After two single-digit win seasons, I never would have thought 2007 would have ended with a NCAA tourney win and taking the defending champs the distance. Alas, that's exactly where Purdue ended up, and kudos to Matt Painter for turning the program around so quickly.
Ah, if only David Teague would have had one of his 25+ point nights that he is capable of but we rarely see, today's outcome would have been different. Nonetheless, it wasn't to be. We'll see if Purdue can build on this for next year, despite the loss of Teague and Landry. Good job, Boilers. Thanks for getting me excited about Purdue basketball again.
