Georgia Tech looks to continue its winning ways on Wednesday, coming off a 65-32 win over Hofstra last week. The Yellow Jackets saw three finish in double-figures against the Pride, led by Lotta-Maj Lahtinen with 15 points. Nerea Hermosa and Lorela Cubaj each contributed 10 points with Cubaj finishing with a double-double behind a team-best 11 rebounds. Hermosa continues to lead the Yellow Jackets offensively, averaging 11.8 points per game through the six games.

Purdue is coming off a 66-61 win over then-No. 17/22 Florida State in the St. Pete Showcase for its first win over a ranked opponent since 2018-19. Four Boilermakers are averaging double-figure scoring numbers through Purdue’s seven games, led by Madison Layden with 13.0 points per game. Layden also leads Purdue on the glass, securing 6.1 rebounds per game.

Georgia Tech and Purdue will meet for the fourth time on the hardwood in program history. The Boilermakers lead the all-time series, 2-1, but the Yellow Jackets took the last meeting in 2017, also in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. GT last visited West Lafayette in 2012 for the Challenge with the Boilermakers taking the decision, 73-85.
