Western Illinois at Purdue: GameThread & How to Watch

New, comments

Purdue hosts its penultimate non-conference game.

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

This should be an easy one, so sit back, relax, and enjoy a nice win at home. Western Illinois simply does not have the horses to hang with us very long. They have a couple of good wings that can hit threes and score, but Purdue should be able to dominate even with only eight scholarship players available.
