(AP) — Trey Burke and Tim Hardaway Jr. are the catalysts for a Michigan offense that ranks among the best in the nation.

They may face a tougher challenge against a Purdue defense that has put the clamps on the opposition lately.

The second-ranked Wolverines look to avoid a fourth defeat in the last five home meetings by ending the Boilermakers’ three-game winning streak Thursday night.

Burke (18.0 points per game) and Hardaway (16.4) are among the Big Ten’s leaders in scoring, helping power an offense that ranks among the best in the country shooting 51.0 percent.

Michigan (17-1, 4-1) also is among the conference leaders in 3-point percentage (41.0) and points per game (79.3).
