The Non-Exhibition, Exhibition Games: What We’ve Learned

319, 315, 351. Those are the three KenPom ranks of Purdue’s opponents thus far. I was tempted to write a recap of the Grambling State game, but decided against it because a.) They are the worst Division-I team according the Ken Pom and b.) There isn’t much to say about a 52-point win. Really, there isn’t much to learn about any of Purdue opponents thus far, so I’ll just...

It Begins!

The start of basketball season has made me as giddy as a schoolgirl. A lot has happened between the end of last season and the start of this one. Almost all of that has been positive, and for a program that has spent the last couple of years struggling, there’s some hope that this season will be different.   Tempering any excitement is the knowledge that for the third consecutive...

Kings of the Basement: Purdue falls flat against Northwestern, 74-65

Purdue couldn’t pull out a victory on Senior Day as Northwestern finished a season sweep of the Boilermakers with a 74-65 victory in Mackey Arena. Purdue clinched a last-place Big Ten finished for the first time ever…and, for the first time in Purdue history, both football and men’s basketball finished dead last in the Big Ten during the same school year.

Buckeyes survive and advance vs. Purdue

Ohio State- 63  Purdue- 61 Ohio State had Purdue’s number all season long. The Buckeyes topped the Boilermakers in convincing fashion both at home and on the road. However, the third time was nearly a charm for Purdue as the two teams met in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament. Fifth-seeded Ohio State would need to squeak out by the slightest of margins against the last...

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...

Five Key Plays: Michigan at Purdue

1) Michigan goes on 11-2 run in the second half to cut into lead We’re picking things up late in Michigan’s 77-76 overtime victory at Purdue, which is fitting given that the first half was one to forget anyhow. Michigan ran out of the tunnel after halftime to a 13-point deficit and after five minutes had gone by they had only cut into Purdue’s lead by two points. The above...
