Don’t screw this up.

NCAA Basketball: Crossroads Classic-Purdue at Butler Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

This one is pretty simple; don’t screw this up. Are we seriously going to let a team like Central Michigan walk into Mackey Arena and beat us? This is a buy game for an easy win. It is a chance to fix Purdue’s broken offense and gain confidence by simply seeing the ball go through the basket for some guys.
