On Saturday the No.14 Purdue Boilermakers ran into some problems in Ann Arbor as they got off of their bus at Chrysler Arena. Some dun named Moe Wagner was waitin’ at the door with his shirt off ready to fight a boy for everything they had. Somebody must have said somethin’ about his momma or pushed his sister off of the curve. Ole boy led the Wolverines to a 82-70 blastin’ of the first place Boilermakers in conference play.
Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Purdue had no answer for that dun in the first half. He scored 22 of his 24 points durin’ that stretch and he set the tone for the rest of the game. Put it like this playa, Biggie Swanigan and Isaac Haas combined to outscore Wagner by only two points. Swanigan finished with 18 points and 5 rebounds and Haas struggled to make a difference with 8 points and 6 rebounds. It’s not often that a boy outplays the two of them.
This loss snaps a six game winnin’ streak for the Boilermakers (23-6, 12-4 Big Ten) and they could fall into a tie for first place with Wisconsin if the Badgers win at Michigan State on Sunday. Either way, the boyz from West Lafayette are still in the driver’s seat in the Big Ten. Losin’ a ball game from time to time is goin’ to happen. Now they get to tap the duns up from Bloomington on Tuesday to get back on the bike. They’ll be ridin’ that joint with no hands by the second half and will probably be ridin’ blind folded before the game is over with IU bein’ as bad as they are.
They’ll finish the season with Northwestern on the road on March 5. I’m lookin’ forward to seein’ how the Boilermakers will do in the Big Ten Tournament and on to the NCAA Tournament. Tournament play has always been their Achilles. Hopefully this year will be different. Stop me when I start lyin’!
