I've seen Purdue live twice, at Mackey, this year. Here's what stood out to me. On the one hand: Not even close to as good a team as they were last year Difficulties attacking a zone (even if ours continues to be dreadful) Nojel Eastern not being remotely the player I thought he could be Proctor only legit constant offensive threat On the other hand: Very strong man to man defense. Putting a lot of pressure on the passing lanes. Combine that with Haarms in the middle, and they are tough to score against. Mackey continues to be one of the toughest environments to play in I think our chances are better than the 6.7% ESPN gives us right now. But it would take a really strong shooting night to get us the W. We will struggle to get open shots.
