Purdue played a good game on defense vs Samford, but had some trouble at times scoring points. Turnovers and missed free throws seemed to be the two things that stood out most as being below what is expected of this team. Lowe had a big 2nd half and finished with a game high 20 points. Teague added 10 points. Kartelo and Buckley led Purdue in rebounds with 8, as Buckley was continuely jumping above opponents to snag rebounds. This was not a bad game for the first regular season game, a lot better than getting a loss like the football team did. Looking forward to the trip to Alaska this week. I will post recaps for the Alaska games on Sunday. I do not have the plus/minus for this year yet, but I will be uploading the stat sheet tomorrow.
