Purdue and Oregon State face off in New York.
The Boilers are back in New York after last night's horrific call and a win is in order. As I mentioned in the preview earlier today, Purdue needs at least 4 wins in these games against possible at large NCAA teams, so we might as well harvest one today. Getting a split in New York isn't bad since the Beavers will help build our RPI and strength of schedule once they get into conference play.
Purdue is entering today's game as a one point favorite, so we should expect another tight game at Madison Square Garden. I am very interested to see how this team responds, especially after a solid second half last night where the Boilers were in control for most of it. Your expected starters:
|Ronnie Johnson||Ahmad Starks|
|Terone Johnson||Roberto Nelson|
|Sandi Marcius||Angus Brandt|
|Donnie Hale||Eric Moreland|
|D.J. Byrd||Joe Burton|
