Nojel Eastern to the locker room with a non-contact wrist injury?

And, he's back. Along with Haarms and Wheeler one of three guys Purdue can't lose this year.

What an absolute pants making GBS threads by Purdue. 3 turnovers w/ less than 2 to go and a 2 possession lead, and tons of missed shots in the paint and at the rim.

I mean he had to shoot there with the shot clock expiring, but Nojel Eastern is the worst shooter I've ever seen.

Edit: Avoiding the triple post here, this Purdue team is just excruciating to watch. There's talent there but they are loving awful right now.

I think they'll be fine by January, but there are some big shoes to fill and big adjustments to make by some of the Sophs to get there.

Purdue is bad right now. They're up only 10 at the half against literally the worst division 1 program in CBB and a team that Eastern Illinois beat 98-34 earlier this week.

Purdue's shooting is so bad, and they can't seem to get the ball in to Haarms in the post right now. 16-2 run to start the 2nd half, but that's mostly due to 2nd chance points, they're murdering Chicago St on the glass.

And I think Nojel Eastern's wrist is worse than has been let on, he can't shoot and took 2 FTs right handed.

32-17. But Virginia figured something out at the end and Purdue was pretty stagnant the last 8 minutes or so. It's going to be a close finish and it's going to finally kill me.

Did not expect that to happen. Not going to hit 52% of 3 every night, but the new starting line up tonight clicked better than any other group this season. They should have a good run going into Butler at the Crossroads Classic.

Bad? They broke 20 before halftime. How much more do you want?

Trevion Williams is an amazing passer

https://twitter.com/bigtengeek/status/1212917506588983296

But not an amazing shooter from distance, and for some reason he took the buzzer beater from half court and it was his 2nd airballed 3 of the half for him.

For the 3rd year in a row Purdue has a huge halftime lead on Michigan St, 3rd year in a row MSU makes a big run. Purdue's doing a better job this year of pushing the lead back up a bit, but there's a ton of time left.

NVM, Purdue got the benefit of some 50/50 calls and MSU can't stop turning the ball over or missing 3 pointers, lead up to 24 w/ under 5 to go.

Also Trevion Williams is the man, and Michigan State is dumb as hell for not fouling him every time he touches the ball.

They are good at home and bad on the road. Stefanovic is nearly 50% from 3 at home, barely 20 on the road. He's the biggest split, but there are several other doozies on the rest of the roster as well.

I'm obviously biased but it seems like every single review for a flagrant goes against Purdue.

I almost fell out of my chair when Alan Griffin actually got thrown out for stepping on Stefanovic last month

What gets me is the lack of hook and holds Haarms draws, guys 6 or 7 inches shorter tie him up all the time and never get called. Wisconsin did it all night in Madison.

Ahh you mentioned that. Slow refresh.

Tipped ball gets called an over and back, soft rear end call on a missed 3 sends IU to the line for 3. Awesome! Purdue's going to blow this though because they're going to miss 3 1 and 1 front ends.
