Twitter: Favorite Hummel moments

Wednesday was Senior Night at Mackey Arena, and that meant it was Purdue fans’ final chance to say goodbye to Robbie Hummel, as well as Lewis Jackson and Ryne Smith. As great as Jackson and Smith are, Hummel was the star of the festivities. The forward, of course, came to Purdue along with JaJuan Johnson and E’Twaun Moore, and the trio put Purdue back on the national map. Unfortunately, injuries plagued Hummel throughout his career and kept him off the court for a year and a half. I went to Twitter to ask Purdue fans for their favorite Hummel moment or memory. See the responses in this post.

My moment: The incredible one-on-one battle with Ohio State’s Evan Turner. Come to think of it, tonight’s performance (26 points, 8 rebounds, 6 assists) wasn’t all that bad, either. Read the AP recap.

I liked them all except the big loss at Michigan State. It is a great family.

A great ball-player, and an outstanding individual. Boiler-up (PU ’80)

Robbie is special because he exemplifies what it means to be a Boilermaker – someone who never gives up, even in the face of extreme adversity. As an alum (’86), I am very proud of how he (and Ryne and Lewis) have represented Purdue over the last several years.
