No player profile today, as there is no #72 (or #71) on the roster, but there is a mess of NBA Draft Boilermakings Notes to talk about. It is a bittersweet day for Purdue fans. We all wish JaJuan Johnson and E`Twaun Moore the best tonight, but it is still very sad to see them go. They'll soon join Brad Miller, Carl Landry, and the Custodian and World Champion Brian Cardinal in the NBA (with Chris Kramer too?).
I might have an OpenThread tonight during the Draft if there is interest. In the meantime, here are your Boilermakings for the day.
