This time it's Purdue's time to choke away a victory
the Boilermakers were in control until they decided to go over 8 minutes without a point in the second half. Purdue missed two of three free throws in the final thirty seconds when they could have made it interesting.
this certainly was a big-time road win and i'm sure it's been a long time since NU won at Indiana and at Purdue within a week. seeding for the conference tournament is still very much in the air; i haven't done all the math yet but i think there still exists a scenario where Northwestern could finish 5th and get a first-round bye. wow, i can't believe i just typed that.
