With both of the B1G’s banner basketball programs (from a traditional sense) down this season, someone else needs to step up this March Madness. This Purdue basketball team has the best chance of rising to that occasion.
Indiana, the league’s most storied program to Gen-Xers and everyone older, is way down this season, especially so by their very lofty standards.
Unless they pull off a miracle B1G Tournament run, they’re not dancing this year.
Michigan State, the B1G juggernaut to Millenials and younger, is substantially down from their usual high standard of quality. The Spartans are a bubble team, and not many really expect them to do a whole lot in the big dance next month, should they qualify.Follow paulmbanks
