Tennessee State at Purdue: GameThread & How to Watch

It’s one more tune-up game before Christmas

NCAA Basketball: Butler at Purdue Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

This is a tune-up game, but we must still be wary. Wofford got North Carolina last night. Furman nearly got Tennessee. Albany nearly got Louisville. If you’re not fully awake, you can lose any night.

Purdue would probably have to be in a coma to lose this one. I don’t think the senior leadership will allow that.
