We are live at Bankers Life Fieldhouse today as Purdue takes on Notre Dame in the 2012 Crossroads Classic. The Boilers should expect a hostile environment today as there is a large pro-IU crowd here. it remains to be seen how many will stick around for today's second game. At least Butler is competing with IU so far.
I have a short video preview I shot on my way to the Fieldhouse. I don't know if it will make a difference or not, but the Boilers need a win today and some positive momentum.
