Purdue vs. Illinois - Open Thread

Can Purdue end the regular season with a win?

NCAA Basketball: Michigan at Illinois Ron Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Last regular season game of the year, the conference is already wrapped up by at least two games. Sort of a strange situation. Purdue will be taking on an Illinois team that they haven’t seen yet this year and that has underachieved. It should make for an interesting matchup.
