It has been nine days since we have seen Purdue play basketball. It has been 21 days since we have seen Purdue play good basketball. Will the turnaround for the 2014-15 season start today? The good news is that there is still time to turn this season around and have a good run through the Big Ten with a young team. The bad news is that we're going to start playing a lot of good teams in a row and a bad streak can become an awful run very easily.
Fortunately, we have two home games against opponents we can beat to start conference play. Let the turnaround begin!
T-Mill is at the Pacers-Heat game, so Jumboheroes will take you home.
