Purdue at Northwestern: GameThread & How to Watch

This is a must-win

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

Yep, this is the famous “must-win”. Purdue’s season is virtually over if it loses to last place Northwestern, and it is a far cry from last year’s trip to Evanston, which clinched a Big Ten title. Now we’re just trying to keep our NCAA Tournament hope alive. A loss here would be an absolutely crippling one, so let’s just avoid that and get the win, shall we?
