Purdue is back at home for the final game of the first half of Big Ten play.

NCAA Basketball: Wisconsin at Purdue Sandra Dukes-USA TODAY Sports

Purdue’s next critical stretch of the season begins tonight as we try to keep pace with Ohio State. The Buckeyes are already 9-0 in conference play and have three relatively easy games before coming to West Lafayette, including tonight against Penn State.

All we can do is take care of business, and as long as we don’t lose at home we’re in good shape. Time to defend Mackey.
