Glenn Robinson III was mired in a slump entering Sunday’s game versus Penn State.

Matt Painter Ejected from Game vs. Illinois

Entering Wednesday night’s game at Illinois, Purdue had lost three of its last four contests.

Brust Brings The Badgers To Overtime

Right when Ben Brust’s buzzer-beater fell Saturday afternoon, it brought back memories of Evan Turner’s game-winner in the 2010 Big Ten tourney. Honestly, the two shots are that similar. Not just from the standpoint they both came against Michigan, either. Both also followed clutch shots by the Wolverines and were released from close to the same spot on the floor.

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

It was just a few days ago that BTN analyst Tim Doyle insisted Purdue freshman A.J. Hammons is a serious threat to compete for next season’s Big Ten Player of the Year. It was a bold claim, and it’s one Doyle won’t soon regret. Certainly not after Hammons’ latest coming out party against No. 3 Indiana. It came in a blowout defeat, but, man, Hammons was terrific. There was the career-high 30 points, the five blocks, and the dunks. Watch Hammons’ third and best flush of the night now and catch the others in this post.
