Purdue-Calumet leaders: Kaspars Brencans (12.8 ppg), Danny Paschen (7 rpg), Noah Allen (4.4 apg)

Key matchup: Luis Jacobo’s season debut in Texas last weekend was a Texas-size hit.

His doppelganger on the Calumet side is Kaspars Brencans, a 6-7 junior out of Riga, Latvia, who’s led Calumet in scoring in two of its five games and also averages 4 rebounds while shooting 61.4 percent from the field. Look for Noah Allen and Pierre Bland to square off at point guard, too; Bland averages 9.4 points in addition to his 4.8 assists per, and Allen is Calumet’s second-leading scorer with an 11.6 average.

The skinny: IPFW is 2-0 since Jacobo joined the lineup. … Steve Forbes continues to be an effective space eater in the paint, averaging 12.2 points and 3.8 rebounds with five blocked shots. … Joe Reed is averaging 10.8 points and 6.2 rebounds off the bench. … Calumet has two players from Fort Wayne on its roster: 6-8 Jaime Burkhard from Northrop and 6-1 Devin Jones from South Side. … Calumet has 17 players on its roster from Indiana, nine from northwest or northern Indiana.
