Purdue's final road trip of the season may be the most difficult of them all.
Today is a tough one. Wisconsin is one of the few teams left that has a chance at winning at least a share of the Big Ten and they tend to not get distracted in the Kohl Center. Purdue has won here before, however. The Boilers are 2-2 in their last four visits with the two losses coming in tight ballgames that went down to the wire. Wisconsin always gives lessons in toughness and defense at home. We may even learn a thing or two.
