Fort Wayne Will Win
The Mastodons are trampling through the Horizon.
It’s been perfect in February going 10-0 with an offense that’s nailing everything from three and a defense that forces lots and lots of mistakes.

Why Northern Kentucky Will Win
The Purdue-Fort Wayne offense couldn’t do much against the Norse D.
Northern Kentucky allowed ten threes to go down, but it did everything else right in a 59-59 win just before this Mastadon run got going.

Purdue Fort Wayne vs Northern Kentucky: What’s Going To Happen
The Northern Kentucky three point defense is just good enough.
Purdue-Fort Wayne might be shooting the lights out on the road lately, but it doesn’t do enough on the boards and it turns the ball over way too often.
The Norse will come up with more rebounds and a few more key defensive stops in what should be a bit more of a high-scoring battle than the first one.
