Matt Painter's Boilermakers will square off against Travis Ford's Cowboys in the opening game of the 2013 Old Spice Classic, with tip-off set for Noon ET. Ben Love has Scout.com's latest coverage live from Orlando inside.

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A pair of undefeated teams will tip off action in the 2013 Old Spice Classic Thursday at Noon ET, when No. 5 Oklahoma State (4-0) meets Purdue (5-0).

The Pokes will be without freshman guard Stevie Clark, the team's leading assist man who sat out OSU's Monday night win at USF and then was suspended by coach Travis Ford on Tuesday.

Aside from that, both teams should be at full strength for this afternoon's game, televised live on ESPN2. I'll have plenty of postgame coverage from HP Field House and, to follow my live thoughts during the game, CLICK HERE to sync up with my Twitter account.
