Matt Painter is off to a nice start at Purdue. Getting the team to the NCAA, and a win in the tourney, while unimpressive by Purdue's traditional standards, is indeed impressive given the program Painter inherited a year ago.
An interesting win this evening. Carl Landry played very well offensively, defensively, and hit his free throws. Chris Lutz hit some big threes in the first half (4-4 from behind the arc). And Kramer played a solid game at PG. That said, overall this game was about Arizona's laziness moreso than Purdue's hustle. Purdue is going to have to play a lot smarter if they want to be within single digits of Florida on Sunday. Hopefully my Florida alum neighbor invites us over to watch the game on his 10+ foot screen.
