Wow, what a game today. Purdue played hard all 40 minutes and finally came up with a victory in a close game. I'm still trying to regain my voice after yelling at the game. Kilgore had a great shooting night 6-9 fgs, his injury to his shooting hand last week makes this even more amazing. He made some plays and was not at fault on the technical foul, but stuff like that happens sometimes. It won't happen to him again that I am sure of. Purdue had 6 players in double figures and played tough defense most of the game. McKnight had only 3 turnovers against the full court press which is not bad, most of those were early in the game as in the 2nd half he seemed to have figured out how to break the press whenever he got the ball. The 84 points scored makes it seems as though Purdue did not play good defense however Louisville shot under 39% from the field, but the refs called 30 fouls on Purdue and 29 on Louisville, plenty of them were touch fouls on both sides. Each team made 28 fts, which is much higher than usual. Overrall the team played well, but not as good as the first game, however the Keady Ball score is still in the mid-80's, Purdue should win most games in which they score 85 or more points in Keady Ball.
