Boilermaker basketball is back! We officially begin the drive for a 24th Big Ten Championship and hopefully a 3rd Final Four (and 1st national title?) tonight at 8pm against SIU-Edwardsville. It is a BTNPlus televised game, but in the details here I have included links to the Purdue radio network where you can listen to Larry Clisby online. Casey is also in the house for us with the media credential.
