Purdue needs a victory over Northwestern in order to reach the postseason somewhere.
Is today the last day that Purdue gets a win in the 2012-13 season? Does Purdue get a win against a depleted team that is having trouble scoring points? Will there be some heart from a Purdue team that hasn't played with much heart for almost a month now?
This is what we will find out tonight. In a rare Sunday evening start Purdue faces Northwestern in what is pretty much a must win game for the Boilermakers. Let's get it done and turn this around.
