So what can we expect from here? This is one of coach Painter’s most balanced teams. It has four definite post players, three point guards, three shooters, a defensive leader in Davis, and versatile players that can play multiple positions. Seeing Purdue as a preseason top 15 team would not be a surprise, and being one of the favorites in the Big Ten along with Maryland, Michigan State, and Indiana is also expected.

Of course, we have a long, long way to go, but this is going to be a fun season.
