Purdue hoops fan? Check out this T-Shirt

I post this for my Purdue fans. I came across a Brad Miller shirt on the internet today, and it’s pretty awesome. The shirt, which can be purchased on skreened.com,¬†features nine squares on the front, each one representing a different jersey Miller has worn during his career, starting with Purdue and ending with the Minnesota Timberwolves. It also includes his Team USA jersey, which is a cool touch. And at the bottom of the shirt, it reads “B-RAD” in bold font. If you’re a Miller fan or a Purdue fan — or even just a fan of any of the

Who's on your school's all-time hoops team?

If you compiled your school’s all-time basketball team, who would land on it? The guys over at HammerAndRails.com tackled the query with their beloved Boilermakers, and the result, as you might expect, is unbelievably talented. See their all-time Purdue team. That’s an impressive set of names. How much so? Put it this way: Chris Kramer, he of the tenacious defense, couldn’t even make it as the last guy off the bench. I’m willing to bet every college coach has a spot on his roster for a player like Kramer. HammerAndRails.com’s all-time starting 5 Glenn Robinson Rick Mount Joe Barry Carroll

Six ex-Big Ten stars invited to NBA Combine

Wisconsin’s Jordan Taylor was a late addition to the NBA Combine, but he’ll join Illinois’ Meyers Leonard, Michigan State’s Draymond Green, Ohio State’s William Buford and Jared Sullinger and Purdue’s Robbie Hummel at the event June 6-8 in Chicago (see the full list of players). The combine is a great way for players to make last-minute improvements to their draft stock, and that’s exactly what these guys will try to do.

Crossroads Classic extended through 2014

The Crossroads Classic, a one-day event featuring a doubleheader between Butler, Indiana, Notre Dame and Purdue’s men’s basketball teams, isn’t going anywhere. On Tuesday, athletic directors of the four schools agreed to a two-year extension to keep one of college basketball’s premier nonconference events at Bankers Life Fieldhouse through 2014. A season ago in the inaugural event, Indiana beat Notre Dame and Butler topped Purdue. This season, on Dec. 15, 2012, Indiana plays Butler and Purdue takes on Notre Dame. The opponents rotate each season, with Indiana and Purdue never meeting. The Crossroads Classic, modeled after the Hoosier Classic of

5 Early Big Ten Breakout Hoops Players

Every year, players who weren’t big-time contributors one season become just that the very next. For example, there was Meyers Leonard last year and Darius Morris two seasons ago. Get BTN.com Brent Yarina’s early top five 2012-13 breakout candidates in this post. To be eligible for this list, a player had to play in the 2011-12 season, while not starting more than half of his team’s games or averaging double digits. Random, I know, but everyone seems to define “breakout” differently, so I applied a few qualifiers. Otherwise, some would consider, say, Aaron White and Dre Hollins breakout candidates, while
