Thanks, Seniors.

This has been a tough couple of years for Purdue's basketball program...and while too many Purdue fans have laid blame at the feet of the Senior class, you won't hear me do that. A few years ago, Painter had a few recruiting misses...make no mistake, Terone Johnson wasn't one of them. Out of Indianapolis, North Central, Johnson was the 51st-best player in the nation according...

Purdue loses guard with season-ending knee injury

Purdue guard Sterling Carter will miss the rest of the season with a season-ending knee injury. Coach Matt Painter issued a statement Monday saying that Carter, a senior, had torn the ACL and medial and lateral menisci in his right knee during Sunday's 76-57 loss at Nebraska. The injury occurred when Carter was making a drive to the basket. Carter was averaging 4.8 points in 15...

Video Breakdown: Examining four straight losses (and two wins) -- OFFENSE

Hi! So, everyone’s in a good mood after that Minnesota win, right? Nobody wants Coach Painter fired anymore? Oh…right. Ok. No need to yell. Sorry. Regardless, I thought the Minnesota game was absolutely a step in the right direction. We struggled in the opening five minutes, but then played ~33 very good minutes of Purdue basketball. Sterling Carter and AJ Hammons injected life...

Player apathy takes over as Purdue falls at Penn State, 79-68

Hey! That sucked! Purdue travelled to the Bryce Jordan center and found a way to lose in familiarly frustrating fashion, 79-68. Both teams have three Big Ten wins, but seem to be moving in drastically different directions. The Nittany Lions suddenly looks dangerous on a three-game winning stream (including a win over #23 OSU), while the Boilermakers dropped their fourth consecutive...

Five Key Plays: Purdue at Michigan

1) Purdue goes on 11-0 run midway through the first half with steals, attacking the basket Michigan jumped out to an early lead in its eventual 75-66 win over Purdue at the Crisler Center on Thursday night. How did the Wolverines extend the lead to 10 by the 11:18 mark? Simple: they hit four threes while Purdue couldn’t get much of anything going. That changed when Michigan missed...

One good half isn't enough: Purdue falls to Wisconsin 72-58

Gah. Purdue’s weak second half cost them today, as they fell 72-58 to #9 Wisconsin in Mackey Arena. This is only Wisconsin’s third win in West Lafayette, but that factoid doesn’t make me feel better. Those tuxedo t-shirt warmups , however, were pretty sweet. Below the break for more. Warning: it's aggravating. Wisconsin opened the game attacking Purdue’s lackluster...

Video Breakdown: Holiday Edition

Videos! Gifs! Pictures with giant red arrows! I know I’ve left you without any posts for way too long, and I promise to make up for it. The last Video Breakdown was right after the Butler game, and with all due respect to UMES….yeah I’m not going to rewatch that game. So, for today’s Video Breakdown: Holiday Edition, let’s focus on the last four games: at West Virginia...
