Thank you, D.J. Byrd and Dru Anthrop. Today is possibly their final game in Mackey Arena (as they can still play at home int he NIT or CBI) and they will always be Boilermakers. They won't get honored banners in the rafters like guys in the previous two classes before them, but they have impacted the program in their four years. They were part of a Big Ten championship team and won in all 12 Big Ten arenas int heir tenure. They were also part of four NCAA Tournament wins.

Let's thank them with a win today.
