Northwestern at Purdue: How to Watch & Game Thread

New, 251 comments

Your eyes are not deceiving you. Northwestern is a ranked team in basketball.

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

After all the fun of signing day it is time for some basketball. We get a ranked team at home in a surprisingly big game for the Big Ten standings. The Wildcats will be without leading scorer Scottie Lindsey tonight, who is sidelined with an illness. Purdue needs to take advantage of this and hold serve at home if it wants to stay alive in the B1G.
