    Location: West Lafayette, IN
    Conference: B1G 10
    Nickname: Boilermakers
    Mascots: Boilermaker Special, Purdue Pete
    Last time out: Beat Rutgers

    Player to watch: AJ Hammons

     

    The book on Hammons has been NBA body with motivation problems. This year motivation hasn't been a problem for the 7' 240lb junior as he leads Purdue in scoring and rebounding while leading the B1G in blocked shots

     

    The Skinny

     

    This will be brief so read through the scouting thread.

     

    Purdue is this year's Nebraska: a team with a somewhat unexpected run that currently puts them tied for 2nd in the conference and a team with a schedule giving them a good chance at nabbing a spot in the dance.

     

    The Boilermakers are one of the longest teams in the nation and their defense inside the arc is best in the conference. Purdue does have some flaws such as turnover issues and lack of 3pt shooting. You can hurt the Boilermakers from the 3pt line but this obvious isn't a strength for the Huskers.

     

    We very well might see a loose and confident shooting Huskers team today who finally comes out firing on the road. It's probably not enough against a formidable Purdue squad at home

     

    Prediction: Purdue 62 - Nebraska 55

    Tough, but Winnable Game @ Purdue. Purdue is in a 3-way tie for 2nd place in B1G, coming off a 61-51 win over Rutgers. 'Junk-Yard Dog' defense is keeping us 'In-the-Game' while the offense sputters. We're starting to Find Our 'MoJo' on Offense - I Feel a Road Win Coming On!

    THE TOUGHEST PART OF OUR SCHEDULE IS COMING UP!!!!!!
