Purdue finally takes the floor in Indy

NCAA Basketball: Purdue at Penn State Matthew OHaren-USA TODAY Sports

Purdue finally takes the court tonight! It is only the 10th game of the event this year, but Purdue is the last of the 14 teams to play its first game. Nine teams have already gone home, and Purdue could end up playin in three of the last four games.

Such is the life of the double bye. This is the fourth time Purdue will open its tournament with a double bye against a team playing its third game in three days. It is a tremendous advantage, and no team that has had to play on Wednesday in the Big Ten Tournament has made it to the Saturday session.

Purdue is also playing to secure at least a 3 seed in the NCAAs, with the door open to a 2 seed if it gets some help. A win also likely secures that Purdue will play in Indianapolis for the first and second rounds, so it is a big game.
