Purdue can finish no worse than 6th in the Big Ten and has a two game lead on a double by in the Big Ten Tournament, but there is still work to do. If Purdue wins today or against Michigan State this week it clinches a double bye. Also, there is still the small chance that we can win the Big Ten. Thad Matta is 16-8 against Purdue with only one loss at home to the Boilers. Coach Painter is just 6-15 against the Buckeyes, making this a very difficult challenge.
