I hope you’ve all had a long and restful break. I hope you saw all of your loved ones and was able to spend a lot of times with everyone who is important to you. Because now? Now, it’s just basketball time. It’s a long sprint through the Big Ten after today’s final non-conference game and then it will be March and April before you know it.

Today’s final tune-up game is against the Eastern Kentucky Colonels who are one of the worst teams that Purdue will face this season. According to Ken Pom they are 264th overall while being ranked 227th on offense and an even worse 292nd on defense. Purdue should have their way with an opponent who allows opponents to shoot an incredible 40+% from beyond the arc.
