After more than a week the Boilers will take the court for the final game of 2012. It is also the last non-conference game before conference play begins at home against Illinois on Wednesday. This is not a game that will help Purdue's dreadful RPI of 202. The best team RPI-wise Purdue has played is Bucknell, with Notre Dame and Xavier being the only teams above 100 with them. The best win Purdue has is vs. No. 191 Clemson.
Well, the conference season will offer plenty of chances with No. 3 Michigan (twice), No. 11 Illinois (twice), No. 12 Minnesota, No. 16 Indiana (twice), No. 31 Michigan State (twice), and No. 36 Ohio State as top 50 games.
Let's just go get this one, shall we?
