#36 Purdue Boilermakers: College Basketball 111 in 111

purdue-basketball

Welcome to The Sports Bank’s third annual college basketball season preview series.  Two years we looked at 99 teams in 99 days.  Last year, we were slightly more aggressive and expanded to 111 teams in 111 days and will do so again as we look ahead to the 2012-2013 season.

We will rank the 75 power conference teams and top 36 mid-majors in reverse power ranking order.  We’ll break down rosters, transfers, incoming freshmen, non-conference schedules, and pick a player to watch for each team.

With three of their top four scorers gone from last year, the Purdue Boilermakers are in a bit of a transition year.  In typical Matt Painter fashion though, he will get the most of out his roster and have the Boilers back in the NCAA Tournament.
