It’s time to defend home court. Purdue almost always plays its best basketball in Mackey, and after letting a road win at Maryland slip away on Tuesday it is time to get a home win and stay on track for March, especially with a daunting road trip to Minnesota coming up.
This is a business trip home. Time to take care of it.
Oh, and Sasha Stefanovic is back!
