Purdue Basketball Player Reviews: Jon McKeeman

McKeeman was a human victory cigar for Purdue in 2014-15.

The last junior to review before getting into the sophomores is yet another walk-on that played sparingly.

Jon McKeeman - Junior

12 minutes in five games, 0 for 1 FG, Academic All-Big Ten

There really is not a whole lot to say about McKeeman. He essentially had a 12 trillion over the course of five games. He had one shot attempt, which he missed, a foul, and a turnover. These numbers were down after he played 10 minutes in 2013-14 and scored five points on 2 of 5 shooting while hitting a three-pointer. Essentially, McKeeman was the team's victory cigar. He played against Indiana and in the four early season blowouts, but that is it. If he got into a game you knew it was over.

His biggest achievement was being named Academic All-Big Ten, Purdue's second such selection along with Rapheal Davis. The junior in Movement and Sports Science is getting it done in the classroom.

Future Expectations:

Unlike Stephen Toyra, McKeeman has been almost exclusively a practice body. He has only played 23 total minutes in three seasons before this one. At 6'1" and 190 pounds. I don't think we'll see him much in actual games unless Purdue gets up by a lot late.
