Purdue at Wisconsin: GameThread & How to Watch

Once again, Purdue needs a big win in Madison.

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

Last season Purdue’s Big Ten title run really got started in earnest with an overtime win in Madison. There will be no Big Ten title run this season, but making the NCAA Tournament is still possible. It gets a lot more possible with another win in Madison, where Matt Painter’s teams have acquitted themselves quite well over the years (the 2018 game DID NOT HAPPEN).

This may not be a “must win” game, but it is probably a “It was ould be a very good idea to win.”
