Purdue at Iowa: GameThread & How to Watch

The Boilers can take a huge step back towards postseason play with a win tonight.

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

Purdue doesn’t absolutely need a win tonight, but getting one would be a very, very good idea. Right now most projections list Purdue as the 6th team out of the NCAA Tournament field, but that can change. Winning tonight and Saturday at home would vault Purdue back in, in my opinion, with a win in the Big Ten Tournament making us a lock.

Worry about Saturday and next week later. Just get tonight.
