Matt Painter recently completed his 15th season as head coach for Purdue. He has won three Big Ten Championships (and come within a game of two more), reached five Sweet 16s, and has come as close as you possibly can to a Final Four without actually making it. That is a lot of winning over 15 seasons, and there is a lot more to come.
As we are all on lockdown due to COVID-19 we might as well remember some of the more memorable wins. Many have come in Mackey Arena. A few have come in the NCAA Tournament. With the case of many, they carry a “what if” use to various injuries that happened at the absolute worst time.
They are all still memorable wins, however. As we go through the countdown I hope you all have as much fun remembering some of these great moments as I am. This is a great series to write even if there wasn’t a pandemic going on.
