Does Isaac Haas play?
If he does, is he effective?
Can Purdue win this one without him?
We’ll learn all of this. Purdue is going for a second straight Sweet 16 appearance and a school single-season record 30th win against an in-state foe that has gotten the better of us for most of the last 20 years. We did get them back in Indy thee months ago though.
We know a date with Texas Tech in Boston awaits next week, but there is still work to do.
