Purdue displayed fluent ball movement with cuts to the basket resulting in easy buckets and...

Yes, that headline is a bit sarcastic, but the Boilermakers made their way not only into the red zone today, but into the end zone a couple of times. Granted, one was in the final minute (again) but perhaps notable about that is that Austin Appleby got some fourth quarter snaps and tossed that last minute 44 yard TD to Danny Anthrop on fourth down (both Appleby and Anthrop are good...

Matt Painter is turning Purdue into his kind of team.
Purdue's coach sees more versatility and more scorers. Last year's most promising freshmen, center A.J. Hammons and point guard Ronnie Johnson, are on the verge of becoming centerpieces for the future. Practices are more competitive and there's a renewed emphasis on rebounding and defense.
