Just don't screw up.

NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Nebraska Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

Purdue is favored on the road by more than 5 points. That is a giant warning bell that things could get rough.

Remember, there is nothing special about this. Just find a way to avoid the bad loss, especially when a win all but clinches an NCAA berth.
