The Final Tune-Up: IPFW At Purdue GameThread

On paper, this should be an easy win. there has been no such thing often in this non-conference season. Tonight is our final chance to work on games before conference play begins and the game start counting in earnest. As always, I think that 20 wins in the magic number to make the NCAA Tournament. That means if we win tonight's game we need to win 10 conference games to probably be safe. Five of those wins should come against Iowa, Penn State, and Nebraska, but it looks like it is going to be a dogfight int he middle of the pack for the other five wins.

Let's not look too far ahead though. We still need to assure that tonight is a win. High Point and Western Carolina were too much of a struggle and we still have a bad taste in our mouths from the collapse against Butler. It's time to go to work, Boilers.
