I know it's Northwestern, but I hope we don't have to see another year of everybody rushing the court after they beat Purdue. 

I don't care what they do after beating Purdue.. as long as they beat 'em. Boiler down!

What a great game. Jones jacking up all those 3s before fouling out when Edey can’t be stopped. Lol.

Glad they lost. I still think they win the B1G but this start helps. I thought NW was going to be down this year. Maybe still will but that was a gritty effort by them. Smart team.

Jones showed how important he is though.  When he fouled out seemed like Northwestern took advantage of their other guards.    Having a player like Edey is definitely a huge advantage however it messes with their offense at times.    Painters offense which in years past was something I liked watching is basically unwatchable at times.   Can’t blame him for just getting Edey the ball but man watching Purdue this year is a chore if you actually want to watch offensive flow.    Nobody other than Purdue fans want to watch a game that is foul shot after foul shot after foul shot.     Purdue is a really good team ( really good Edey) but I will take Marquette, UConn, Arizona, Kansas or Kentucky in March but will acknowledge if the game if reffed a certain way no one will stop Edey

Jones is really valuable defensively but is not a point guard in any way. Smith is limited but without him they would be in trouble on offense. 

If either Smith or Edey gets hurt or in foul trouble they are a hugely lesser team.

I would like to see more angles of the timeout before edey turned the ball over in regulation. Never seen that done and if that was the play why wasn't edey signaling it immediately rather than trying to pass?

Purdue will win a lot of games, look dominant at times and probably run the conference. That said any decent guard or guard combo can run them out of the tournament.

*unless Edey sprains an ankle; if that happens they will fail miserably.

He's built like a truck, he won't get injured. 

I want to see them fail at full strength. 

Pssshh. Xavier Johnson is built like a truck, was never injured, and is now on his second straight hobbled year.

Not wishing for injuries, but it can happen to anyone and Purdue is now into their second straight season with literally zero injuries for their rotation players.
