Welcome into our live game thread for today's game against the undefeated Purdue Boilermakers. We have live coverage from the Kohl Center today so feel free to ask any questions about things you don't see on TV during the game.
If you didn't get a chance to read it, check out our game preview, which includes our keys to the game and my prediction.
One thing I touched on the preview, but failed to go in-depth on, is the matchup between Jon Leuer and JaJuan Johnson. Johnson is already and All-Big Ten defensive performer, but he also is one of the few players in the nation that has the size and agility to slow down Leuer. We know how Leuer causes matchup problems on big guys because he can drive right by them, but Johnson is quick enough to stay in front of him. He also averages 2.2 blocks per game.
One of my keys to today's game was attacked Johnson early and getting him in foul trouble. That might decide the game.
Feel free to leave you predictions and comments below. I'll be here inside the Kohl Center all day with the latest coverage!
