We knew it would be a tricky schedule with five of the first 10 games away from the friendly confines of Mackey Arena, four of them against good teams. Today could be one of the trickier ones as we're going into a hype atmosphere. The Boilers need a win today at Eastern Michigan in the worst way so momentum can be built going into the conference season. Fortunately, Purdue played its best basketball of the season in its only true road game so far.
Today's game is an ESPN3/Watch ESPN game only available online, but I have found that the watch ESPN mobile app is quite nice. It worked well for the volleyball match last night.
