Purdue and Minnesota face off in an early important game for NCAA Tournament considerations.

USA TODAY Sports

This is a big one for the Boilers. As we know, Purdue is already in an 0-1 hole after losing at home to Ohio State, so the Boilers need a victory to stay alive in the Big Ten race. It is also important because it would come against a team that is also fighting for an NCAA berth.

So let's watch it and talk about it here. There is a massive snowstorm hitting central Indiana right now and it is going to be cold enough for the nitrogen in the air to condense into liquid, so we might as well stay in, stay warm, and watch basketball.
